It was bad enough when I learned of idiots using green lasers on pilots. Now here is a MOST DISTURBING development about an alleged "flashlight bomb". From the sound of it, this could be a 2 cr123 light. I wonder if this was a exposion caused by the 2 CR123 cells as opposed to an actual expolsive device.
either way this does not help innocent, dedicated, well meaning people who wisely choose to wear 2 to 4 lights on their belt.
Of course NO flashlight expolsion is a desirable event yet knowing HOW this exposion was caused could help prevent this in the future. ****after reading the article again THIS IS REALLY BAD!, apparently not caused by cheap cr123s but actual explosives!!!!****
100 years ago people could buy all sorts of stuff in the mail or in catalogs.Let's hope this is not the start of "POLICE USE ONLY" lights forbidden to own by the general public.
