With the rise of domestic terrorism and gun laws growing stricter by the minute, American’s are searching for better ways to protect themselves and their families against crime.
When it comes to everyday carry gear, many have turned to tactical knives but recently a new trend has emerged as many Americans are turning to tactical flashlights.
These are becoming such popular self-defense tools, with their “Attack Style” head and ultra-durability. Many like the G700, also come with a powerful and disorienting “strobe mode” that allows the user to flash a blinding stripe light in to the attackers eyes.
But how effective are tactical flashlights really?
There’s no replacing a pistol and a knife is certainly more frighting but don’t be fooled. The right kind of tactical flashlight can pack quite a punch and shining a light on the attackers face for bystanders to see is something that you can’t do with a knife or gun.
If you’ve ever had someone take a picture of you at night with the flash on, you’ll know how it takes a minute or two for your eyes to re-adjust. Now imagine that flash is 100x brighter and is strobing directly into your eyes. You wouldn’t be able to see a thing, and would most likely lose your sense of balance.
That’s what you get with high output flashlights like the G700 Tactical. The strobe feature is designed to an attacker’s eye sight, so they can’t see what they’re doing, letting you safely run away- or if need be, gain the advantage and attack them using the unique “attack-style” head.
I will tell you that most people underestimate the importance of owning a tactical flashlight. Whether you’re walking alone at night, driving somewhere and break down, or just want a light bright enough to deter animals while you’re camping, tactical flashlights are so bright they give you the advantage.
While we don’t suggest leaving your pistol at home, we will say that owning a tactical flashlight has it’s benefits. It’s great for everyday carry and you never have to worry about traveling with it.
If you’re looking for an ultra-bright and durable tactical flashlight, I’d recommend first checking out the G700. It’s being sold everywhere else for $56 but the folks at Science of Skill, LLC are offering our readers a big discount for this month, so it’s the good time to get them at a discounted price.
If you want to make sure you and your loved ones are always prepared for the worst, this flashlight is a great start.
