Personal Protection Tactical Flashlights
According to CNN and the Major Cities Chiefs Association, violent crime is on the rise so far in 2016 in major cities across the US. However, this doesn’t mean that you are safe in smaller or rural towns and cities. We’ve all seen the riots, violence, and even unsuspecting innocents being pulled right out of their cars. Additionally, violent crimes such as homicides, rapes, robberies, assaults and shootings rose 3.1 percent from crime rates in 2015. Those tracking crime statistics assert that 2016 will mark the second year of an increase in violent crimes. Moreover, “U.S. adults say they personally worry ‘a great deal’ about crime and violence” according to a 2016 Gallup poll. Finally, currently a sexual assault occurs every 90 seconds while a robbery happens once every minute in the US.
The question thus arises: What are you doing to protect yourself and your loved ones from violent crimes and unscrupulous attackers? If you’re relying on law enforcement to save you, you likely have erred greatly. Why? The national average response time for police calls is 10 minutes. That’s an eternity when one is being raped, assaulted or robbed. That’s why a personal protection tactical flashlight is a popular tool for self-defense.
You Don’t Have to Have a Gun to Protect Yourself!
You don’t have to live in fear. By the same token, you cannot afford to allow a false sense of bravado to stop a violent crime from happening to you either. So what’s the answer? Personal protection.
But wait, you say, I don’t have a concealed carry permit. Or perhaps you don’t want to possess a firearm at all. And unless you know what you’re doing, a knife is too dangerous to use against an unsavory criminal. Have you considered personal protection tactical flashlights? What are they anyway? Well let’s take a look. You may be shocked to learn how effective these powerful devices are in stopping violent criminal acts.
Personal Protection Tactical Flashlights: Light ’em Up!
Personal protection tactical flashlights are utilized by police departments, military personnel and citizens just like yourself. These powerful self-defense tools can save your life or prevent you or your loved ones, or even an unsuspecting citizen, from being assaulted. Here are reasons why you should not be without a personal protection tactical flashlight.
Reasons Why Personal Protection Tactical Flashlights Work so Well
- Light up suspicious dark areas. If you’re like most people, you have probably found yourself alone and wary of your surroundings at night. Unprotected, you likely prayed or wished yourself through the situation. With a personal protection tactical flashlight you no longer need to find yourself in such a precarious position with no self-defense. A tactical flashlight can illuminate an area encompassing 100 meters (a full football field) thus identifying attackers who use the cover of darkness as their springboard.
- Bright blast to the eyes. If you have ever been pulled over by the police at night for a traffic violation, you’ve experienced the intense light from an officer’s 245 lumen Maglite. You were temporarily disoriented for 3-4 seconds and the officer took command of the situation. Just think of the effect a 500 lumen personal protection tactical flashlight would have on a would-be attacker!
- Perfectly legal. There are no laws against carrying a personal protection tactical flashlight. It may be taken anywhere your heart desires and fits nicely in a hip holster, in a purse, or in dangerous situations, in the palm of your hand. You can even take it on a plane, in federal buildings, and other areas where guns, knives and other weapons are prohibited.
There are numerous personal protection tactical flashlights on the market. Deciding which one to choose can be a frustrating exercise if you’re new to alternative self-defense tools. You should consider that not only will the personal protection tactical flashlight serve as a disorientation tool, but it also comes with dual strike bezel ends to hit your opponent should you choose to disable him. Often times, people who are attacked use the 3-4 second disorientation to make their escape and that’s perfectly fine as well.
Yet another factor you should consider is avoiding cheap imitations from China. After all, the old adage “You get what you pay for” holds true even for personal protection tactical flashlights. Look for a rugged flashlight that will last for years, especially one with an LED bulb. Furthermore, you should also consider a weatherproof flashlight in the event it is raining, dropped in water, or believe it or not, to keep the blood out.
The SureFire E2D LED Defender Ultra Personal Protection Tactical Flashlight
One of the better personal protection tactical flashlights on the market is the SureFire E2D LED Defender Ultra. This highly practical self-defense tool weighs in at 4.2 ounces and fits neatly in the palm of your hand. It has two settings: high (Very high!) and low. The high setting unleashes 500 lumens of intense, blinding light, whereas the low setting delivers five lumens. An average flashlight emits one to two lumens. The SureFire E2D LED Defender Ultra is also weatherproof.
The E2DL Ultra is initiated with a pushbutton tailcap click switch that also serves to select high or low output level. You simply press or click once for a high-intensity 500-lumen white-light beam. The resulting intense beam of light is up to ten times the light required for overpowering an attacker who has been lurking in the dark and whose eyes have adjusted to the night. If you desire to switch from the high output level, simply return to off and then click again within two seconds for a 5-lumen ultra-long runtime low beam. This beam is five times more powerful than an average flashlight and is useful for getting around at night walking your pet or performing household or outdoor chores. Best of all as far as self-defense is concerned, the Defender’s strike bezel allows the user defensive options should s/he be confronted by an attacker. This personal protection tactical flashlight is thus suitable as an everyday-carry light.
The SureFire E2D LED Defender Ultra is powerful. As a personal protection tactical flashlight it is difficult at best to find a better self-defense weapon. No longer do you or your loved ones have to cower in fear when you find yourself in potentially hostile situations day or night.
