How to Use a Tactical Flashlight For Self-Defense


Tactical flashlights are commonly included in guns and other firearms. This is to help the users find target in dim areas. This will then help the user target better as it illuminates the target.
It can be mounted to the firearm you are going to use. Some people also detach it and use it separately. This is also a good way to distract opponents or to temporarily make them lose their vision.
Ordinary people can use this kind of flashlight. It can serve as a self-defense device. You can stash on in your bag and use it during dire circumstances. Here is how you can use it for self-defense:
Step 1: Get a reliable tactical light first. Check how intense its light first. It should be intense enough to temporarily blind and distract opponents. The materials used for it will clue you up on how durable it is. Make sure it is made from durable materials. It is better to choose those that have serrated edges as this provides you an advantage. You can use the edges to slam it on a sensitive area in your attacker's body. This way, you can maximize the full potential of the tactical device.
Step 2: Always bring it with you. It is better to be safe than sorry. Make sure you have a room for this device in your bag. Pick one that is more compact so you can put it in your pocket at all times especially when you are going out alone and you expect to commute in the middle of the night.
Step 3: Do not use the light bulbs if not needed. This is so you can preserve the battery life. Before going out, make sure you check if the battery is still strong enough to supply power. It should be able to emit strong lights before you put it in your bag or pocket. If you are going to place it in your bag, it should be in the side pockets where you would not have to rummage in your things just to get it.
Step 4: If someone suddenly attacks, keep your mind over matter first. Immediately grab the flashlight and fend off the attacker by temporarily blinding him. You can use the butt of the flashlight or the serrated edge to inflict wound to the attacker. Afterward, run while screaming for help or calling 911.
Practice Step 4 routine if you have time so you won't be overcome with panic if you encounter such a situation.
