Faq

Are tactical flashlights legal?

Yes. Tactical flashlights are not considered weapons even though they can be used that way. Of course, if you do use your tactical flashlight as a weapon, there may be legal consequences.

What are the main advantages of carrying a tactical flashlight?

A tactical flashlight provides light for tasks but it can also blind people or animals that may be trying to attack you. This moment of blindness gives you time to getaway. The tactical bezel and weight of your light mean you always have an object you can use to increase the force of your blows when fighting off an attacker.

What survival skills can I practice with a tactical flashlight?

A flashlight can be used to signal for help during an emergency or even send other messages. Tactical lights are made to be very tough and can be used to break automotive glass to escape your car if you are in an accident. Flashlights with a removable glass lens protector can be used to start a fire. The glass lens protector is removed and then used to magnify sunlight.
