    I'm having people over on Sunday for dinner, drinks, and passing out candy...but they've all been warned that at 10 the tube comes on and the dead will walk and the living will be quiet. Anyone else excited about The Walking Dead on AMC? The comic was very well written and it looks like the...

    Lens questions

    When I buy a light, lens durability is a big issue for me. For instance, I love my SL TT3C. It was my first step above a [email protected], my only hybrid so far, and it feels great in hand and works well for most tasks despite the blue tint of the leds. However it has some battle scars the most noticeable...

    Thoughts on the AZ2....

    ......assuming of course this one makes it to production. I've been looking at this one and while it's primary purpose seems to be for pairing with a hand gun, it occurred to me that this might make for a great light for ice fishing. The grip looks like it should be easy to manage with heavy...

    Pelican Mitylite killing batteries

    Back in February I bought a Mitylite 2xAAA incan. Up until now,I have kept it clipped to the visor in my truck. I thought it would be a nice little light for reading maps and such without having to turn on my dome light which I don't like doing. Here's the problem: I have hardly used it but...

    How often should stored lights be checked?

    How often should you check lights that have batteries in them that are kept for emergencies? I have a few around the house and in my truck that use C and D alkalines. How often should I check for leakage and discharge? I've noticed that the ones in my truck always need to be changed after the...

    TK11 R2?

    I just picked one up and while the box says it has an R2, the instructions say it has a Q5. Did they change the box but not update the manual? Also, it has pos and neg marked on the side. No reverse polarity protection?

    So I've been wanting a SL Microstream for work and decided to go to a local gun shop that carries them and pick up a couple. I walked in and looked around when something on one of the counters caught my eye...a rack of Fenix lights! I forgot all about the microstream and was looking at the...

    Dorcy killed the Spyder?

    Its no longer listed on their website and Amazon says they are out of stock and don't know when they will get more. I really like this light and edc one in my jacket. For $20 you get a bright light, two C123s and a nylon holster. Nice beam with a bright spot and good spill IMHO. Pretty...

    15kw xenon arc lamp

    We have an Imax theater where I work and we got to take a tour of the projection booth on Monday. The technology is amazing and the projector itself weighs two tons! They keep the room at 72 degrees and at about %45-55 humidity to maintain film quality. The best part was getting to hold one...
