“Countertop displays, such as this Streamlight unit, allow customers to handle flashlights for size, tactile feel, brightness and functions — which can make all the difference in garnering a sale.”
”In a feature entitled “Blinding,” Guns & Ammo said that “Streamlight is demonstrating the most innovation in this lighting category.” The article went on to review the following Streamlight products, which G&A contributors have proven in the field and “consider necessary for everyday carry and personal defense”.
“The Streamlight Siege AA with Magnetic Baseatt aches to steel surfaces, allowing for hands-free lighting. Like the company’s Siege AA, the updated model features one white C4 LED and two red LEDs to provide five output modes, and a globe cover that provides 360 degrees of soft, even light. With its cover removed, the light can illuminate large areas by attaching it to metal objects with the three magnets in its base. The 5.44”, 9.1-oz lantern uses three AA alkaline batteries. With the cover removed, the white C4 LED delivers a range of 50 to 200 lumens. Run-times for the white LED range from seven hours to 37 hours, and the red LEDs run for as many as 12 days.”
“Streamlight introduces a dozen new handheld and weapon-mounted lights for handguns and long guns at the 2016 SHOT Show.”
On November 7th, 2015, officers of this suburban Philadelphia police force entered a motel room in search of a suspect who had an active arrest warrant. When the officer opened a closet in the room, a suspect fired two shots from a .38 caliber revolver at point blank range. The officer was unable to return fire due to the gun malfunctioning. Further investigation revealed that one of the .38 caliber projectiles struck and lodged in the officer's Streamlight tactical flashlight. The light was mounted under the barrel of the officer's gun. The impact of the projectile is what disabled the gun, but the tactical light prevented serious injury or death to the officer. The officer was able to escape the room unharmed and the suspect was apprehended.
