This flashlight will literally burn your eyes out – “The Maelstrom S18 is a veritable hand-held spotlight that features 4Sevens’ unique thermal regulation and a blistering high output of 1200 OTF lumens.” And that is a real-true 1200 OTF lumens our of the lens not just from the bulbs (as is the case with many other specs). The Maelstrom is powered by six (6) CR123A batteries with a runtime up to 17.5 hours at the 80 lumens setting and down to .6 hours at the full 1200 lumens settings. There are a bunch of other features and the unit is tank-built but the main feature is the blinding output of this handheld.

Glock Gen4 Recall

If you are affected and somehow have missed this, please note that Glock “is voluntarily exchanging the recoil spring assembly (RSA) on its new Gen4 pistols (with the exception of G26 and G27 models). GLOCK has developed a new design to the recoil spring assemblies on its Gen4 pistols to replace several variations that are functioning in the market today. As part of the company’s commitment to perfection, we are voluntarily exchanging the existing RSA in order to ensure our products perform up to GLOCK’s stringent standards.”

Here is how to exchange your recoil spring assembly.




Picking A Survival Rifle By Caliber

A well-prepared post from Survivalist Boards on picking a survival rifle by caliber.

WTSHTF News Excerpt:

This is where calibers like the 30-30 and the 308 come in. Ammunition is cheap, neither caliber has excessive recoil and ammunition is readily available.

Keep in mind that the ’06 is the largest caliber that most people can shoot accurately. The recoil is the main reason why I do not suggest the ’06 unless you need that much firepower.

As always, our advice is to focus on .22LR, .40S&W, .308 and 12 Gauge.

PRI-D is a super concentrated, complete fuel treatment that improves all diesel fuels and kerosene making them stable for multi-year storage. The “Sta-Bil” product is excellent for short-to-medium term storage of fuels for up to a year or maybe two. But PRI-D allows you to store fuel, especially diesel and kerosene, for up to five (5) years or more. Further, you can use PRI-D to “restore” tainted and aged fuels that were improperly stored. We recommend treating all long term stored fuels with PRI-D (or PRI-G specifically for gasoline).
