    I had no idea flashlights had gotten so powerful (bright.)
    I work as a security guard (unarmed) we are not allowed to carry weapons.
    I just bought a 200 lumen flashlight to carry at work. I was impressed with how bright it is.
    I am about Bob’s age (Bob Maine) and I guess I had somehow missed this revolution in flashlight technology. Thanks for cluing me in.
