Cool Stuff – Day 38

I haven’t been home long enough to really get any work done. Mostly unpacked, washed clothes, cleaned my office and readied guns for testing. When I get home next week I’ll be test firing the FNX-40, Mossberg’s 835 Turkey / Deer Combo and embarking on a handgun laser test & evaluation exercise.

In the meantime, I do have some cool gadgets to tell you about.

SUREFIRE Saint Minimus


This is a unique headlamp that runs on a single 123A battery. The LED beam is wide and adjustable from 0 to 100 lumens. It is also submersible to 3 feet for up to thirty minutes and has a built in SOS beacon.
