Illumination has become a critically important aspect of preparedness. In its most basic form, flashlights replaced the torch used by cave people to light the way. Now, not only are you lighting the way, you can use them to signal, blind, and even stun subjects. Some are now being built into impact tools! As technology and tactics evolved, so have the available options. Now we talk about lumens, strobe functions, and weapon mounts. The Armor Readiness team have a clear understanding of these uses and tactics.
There are a few schools of thought floating around the web. Some say that the brightness of the light can be too bright, raising the risk of you blinding yourself if the light is shined directly at a white wall, door, or object. The other camp says that the brighter the better, you just need training. Both are true statements..you definitely need to approach high lumen lights as you would any other tactic or tool.
Personally, I have witnessed the effectiveness of using high-lumen lighting, especially with a strobe feature. As a former tactical team leader in Las Vegas’ primary detention center, our teams have successfully been able to walk up to a combative subject and take him into custody using just the strobe feature of the weapon light of a 40mm. This same tactic can be used in your home to blind and disorientate a bad guy while you retreat, advance, or plan your next move.
