The M60 Mike Test

Light: SureFire 6P with Malkoff M60 Q5-WG dropin

I visited Mike at Madeline's and got him to do his classic flashlight test with the M60 (230+lm). He held it at arms length, aimed at his eyes, lit it off, and let out an, "oh god... that's a good one!" A couple minutes later he was in the back and I heard him say, "uhh I can't read that, I just got flashed in the eyes." It was a mean trick to let him do it with something that powerful, but I couldn't resist.

Cambria power outage

Light: NovaTac EDC-120P

After picking up my Malkoff M60 at the darkened post office (operating by the light of a couple tea candles, and some help from me while I was there), I went up to Tia's house. They were also without power and it was just about sunset. Tia had been making necklaces and I helped out by providing light with my NovaTac for about an hour. I helped them to sort beads, thread them, and search for various things in the darkness. It was plenty for most purposes, but I was a little embarrassed that it was the only light I had with me on the day of a power outage, if I'd had more I could have set them up around the area and not had to direct my one light the whole time.
