    I never said anything about shooting anyone. I haven't had to shoot anyone, hopefully never will.
    If you're in the same profession as I am in NYC you have to carry a gun, you don't have the option not to.

    What's my plan concerning what exactly?

    And I'll tell you what, fella', being old and being able to fight has nothing what-so-ever to do with luck.

    And welcome to Martial Talk. :)

    The closer you are the more the strobe effect bounces back.

    I mostly use it to signal cops and ambulances because it is a unique signal.

    And just use the light on bad guys.

    It is not enough weapon to drop that 150 kilo islander you have for some reason enraged.

    But it is enough weapon to convince him you are trying to stab him.

    For a light intended for tactical or SD use, I'm not wild about the multiple settings, unless they're controlled by a different switch. I want to push the button and have the light come on, at its brightest.

    For a utility light, I like high and low (to save battery), but the flash has no use there.

    Getting your kubotan out and into your hand is a pretty big distraction for something that you can use as a marginal aid for a specific strike. I can also leverage it (pun intended) in grappling, but wouldn't reach for it in the chaos. If I had something in my hand that served, I'd use it, but otherwise, I'm better off not reaching for it - not enough advantage for the compromised second or two.123
