    Got stopped by police for Zebralight SC32

    Keith you were correct to go ahead and advise the officer you were armed and while he may not have shown it I am sure he appreciated it none the less. I also understand and agree that both officers in my case could have assumed I was not the person who was involved in the assault however both of...

    Got stopped by police for Zebralight SC32

    I must say this thread has moved along nicely and it is good to see discussions without anger and over the top comments. Of course as many can see by my user name I am an officer and as such will usually side with the police. Yes in my 18 years on patrol I have seen some officers overstep their...

    CPF will eventually linger on as an example of how BBS were killed off by over modera

    I must say that I am a member of many forums and CPF has always been the best. It has also been the longest running for me and to this day I learn something new about my hobby each time I visit here. I was always amazed at the sheer amount of information available here to us all and better yet...

    How a flashlight could save a life..

    Early on in my career I learned to have two each of many things I used nightly. Back maybe 15 years past I carried a big main light incandescent (Wolf-Eyes). This light worked perfectly however pulled pretty hard on a pair of regulated 18500 batteries. I once chased a robbery suspect in a...

    5 Nights With No Power Across N. Alabama Due to Storm Damage

    As a coincidence last week I found myself visiting every wally world within 50 miles trying to find those HID lights that were on sale for 10 dollars. The first few stores I visited I found the flashlight section completely empty. It took me a few trips to realize this was due to the storms and...

    Lathe Kills

    I know nothing about lathes so forgive my ignorance on this question if the answer is obvious. Are there not any safety features built in these machines such as a foot pedal release or kill switch? If not maybe makers could think of a way to add such a safety feature but again I know nothing...

    Butter and Bread and Sandwiches Oh My!

    I was raised on peanut butter and banana as well as buttered bread and cheese sandwiches. My granny often also made us pineapple and cheese sandwiches that were actually pretty good. I still often like a good grill cheese with lots of butter and sharp cheddar cheese. The good block style of...

    Shipping from Germany??

    I have found a few lights that I would like to buy and a member who lives in Germany has them for sale. I have no problem with the member as he is a really nice person and very reliable. I also have no problem with the cost of shipping as I know it is expected and necessary for such long...

    Members Picture Thread

    No sad to say I have no news on a new Robocop movie. While the first ones were kind of far fetched I did enjoy them. It is kind of a tradition for officers to get a nick-name and that one stuck with me when I was assigned to my first beat in a very rough area.....the local thugs figured out...

    CPF, a decade after!

    Man how some things have changed. In the 7 years I have been here I am still amazed at how far lights in general have progressed. When I first joined I remember many nights reading on how to modify the Solitaire to an LED and everyone thinking this was a great mod. Of course back then it was...

    Cop in a handicapped parking space!?

    I agree that confronting an officer while you are angry is not a good idea however if he is a patrolman in your area you can address the issue calmly as you will likely see him again. As an officer I see this many ways and one of the worst ways is that often a thread such as this will spin...

    Cop in a handicapped parking space!?

    In 13 years of police work I have seen good- cops semi good cops- and simply bad cops. I have also slowly learned that some people do not like any cops for whatever reasons. I was shocked when I began my career to find that many people hold police under a magnifying glass waiting for any chance...

    I have a problem with alcohol...please help

    I have never drank however I see many people daily who do.....often these people are in the back of my patrol car and have done something to get them jailed. I will often try to help them however honestly no one can repair a problem in 5 minutes that took years to create. The single most common...

    For some reason that struck me as very funny with DM51 saying he should ban himself....imagine that the Ban Hammer himself giving himself a week off for neglect towards his passion. I am still laughing about this....nice to know even DM51 himself is not above his own very watchfull eyes...
