Tactical Flashlights

Flashlight Reviews

Many of the GHG readers have seen my flashlight reviews (example: my recent SureFire G2X flashlight review) and recognize I take them very seriously.

In an effort to help a broader audience pick a good flashlight, I wrote Introduction to Tactical Flashlights for Self Defense over at the AmmoMan “School of Guns” blog.

If you have the time, I’d really appreciate it if you took a look at that article (it’s not an affiliate link) and left me a little feedback on what you think.

I’ve tried to explain all of the specifications used in flashlight marketing and explained my rationale behind selecting a good quality light. If you think I missed anything or wasn’t quite clear enough, please let me know.

My goal is to serve you. While we may not always agree on a specific gun or tactic, I try to provide the best information I can on the limited budget and time I have.

Also, if you have any thoughts on what people (including me) leave out of flashlight reviews – PLEASE let me know. Just drop a comment below so I can deliver the information you need.

I’ve been rewriting and updating my testing procedures for flashlights and now is the perfect time for me to work your feedback into the criteria.

I really appreciate all of the work you put into your flashlight reviews. All of the YouTubers are just getting them for free and throwing puff pieces up without doing any actual testing.
