When You Can't Pack Heat

... Pack Light.

On a very windy night, the power went out at the end of tonight's class and I was rather dismayed that in the whole class of budding film makers, I was the only one who had a flashlight handy. I saw a whole bunch of cellphones open up, but not another flashlight. You'd think that all these students taking a night class, especially the more vulnerable female students, would carry a small flashlight, just in case the normally well-lit parking lot became less so.

Well, sure, the lights came back on before we'd ventured very far into the parking lot... but what if it hadn't?

    Why should they carry a flashlight (or any other safety or personal protection device)? The campus cops are there to protect them, right? That's what they've been told.

    Pack heat and light.

    I want a Traveler tech 9 laser pistol.

    Love the surefire flashlights, but they sure do suck through batteries

    Got a nice Surefire E2L Outdoorsman, took to a hockey game down town, see it is a victim zone, and they do the whole wanding and pat-down thing.

    Felt nice to have something that I could at least blind the guy as I run like a scared chicken

    The new LED lights put out the same amount of light and use less power.
