ElZetta High Output Lights: New, Tough, and BRIGHT

ElZetta High Output Lights: New, Tough, and BRIGHT

As I left the 2011 SHOT Show, I found myself seated next to Dave Barnett. Dave had been at the show, but it’s a huge show, so I had never been by his booth. Dave demonstrated his very high quality flashlight to me- I was especially impressed by the intuitive and easy switch between modes by a quick twist of the rear bezel- and when he had a tester available, I reviewed the ZFL-M60 here. … Read entire article »

Small Impact Tool Basics

I have moderated the Non-Firearm Weapons Forum at The High Road since the site was created in 2002. A frequent question posed on THR asks what weapon should be chosen if a firearm cannot be carried.  My first suggestion for a small defensive tool that can be carried everywhere is usually a flashlight.  Flashlights are useful in general, both for tasks and for illuminating dark areas that may contain human or environmental dangers.  If forced to … Read entire article »

Ultimate Tactical Light- Testing the ElZetta ZFL-M60

Ultimate Tactical Light- Testing the ElZetta ZFL-M60

I have loved lights since I was young, but as I began to come into adulthood, I grew to appreciate   them as survival tools.  Lights, firearms, knives, and fire-starting devices are the most basic survival necessities besides food and water.  Some of my earliest quality flashlights were Pelicans and MagLites, and then I discovered SureFire flashlights. MagLite flashlights had been used by many security and law enforcement professionals, as well as thousands of hunters and homeowners, … Read entire article »
