You do not know me at all yet I have been written about in law enforcement mags and in the law books.
I'll submit, that by word count alone in this thread, you're knocking on at least half a dozen magazine articles, and several footnotes in "law books"
I'd also love to see some links/bibliography on those.
I simply don't understand why anyone would downplay/poo poo the carry of useful tools. Flashlights and spare mags are friggin' gimmies...
Go forth, and be educated. (even if you're "64 yrs of age and set in my ways")
