Check Your Lights and Optics: September 2015 Edition

| October 1, 2015 | 5 Comments

September’s “Check Your Lights and Optics” results:

Total dead optics found: 0/11

Total dead weapon mounted lights: 0/4

Total dead handheld lights found: 0/5

Total dead safe lights found: 0/3


Two big changes this month:

  1. I changed out the lights on our AR15s from the capable but weaker NEBO lights to the 1000 lumen NiteCore P12 (2015 edition). I was hoping to test these during night training this year, but due to reschedules I wasn’t able to attend.

    I’ll do a first impressions / tabletop review of the NiteCore P12 and the mount in a future post.

  2. The other change was that I started checking lights used in my safe. I added a motion activated LED light from IKEA this month. While I didn’t expect it to be dead, I wanted to get in the habit of checking it with my other lights.

    And with a hurricane bearing down on us, we’ll be doing that big time tomorrow.

      Stay safe out there. I miss a lot of the stuff about the South, but tropical storms and hurricanes aren’t on the list. Is all the bread and milk sold out? 😉

        We went to the grocery store today just to do the weekly gig. I think with the direction shift to the East by 60 miles, people calmed down. There was plenty of bread and milk!

    What are you using for a mount on the P-12?

    Thanks for the reminder to swap out batteries. This inspired me to go through my lights and optics and installed fresh batteries.
