>Pentagonlight Molle Light Desert Flashlight

Steven K. Ledin,

The new Pentagonlight Molle Light Desert flashlight has been talked about for a while and has been advertised in gun and outdoor magazines for quite some time. It’s here now. The little bugger fits in a single molle strap on a vest, or just as easily on a belt or pocket. It has an angled head that directs light forward instead of up or down. The spring steel clip can be rotated 360 degrees to position the light in any direction. This superb quality little flashlight has a run time of about 5 hours with a 1/2 watt LED giving

>Lasermax Unimax Laser

Steven K. Ledin,

The new Lasermax Unimax laser is now available, and fits the needs perfectly for many firearm applications. The unit is as small as a matchbox and weighs as much as a .45 ACP cartridge.

>Browning Flashlights

Steven K. Ledin,

Browning flashlights are now orderable from OpticsPlanet. As a hunter and outdoorsman, I know that all Browning products are well thought out and designed by folks that actually use them. All Browning outdoor products are top quality and compare with anything made. Some years ago I was invited to Browning in Morgan, Utah for a week or so for training. I was a Browning Archery Staff Shooter at the time. Everything about the trip was second to none. We built things, shot things, broke things. Learned more about clothing design. Gun cases. Bows. Guns. Everything. I flyfished a bit in …

>Hunting Accessories for All

Steven K. Ledin,

OpticsPlanet has tons of hunting accessories available, from custom designed Surefire flashlights to Browning clothing and rifle slings. Here is one accessory we don’t carry that I thought some of you might get a kick out of. Click on this LINK and watch the 20 second video. I carry a small pocket knife and a bit of string for this procedure and have never been lacking, but some folks need gadgets. GPS units have pretty much replaced compasses, but a compass will always work without satellites and batteries. Dry boxes and targets are available, along with prescription glasses
