Of course you’re smart enough to avoid dangerous areas prone to a riot, right?
But the very nature of social chaos reveals that riots can occur at a moment’s notice and have been known to occur in such common scenarios as:
- Sports team championship loss
- Bad court decision like LA “Rodney King” riots
- Flash mobs like 2011’s Milwaukee State Fair attack
These very events have led to severe injury and even death where there was once a peaceful environment.
If you find yourself caught in a riot, one of the things you want to make sure of is that you don’t draw attention to yourself.
While you may be a crack shot down at the range with the bright lights and nice stationary paper target, you must understand this…
… most shootings will occur in low-light settings and while you (and/or your attacker) are moving.
This is important to know because I’ve been noticing more and more stories in the news of late night home invasions.
In low-light, you have the added challenge of identifying your target and then making a shoot — don’t shoot decision.
(You wouldn’t want to find out that bump in the night was just your teenager sneaking in through the window after losing the house key, right?)
This is where a good quality tactical flashlight comes in handy.
So what type of light do you need?
