    emphasis in red is my own.



    Simple answer, 'they don't.'

    I'm never able to relate to this kind of question; "who needs a car that fast," "why does anyone need a knife like that," or "why does anyone need a titanium pen?"

    The "need" question could obliviously be indiscreetly asked of anything that's humanly attainable but the thing that's most surprising to me, is that from the time we're old enough to form sentences, we're overwhelmed with the familiarity of advertising and marketing. Perhaps I'm too critical in assuming that concept is commonplace. Should a modder/manufacturer like Sky Lumen say, 'this light is as reliable as any commonly produced light available today,' (not an actual quote) shows videos supporting the notion... and then someone asks, "what do I need that for" I don't feel that the question warrants a sincere response. The simple answer is that they don't, but if they want it, they'll know what its capable of.

    Granted, I don't know the context or wording of these emails, or if the inquiries were serious, or if they were even adults or not. Any kids out there, emailing Vinh with questions, get a free pass, in my book!

    Haha! Fun video, Vinh!!

    For reference, a factory loaded, 100gr .327 from a 2" snubby, clocks about 1000-1100fps. From a 16" barrel, about a 1000fps faster with the same load.

    That's Phuong's subbie. She loves that gun! I love shooting .327 too!

    I got you be honest. This light is definitely bulletproof. I think that we all can appreciate the torture test that have been done to prove the heft of this light.

    I really wouldn't bother putting bullets do a brand new light. Keep that light and make some profit. I think that we would all agree on this.

    Few questions please

    This is p60 flashlight? If yes where is the 2 X 21700 version?

    U said it can take 1 X 18650 or 2 X 18650 doesnít that means to use tube inside the light while using 18650s to prevent rattling?

    Will it come with 21700 batteries?

    Will it come with 21700 batteries? Cells are not included.

    Are you also "Nichia" on BLF?

    I highly recommend getting at least 1 spare ORings Pack with your order.
    Please install one of each Extra Water Resistant Oring on both inner ends of the body if you plan to do crazy extended water dipping like me. The standard Oring that is installed on the light is the same as the ones on the body and they are good for normal water resistance and ease of tail cap removal for daily use.
    All SLN are delivered with blue boot default but experiment with the black one if you have weaker finger strength or just improved sensitivity.
    SLN does not deliver with body grip Orings. You need this pack if you want them. They are Matte, Grippy and nearly a buck each. Leave them out if you feel the fins will relieve heat better without them.
    The suspension Oring is not required unless u plan to beat up the light like I did.

    SLN "tune ups" are free forever. Just send it back in and I will get it to optimal specs at just costs of parts and shipping.

    Phuong asked: What is bulletproof? Does it mean tough like a bull?

    Loved that bulletproof video! Iím super highly impressed with the toughness of your light! It passed my expectations with flying colors! And I must say, your a great shot, you have nothing to be embarrassed about. Makes me wanna go to the range much more often now. I donít think I could have hit the light once lol.

    When I shot I just pray that it can handle at least .380 so I can call it "bulletproof". Claiming .22LR as bulletproof will not content most. hahha

    Awesome!!! except maybe zoom in on the dented head where it took a bullet and survived, rather than the large hole going through it LOOOL. Kinda contradicts the phrase if newly interested ones are unaware of the other bullets that the host DID survive haha! Nonetheless, I am thrilled that this light is getting the deserved recognition it should receive!

    I was actually hoping people find the contradiction and protest so I can show them the video ;-)

    Shoot 2075 by a pro first for more YouTube views. Hopefully light is intact so I can do a military vehicle run over.

    Vinh,

    You should try find an M500 firecracker and explode it next to the light. Something like this
