Streamlight has always made it their goal to produce flashlights that meet very specific needs. Not too long ago I wrote a post about their Fire Vulcan series of flashlights, which were designed for use by fire fighters. Like the Fire Vulcan, each line of Streamlight flashlights fulfills specific needs.
Part of fulfilling specific needs is giving users the ability to customize their flashlight, so Streamlight has made available a number of flashlight accessories. Some of these accessories are simply replacement parts, so if a part is damaged the user doesn’t need to replace the whole unit, but others are specially designed to add new functions or enhance the performance of the flashlight.
One of the most common upgrades for a flashlight is to change the halogen bulb to an LED light. There are a number of reasons to make this change. First, LED lights last a lot longer than halogen bulbs. Most halogen bulbs last about 6 hours, whereas LED lights typically last 100,000 hours. In addition to the extended life of the bulb, LEDs also prolong battery life, as a halogen bulb burns through batteries in about 2 hours. LED lights will use up the same batteries …
Imagine a late night car accident. You’re rattled. The car door is jammed and you or perhaps a loved one is afraid. With all the safety features present in modern automobiles, you might think you’ll be safe. But sometimes the features that keep dangers out can also lock them in. You might be trapped in a burning car. Help might be coming too slow. You may be inhaling smoke. Car windows are made of extremely strong glass. It isn’t easy to break through one with a bare hand, and even if you do get through the glass you’ll most likely be hurt. It’s a time like this that a good tactical pen or tactical flashlight would come in handy.
The Night Armor CREE Tactical Flashlight now comes packaged with a tactical pen at TacticalStore.com. The pen can be used to break glass or for self-defense purposes. Many people regularly carry a pen, so switching to a tactical pen won’t take up extra room, but it will give you extra protection.
The Night Armor Tactical Flashlight sports a powerful LED light that provides long battery life and great performance. Night Armor designed it to be extremely durable, so the tactical …
A rather unique new product we carry at TacticalStore.com is the Cass Creek Waggler. Of the many hunting accessories available, none have sparked the interest around the office that the Waggler has. There are a number of different game calls on the market today, but none have the unique look and function of Cass Creek‘s latest offering.
Looking at the picture, it isn’t hard to imagine why the Cass Creek Waggler generates interest. It’s designed to attract big game. The height of the tail can be adjusted with the four included rods, and it produces sounds for female coyotes, coyote food fights, beta-male coyotes, house cats, cottontails in distress, baby crows, fawns in distress, hares, fox pups, and jack rabbits. These sounds can also be combined, so two sounds are generated at the same time. The Cass Creek Waggler also dispenses scents, and the remote control works up to 100 yards away. It’s a real full-service game call if you’re looking for big game.
I definitely suggest checking out the video for the Cass Creek Waggler Game Call on the product page. We just added it to our store, so you can be the first in your …
June was proclaimed National Great Outdoors Month by President Obama, and while I think it’s a great idea to encourage people to get out into the wild with their families and have an adventure, I don’t see why anyone should stop now that it’s July. There are so many parks that allow camping, whether you’re using a recreational vehicle or a tent. It’s relatively inexpensive to go camping. In fact, if you already have equipment it’s almost free. That’s a lot better than some theme park or resort.
You definitely want to properly equip yourself before an expedition. Take a look at all the
A wildfire in the Los Alamos, New Mexico area is threatening to consume the Los Alamos National Laboratory, which is where the first nuclear bomb was developed during WWII. The fire, which has thus far covered an area of roughly 50,000 acres, has already jumped a highway once and threatened the facility, although that part of the blaze was put out before any damage was done. The local government evacuated a number of nearby residents, although if the blaze engulfs the nuclear laboratory the whole area will need to be cleared, as there is a large amount of potentially hazardous nuclear waste present.
Firefighters are working tirelessly to put out the flames, but even a small change in the wind could prove disastrous. Danger from the fire threatens constantly, but firefighters continue to do their best to keep everyone safe during the crisis.
One of the biggest dangers in a fire is smoke, which not only suffocates victims but also greatly reduces visibility. In thick smoke firefighters may lose sight of each other even if they’re only a few feet apart. With this in mind, Streamlight designed a line of flashlights specifically for firefighters. The Fire Vulcan series give firemen …
