    Default Jetbeam III-M Saved My LIFE!

    Hello CPF Users, I was recently attacked by two *gang members* driving a vehicle while I was out walking, I had on my strobe light so everyone could see me. They attempted to take my life yelling at me that it was *their hood* The passenger had a piece of rebar, I was lucky they didn't have guns. They came at me until the passenger yelled to hit me with the jeep, I am thankful for having my Jetbeam III-M, I strobed it in the drivers eyes which gave me a short while to run off into the trees to avoid being hit by the jeep which tried to hit me anyway. All I can say is I feel as if I owe my life to Jetbeam, Thank you Jetbeam you saved my life.

    I was lucky enough to have someone hear everything and to have photographic evidence of the driver. Thanks again Jetbeam and CPF users..I only recently purchased this flashlight *few months ago* I just cant say thank you enough. The strobe feature REALLY works. I LOVE YOU JETBEAM!!

    you know we're flashaholics when first we're glad you survived, then ask about the tint.

    I believe its a warmer tint, Its slightly pinkish color on white, on any other color you cant tell. I love the light so much.

    Glad to hear you're okay.

    Was the light in a holster, or clipped to your pants pocket?

    Clipped to pants pocket. Holsters are a bit harder to use unless rigid plastic. Pants pocket works good for me.

    So wait, you were just walking around peacefully and this jeep full of idiots just came by and thought it was a good idea to kill your ass?

    You can't determine whether his story is true or not just based on that. Whenever I'm not using my NDI for something it stays in strobe mode, precisely because if I ever find myself having to use it in self-defence that's what I want to come up when I press the switch.

    Seriously though you said that you had pictures of the driver, lets see em
    I understand the speculation as he is a new member, however, I can totally see how something like this could happen in real life. If he has pics then fine, however, without them it's going to be tough to convince people, even though we should all give benefit of the doubt...
