Giving credit where credit is due, I left him the following compliment on his youtube video:
I give you a rough time on my blog (ENDO) lots, but this video was great. Keep up the good work, I watch all your vids even though many of them piss me off.
To which he responded:
Why do you get angry? Did I insult your 1911?
*sigh* I didn’t reply to that but just for kicks I should have said “Because you’re a coward” (note: I know that pisses him off, but as I mentioned before I have no actual opinion on his actions in Iraq). Maybe then I could have got a response like “Oh yea? come to SHOT blog nerd and say that to my face and i’ll break your fucking back!”
My buddies over at 5.11 Tactical want to shine some light into the darkness that one of you lucky readers operates in, with an ATAC™ L1 Tactical Flashlight.
The L1 is a powerful compact product with industry leading performance for a single Lithium battery power source.
Powered by (1) CR123A battery the ATAC™ L1 Tactical Flashlight throws a brilliant 173 ANSI FL1 Lumens of light in a smooth tactical beam pattern while providing 2 hours of runtime on (HIGH) and 46 hours of runtime on (LOW). The tactical Intelligent Switch is designed to silently cycle through all 3 light modes (High/Low/Strobe) using only the Momentary-On function to prevent the “Click” sound from potentially giving up your location. The rotary Dial Lock-Out Switch allows you to instantly lock or unlock the light with just one hand using your thumb to prevent inadvertent activation. Another tactical feature developed by professionals for professionals is the Break-Away Lanyard designed to free your arm from the flashlight in the event of an emergency.
