Check Yourself: December 2014 Edition

| December 31, 2014 | 2 Comments

At the end of every month I check the optics on my firearms. Last month I started checking my weapon-mounted lights as well — and found that one was dead. Derp!

This month I’ve added my handheld flashlights to my routine.

I encourage you to go check every optic and light in your house, especially on anything you’re carrying on a regular basis.

Total dead optics found: 0/11*

I’m going to Barry Bonds this one because I left an optic on at full brightness after our partner winter shoot.

Total dead weapon mounted lights: 0/4

Total dead handheld lights found: 0/5

Not bad — how’d you do?

      I will replace the RMR batteries and the 300 Blackout battery on my birthday. The others get checked monthly and when I handle them.
