Bradshaw Blades Giveaway

Back in September when I was running the big contest one of my  winners was  Casey Bradshaw of Bradshaw Blades.  He wrote me and told me about his knives and asked If I wanted to give one away/ test it. My answer is always Yes to playing with gear and giving it away. I have been busy beating on his knife and am finally ready to give my thoughts on the quality and give it away.

Streamlight PT 2L Review

Today I have a review of my favorite EDC flashlight. It is the Streamlight PT 2L. The PT 2L is a small tactical flashlight weighing in at only 2.8 oz and 4.68 inches in length. For its small size it puts out an incredible 180 lumens. The PT 2L runs off of two CR123A Lithium batteries. It has three modes: Hi (180 Lumens for 2.5 hours) Low (50 lumens for 50 hours) and a strobe mode  (up to  6 hours). It is waterproof to 1 meter for thirty minutes.
