Do You Need a Tactical Flashlight For Your Bug Out Bag?

I’ll admit it. I didn’t get the hype on buying special tactical flashlights for emergency use. My house is stocked full of the big plastic ones with the D cell batteries. After reviewing this Nebo 5160 SE Redline, I am a total convert! Everyone needs to have a tactical flashlight in their Bug Out Bag and as a part of their survival gear. Instead of boring you with all the details in writing, I decided to just bite the bullet and show you how the Nebo 5160 works.  Presenting my first video review here on Simply Preparing:

As I mentioned in the video the folks at Gunner Security were awesome in helping me. They sent over the flashlight for me to check out and have one for a lucky reader here to win. I had no idea that they sold things like flashlights, holsters, knives and lasers. I will be getting my CCW in a few weeks and I plan to check out their holsters a little more seriously then. A little birdie told me pink range bags may be coming soon!

So, would you like to win one of these for your Bug Out Bag? Here is how (This giveaway is closed):

At $34.49 these would make excellent holiday stocking stuffers. I know you love to support small family business as much as I do so consider buying one of these tactical flashlights from Gunner Security for someone you love and want to be safe!
