Good evening everyone and thanks for joining us here for a new Friday Night Lights at TFB. In the weeks since our last edition we’ve lined up some new gear to review for the upcoming summer months. Today we start with the latest offerings from Inforce Weaponlights and give you a basic overview of their capabilities and specifications. But I’d also like to hear from you – tell me about your weaponlight experiences. I’d like to know why you decided to change over from one manufacturer to another or why are you loyal to one brand.
Our main man on YouTube, James Reeves, is headed up into the Alaskan wilderness with nothing more than a sharp stick and a Salmon costume. Actually, besides a 10mm GLOCK, James will be packing some lights from Surefire. With any luck we will get a really good look from inside the GI tract of an apex predator.
And fresh in from the Big Brown Truck is a couple of lights from the good people at Streamlight. Looking forward to taking a look at their new offerings, even after the Taran Tactical Innovations G17L Combat Master heads home.
And speaking of having new lights shipped to your door, Inforce has generously allowed me to give away one of their lights. Head on over to our Instagram account for more information on how to participate. A small caveat, the winner will be requested to provided me a short writeup of their experience after using the light for a few weeks. I’ll include it in an episode of Friday Night Lights.
Some house cleaning items for the illumination for here at TFB:
1) I still owe you Part Two of the Pulsar Helion XP50 review. Thanks for your patience.
2) A couple weeks ago we ran a series about the basics of lumens and candela that inadvertently contained some misinformation. We are working on a follow up article to correct our mistakes that will be reviewed by some industry engineers prior to publishing. Being the managing editor at TFB, the responsibility to publish accurate information falls squarely on my shoulders. My apologies for any confusion.
