    Exciting. Is there a reason why so many? Are you a modder?

    Got this one in Yellow and Green! I absolutely love it except I can't get the batteries here locally.

    Why so many? Addiction mostly, and yes I mod most of them myself. I spend a bit of time on candlepower forums. I am a DIY addict in various forms: audio, cars, flashlights, home improvement, etc..

    Those were just the ones within 10 feet of my bed. The mag85 will actually kill bugs if you shine it on them for a few seconds from within a couple inches.

    Nothing special just my Mag-Lite's I have some much older flashlights but do not particularly feel like hunting them out at the moment.

    I can kill bugs with a Mag-Lite too. If I so disposed it could be used on larger animal and intruders too. Just a matter of force:D.

    So what do you do? Whack your assailant over the head with it? Does it chase down criminals on its own? The world needs to know.... :confused:

    Just posting what it said from their website.

    And actually, the self defense part is, it's a very bright light, and by shining it in your attackers eyes it will temporarily blind them giving you the time to defend yourself, or run like a girl, whichever you choose.

    The crenelated bezel is also quite painful to be struck with.

    Several of my lights have a full power strobe function which is honestly quite disorienting in the dark. There are reports that it is more effective than some other non-lethal weapons used on assailants, particularly those on drugs.

    Anecdotally, the strobe really pisses my wife off.
