Safety and security threats are everywhere, and, more and more, “regular folks” find themselves having to increasingly think like personal protection specialists. There is a wealth of reasons why life even in so-called “civilized,” developed nations is now fraught with risk to the degree it is, but the “whys” matter not at all when a street assault or some other kind of attack is upon you in the moment – all that matters at that time is, “Are you ready?”
Part of being ready includes ensuring one has the right equipment to navigate out of immediate danger and back to a zone of safety. Sure, carrying a firearm is an excellent idea, but, much of the time, the trouble you might face is not something that demands such a “bottom line” answer. Additionally, depending on where you are at the time, gun carry might not be a legal option, or may otherwise be impractical.
This said, one of the excellent alternatives to firearm carry that appears to be popular with security specialists is the so-called tactical flashlight.
A tactical flashlight is, simply, a flashlight that has extra, or special, features that make it particularly conducive for use inside of tactical settings, such as those normally encountered by police or military personnel while operating in active threat environments. Examples of such features include an extra-bright light useful for seeing in an especially-dark setting and/or for disorienting an adversary, a reinforced outer shell or cover that adds resiliency so that the flashlight may be used as a striking instrument without damaging the electrical components inside, and an option to extend the length of the flashlight so that it can double as a genuine baton.
Security expert Scott Stewart, in an article he wrote for Security Weekly called “How to Pack for Emergency Situations,” begins discussing the great utility of having a flashlight handy when a fire breaks out, but quickly adds how useful a “high-intensity tactical flashlight” can be when you want your flashlight to also serve as a self-defense weapon:
“Flashlights are another lifesaver in a fire. Though I do carry a flashlight with me most of the time, in the form of the one on my smartphone, it is not particularly strong. Therefore, I also always carry a high-intensity tactical flashlight in my briefcase. This flashlight would be far more effective than my cellphone in cutting through smoke in a dark subway tunnel or hotel stairwell. A tactical flashlight also doubles as an effective weapon. Even in places where it is difficult to carry weapons legally, such as Japan or the United Kingdom, I have never had anyone stop me from carrying a flashlight.”
One particularly good option, as tactical flashlights go, is the STRIKELIGHT. The STRIKELIGHT comes with each of the key features you want to have when you go the extra mile to upgrade your present flashlight to one that can provide genuine utility in a variety of threat environments:
- Made from solid aluminum, this is a serious self-defense tool that can take out any attacker, big or small.
- At simple twist of the handle this will extend another 4 inches allowing you to strike from a large distance.
- It also works as a blinding flashlight with 3 light functions. The first function is full brightness, the 2nd is half power and the 3rd function is strobe lights.
- On top of this you can also adjust the light size. Keep the strike light closed for a wider light. This is best for close combat. Then twist and extend the baton and the light becomes smaller and more focused. Use this feature for long distances.
The plain fact is that the STRIKELIGHT is the “bottom line” when it comes to professional, tactical flashlights.
What’s more, this professional security tool comes with a 100% money-back guarantee that’s good for a full 60 days. Buy the STRIKELIGHT, and put it through its paces – if you decide, inside of the first two months of owning it, that it’s really not for you, then simply request a refund.
