The Ultimate Firearms Destination for the Gun Lifestyle

Uncovered: New Products

If it were up to us, everyone in our family would carry a concealed pistol on the daily. But what about your kids who aren’t of legal age yet? The D.A.D. (Defense Alert Device) 2 from TigerLight is marketed to this demographic, as it’s essentially a pepper spray for the Snapchat generation. The Bluetooth-enabled device can send an emergency alert and your GPS location with a push of a button (without releasing the spray) to your contact list and anyone who has the D.A.D. app within a 1-mile radius, as well as prompts a call to 911. It includes a AA battery, inert practice spray, and Saber Red Pepper Spray with 1.33-percent major capsaicinoids. The D.A.D. 2 also has a hand-strap for retention and a multimode 150-lumen CREE LED light on the butt-end.

The EDCL1-T is the updated version of SureFire’s popular EB1 Backup light. This fist-filler packs a two-stage output that comes on at 5 lumens with a light push of the tail cap, cranking up to 500 lumens when the tail cap is fully depressed. The smooth reflector and carefully focused lens creates a floody spotlight beam with the bright center about as wide as a doorway from 10 feet. There’s a wide area of useful spill light around the core of the beam. A large pocket clip adds retention and prevents the light from rolling when placed on its side. It uses a single CR123, running for an hour on high and about 45 hours on low.

Savage / 224 Valkyrie

Mean Gene is always working on something — this time it’s improving the design of his Hot Tamale change purse. The original packed a punch, but the V2 is less sappy-looking and adds more grip in the form of a loop handle that folds over the purse to form a belt loop. The principle is the same; snap the Tamale to your belt where it rides, ready to make change and attracting barely any attention. Its swing-weighted payload of $15 in quarters is a viable option when you’re denied a more potent self-defense tool.
