Hi guys,
I have recently retired and I have more time to visit the forums, I have been shooting for 40 yeras but it is always room to learn more.

I am engaged in testing many flashlights and tactical lights and I have posted a thread about how they perform against each other.

See you in the forums.

Welcome to the forum. Your flashlight posting was informative, do you sell them or just test them as a hobby?

Welcome to our forum, and thanks for introducing yourself.

I'm curious to know if I leaped to the wrong conclusion about your thread on tactical lights. Was that thread for the purpose of promoting tactical lights that you sell, or were you just sharing information that you had found useful?

I moved the thread to the classifieds section, believing that it was the former. Did I err?

I hope you enjoy this forum. I've found it to be better than many out there.

Jeff and the posse members have done a great job of keeping the spammers and trolls at bay while refraining from becoming a topic gestapo. My thanks to all of them.

Were those pictures taken in upstate NY?

Hi guys,
It seems that some of the members have the idea that I am postings these reviews to sell the lights that are reviewed.

I am not a vendor and those lights are from my personal collection, I am a retired watchmaker that has expanded from my home forum The High Road, to cover a few more forums dealing with CCW.

As I own about 200 lights between flashlights and tactical lights, I thought it was a good idea to show the beam shots so the members can compare between them.
These posts are also shared in a few others forums, as it take a lot of money, dedication and time to do these reviews.

Among the several lights reviews, you will also see reviews for the Borealis and the Bear Cub flashlights, those are my own invention and contribution to the mega power in the incandescent field of flashlights,
Of course if I am reviewing so many others it is inevitable that I will review my own lights.

After hunting season I will have more time to post about my other hobbies, navigation, optics (scopes and binoculars) knives, etc.

All the best

Watchmaker, thanks for telling us a bit more about yourself.

You obviously are very passionate about flashlights. I really don't know that flashlights have much relevance on this forum....which is probably why some people were wondering who you were and why you post what you do. But either way, your posts have been infomative and I would bet that if you keep them in the correct locations noone will have any problem.

I must also admit, that on your recommendation I bought the little $25 Rayovac light from Wal-Mart. My wife and I just got back from Costa Rica and it was recommended that we bring a small light with us. So I used that as an excuse to buy a new one. I must say, I am very impressed with the Rayovac light you recommended. It is a well built, bright, piece of equipment. So thanks for the lead.

Flashlights are an essential tool for CCW and personal protection.

Being able to see the BG. Being able to momentarily blind the BG. Being able to deceive the BG as to your location... Indispensable tactical advantages in a self defense situation.

I also own dozens of tactical lights, and am never without one.

In my opinion, that's the funnest part of working in a team environment. I loved getting to practice entering a room using the high-light/gun-low strategy!

Too bad teamwork isn't likely to come into play in a personal=defense situation... :(

Great info on the flashlights. I wasn't a big fan of LED lights until I received some free lights from a company to demo. I'm a big fan, but they just don't seem to have the light when you get out to farther ranges like the older lights do ie: BlackHawk Gladius. I usually have a light with me when I'm carrying though. If its not on my person its in my car. Be safe
