    This is a rather expensive ($2000) custom light called SPY Tri-V.
    My website with flashlight, battery and charger information: lygte-info.
    More than 200 battery reviews and 80 charger reviews.
    Compare 18650 LiIon batteries or smaller (RCR123, 16340, 14500, 10450) LiIon batteries.

    Would love to hear the story behind your Night-Ops Gladius.

    The knife and the Gladius accompanied me to Afghanistan and got worked. Quick recap of the Gladius earning its keep. July 2008, we were convoying to a firebase in the southernmost portion of our AO. Last MRAP hits a pressure plate IED, blows front end off, catches fire, crew evacuates. MRAP in front of them turns around to provide cover, promptly hits another IED. We set up a perimeter. Army, in its infinite wisdom wont send in an airstrike to destroy the damaged MRAPs so we get to watch them for a few days till they can get a recovery crew out there (we were in the absolute middle of nowhere). We've got 17 or 18 guys. no heavy weapons (all our heavy stuff burnt up in the one MRAP to be carrying everything). First night, Team Taliban brings it. We held them off and suffered no casualties, miraculously, but we called for reinforcements and more ammo. Our reiforcements was a platoon of polish from the closest FOB, about 4hrs away. These guys are crazy, we saw them coming miles away because they rolled with lights on, and lots of them. When they got close, the platoon commander was trying to find a way to signal them our exact location. I said, "I've got a bright ass light with strobe". He said, let me see it, told the polish to look for a bright white strobe. They found us, and then promptly hit another IED.

    Anyway, the Gladius and knife are some of my most prized possessions and have now been relegated to safe queens. They may be a little rough around the edges, but both work perfectly.

    I don't have anything fancy like some of you guys... but this is what I'm carrying at the moment... Only the LaGriffe and P'Kal stay constant... I also always wear my Bowen Belt Knife, but it doesn't photograph well. Oh yeah, and I've been keeping that DQG Tiny II or whatever on me as well... If you've never owned a P'Kal or a LaGriffe, you're missing out on the two best concealable tactical blades on the market... I used to sell knives exclusively and nothing compares... sorry Emerson guys!

    That's a helluva story. I own a Night-Ops Gladius as well. It's also a shelf queen. But unfortunately for different reasons. It let me down when I needed it. But thankfully not in a similar situation.

    Thank you for your service in helping to keep all of us safe. It's appreciated.

    Thanks Monocrom. My gladius was repaired once. Had a strange issue where the light didn't light up, so I put fresh batteries in it. They immediately got so hot I could barely touch the light. Sent it back to night ops where I think they replaced the switch in the tailcap. Other than that she's worked like a charm. Even took her diving with me in Guam, seals are known good to 120ft (original instruction manual says they're good to 135ft).

    Weklund,
    Love that Baby Browning! Old-school baby!!!! I used to carry an Inka but switched to the PicoPen or whatever it's called because it's smaller. Now I'm thinking of getting one of those titanium Valiant jobbies... If business ever picks up!!!

    I have been collecting guns for many years and this "Baby" was one that I picked up that was a little rough. I hard chromed the frame and parkerized the slide. Tuned it up and gave it a little action job. Excellent little pocket pistol Cal .25 and highly concealable. Very reliable for a tiny semi-auto. My favorite is the Kimber Compact. Good luck with you Valiant quest ....

    This is my 2 tone CZ 75B 9mm, it is equipped with a Crimson Trace lasergrip.
    My 1000 lumen Torchlab triple neutral, in a Cryos and FM round body.
    And I am not that into knives, but this benchmade Ti Pika II is the nicest one I have so I threw it in as well!
