Night Ops' Falcata light by Scott Oldham...

In that December/2006 article,


An excerpt from Page 76, Paragraph 4:

The Gladius is also the first on the market to be capable of automatic strobing. Sometimes controversial, the tactic of strobing is well proven to be useful in disorienting a target.


A question, if the tactic of strobing is well proven to be useful, then why is it controversial?


The author did not explain why in that article.

Some people don't believe proof.

Denny, have you recently attended both surefire manufacturing facility and training session?


Does surefire have any flashlight with strobe feature on the market yet?

and if they don't, then do they have a plan for introducing one in the near future?

and if they don't, then is there a reason why?

It seems to me that at least some of surefire's most loyal former clients are "defecting" to Blackhawk.

By the way, what is surefire's view regarding strobe features in the tactical employment of flashlight?

Red,
Yes, I have recently been at SureFire manufacturing areas, and have had attended training.

No, they do not have a flashlight with a strobe out that I'm aware of and I'm not aware if they have plans to make one.

The instructors at the SureFire Instititute believe it is not necessary to build a strobe feature in, preferring to rapidly use the button at the rear of the flashlight.
