Fourth Of July Fun: Flags, Freedom, Flyers, Flashlights And More

by Pete

With Independence Day in America fast approaching, I’m supposed to be making grandiose proclamations about liberty, individual freedoms and the pursuit of happiness – all of which I wholeheartedly believe in, mind you. However, for those lucky enough to enjoy a few days off for the summer holiday, I thought we could instead focus on pure fun.

With all of the safety caveats in mind, take the next few days and try to enjoy yourselves. Shoot stuff with friends, whittle a pointy stick, read TFB, make big explosions, have a delicious beverage, read TFB and buy stuff on Amazon. Most of all be safe, have fun and celebrate freedom from tyranny.

My standard disclaimer: The below listed products contain affiliate links that help fund TFB operations. If you buy one (or all) of these items, your heart will be filled with immense pride knowing that you are helping to keep the best gun blog on the Internet healthy for years to come. Even though using the links don’t cost you any money, participation is completely optional – we promise not to shun or ridicule you for eternity. No, seriously. We won’t.

SureFire R1 Lawman Rechargeable Flashlights with Variable-Output


Designed for law enforcement officers, the rechargeable R1 Lawman LED flashlight with IntelliBeam technology features a maximum output of 1,000 lumens, and head and tailcap switches that are user Programmable. The Lawman’s precision micro-textured reflector produces a smooth, wide beam with extensive reach and generous peripheral illumination, perfect for a broad range of police and security applications including temporarily blinding opponents. This innovative, automatically adjusting version of the R1 Lawman takes full advantage of the variable-output capability of one of SureFire brightest and most popular LED flashlights. It features SureFire proprietary IntelliBeam technology – an intelligent sensor and microprocessor-based system – that continuously evaluates your environment and seamlessly adjusts light output, from 15 to up to 1,000 lumens, based on the scope of your surroundings. The Lawman’s tactical tailcap switch activates the 1,000-lumen output – press for momentary-on, twist for constant-on. If programmed by the user to do so, pressing the tailcap switch three times rapidly will activate the high-intensity strobe mode. A separate click-type head switch lets you access this auto-adjusting mode, which delivers just the right amount of light output. Charging of the Li-ion rechargeable battery is accomplished via the integral charging Port on the side of the Lawman’s body – no need to remove the battery or place the light in a separate charging cradle. Both wall (AC) charger with international adapters and car (DC) charger are included. Constructed from tough aerospace aluminum that is mil-spec hard anodized for extreme durability, the Lawman is o-ring and gasket sealed to keep out moisture, dirt, and dust.
