    Added some tacticool to my 870

    Well...I finally got a batch of bits together that I'm happy with and clamped it on my 870 pump. 975 lumen (real output) light, semi-quick release offset mount, and a tail cap with pressure switch. I've just got the pressure switch on there with a cable tie right now until I grab some mounting tape. She's bright as all get out, and I'm loving it ! This one has 5 modes...low, medium, and high, plus strobe and SOS. I've got some on order that are just high and off. If I ever get in a tense zombie defense situation, I want the light ON at full throttle ! The last thing I need to be doing is piddling around with the switch, trying to find "burn out it's retenas" mode. Here's some pics.

    The light isn't on in the 2nd pic...just the reflection from the camera flash......if it was, all you'd see is white.

    No...I got an hour out of it at full throttle (obviously losing some intensity as time went on). They're running 3.7 volt rechargeable lithium ion batteries. Yea..if you were trying to run joe-blow alkaline batteries in these, you'd have to have some pretty deep pockets. It's got one of the same T6 LED's that my big flashlight has.

    My wife thinks I've lost it. I was sitting in the basement with all the lights off, and every 20 seconds or so, the stairway would light up. Mucho-tacticool

    I like the light, where do I get one? And what's it called? Any reviews? Also just an observation would the pressure switch on the pump eliminate that long cord strung out half the length on the gun?

    Yes, but those are the only pressure switches I have right now, so winding all that cord up into a ball might be a little trashy looking....but hey...this hobby is about experimenting as much as anything I guess. LOL. I've spent around 2 grand getting in samples of things...some of which were good...some, not what I really wanted them to be. Now I'm starting to place actual orders for things. I don't even want to say what they are right now because I don't want to get anyone's hopes up and then find out I can't get it, or there's a hang up of some kind. As stuff comes in, I test it and make sure it's good, then, I'll start posting it in the marketplace section. Putting it up on the website and then taking it back down when we're sold out would be a royal pain. As we get more turn over, we'll start stocking stuff regularly and we'll get the website up and flying in a proper fashion. Right now...start small, and work our way up, right ?
