    You are correct that strobe can be de-activated in the Streamlights. I do that on all of mine.

    I won’t say that one “must” have a gun, light, or other piece of equipment set up a certain way,...

    A holster designed for the slimmer TLR-7 is going to have less access to the trigger compared to one designed for the side-by-side battery of the TLR-1/X300 type lights. I’m guessing that’s why...

    I didn’t even talk to them because I refuse to talk to the guy who was wearing the 7TS optic holster. I don’t care for a holster manufacturer rep arguing with me in an ignorant yet condescending way...

    I think the Flex system offers some optimism for a future handgun pressure switch, which would be a great thing especially if it could have commonality with the TLR-7/8A lights. As a switching...

    As to the Romeo 1 Pro, I don’t want to say too much right now officially except it passed testing where others did not. Since there is more than one department involved I don’t...

    From the perspective of going to SHOT for fun, it’s neat to be able to see the “new” things and at least get hands on things I’m considering purchasing. At this point though it’s almost more fun to...
