then he should buy a light 200 lumens or under
But he wont because he wants to be an asshole and blind people and get the shit kicked out of him by blind people.
I have a 200 lumen flashlight, and trust me, it's more than enough for covering your form if you shine it at someone. I used it during a night game to light up pretty much half of the field.
(although i think it might be more than 200 lumens since it was actually brighter than everyone else's at that said they had 250 or 300 lumens)
Trust the people that already have these flashlights, 1000 lumens would be enough to blind someone for a good five minutes
I like how I ask for help finding a flashlight and everyone starts debating the ethics. Chill out guys.
it's not fair
not when you want to cause EYE DAMAGE
Fuck off simpleboo
we're advising you that unless you're aiming to actually do serious damage to someone's eyes, you don't need a fucking 1000 lumen flashlight
it's almost as bad as buying a laser and shining it in someone's eyes
seriously, you could blind someone just like in BF3 with 200 lumens just fine
simpleboo you stupid
your inability to shut mouth is my #1 example!!!
Take it from someone who owns a 200 lumen flashlight, you shine someone in the eyes with it up close (10 feet or so) they're going to have a small fuzzy spot in their vision for a few minutes. I know because I've tested it on myself, strobe included. That's why when I go close quarters with my flashlight I'm aiming center mass so I'm not directly pointing it at their eyes.
Using 1000 lumens is just overkill. Your talking about levels that are close to that of construction work lights, and those are too fucking bright to look directly at.
Also an issue with using such high powered lights is it blinds you indirectly. You may shine it towards your enemy, but if you have any walls or cover near you it's going to light that up too. The end result is you kill your natural night vision and have to recover from it, which takes up to a half hour. Hence why you get flashlights with adjustable brightness.
Think of it that way.
Yeah, that makes a lot of sense, or you could get a Surefire with a nice focusable beam if you want overkill. Considering every single person in this thread has stated that being blinded by lights can really fuck you up, you may want to listen, we're not hating on you, we're trying to help you out. I also think you'd be better off upgrading the hell out of your LMG's accuracy setup, because that's 10x more valuable than a blinding light.
Here's my biggest question, why would you blind someone instead of shooting them? I mean blinding does have a suppression effect, but I think I'd rather shoot at the enemies instead. Another point I'd like to make is that the brighter the light you get, the less battery life you'll have, and considering you're running a support weapon I imagine you'll need long battery life to keep the light running all game.
Also, have you considered investing in a high quality laser? A buddy of mine had a fantastic green laser that had more than a half mile of range, and it scared the shit out of players. If you tune/upgrade your hopup and inner barrel correctly, the laser will eliminate the need to spot your bb's in flight with a light.
Oh yeah, which support weapon are you throwing this on anyways?
Red laser can work as well if it's a darker area. Some fields ban green lasers around here unfortunately, but the red lasers are more than enough to make some think twice about running out of cover.
I'm kinda happy my site bans green lasers, somebody there had a 10MW green laser. Why the fuck they thought that was a good idea i'll never know. Second dumbest person I've seen at a site.
In terms of flashlights, just get a streamlight similar M3 style torch. The king arms torch I picked up has a nice throw of light (Kinda narrow with range) advantage is you can whip it off your rails and onto the pistol dead sharpish if needed, plus polycarb lens.
i kind of want
mebe i'll get a matching vest or something
and here I am picking off cocky people with lasers and flashlights as I hide in bushes with my ghillie suit :keke:
I was just reading through the thread and noticed everyone talking about causing eye damage with the flashlight.
Unless the flashlight contains UV (ultraviolet) rays then the intense brightness from these lights should not cause any damage to the eyes. The UV rays are what damage the eyes, such as sunlight, welder torches, tanning beds and things like that.
You still wouldn't want to be temporarily blinded...
I may have found the ultimate secret website for optics. I just found the G36 red dot that you can mount on regular rails, a Belomo PK-A, and a bunch of other ridiculous sights.
Its a ssssecret.
One pro troll right there ^
After the ridiculous conversation we've had as of late concerning this flashlight, I'm certain that Simpleboo is getting the light as he says. I just find the whole thing to have devolved into a black comedy.
your fucking retard
Between work and being sick all week I haven't been to Airsoft in such a long time. I used to go pretty often but once the holidays started I worked like 6 days a week and was usually broke anyway because of Christmas gifts.
I probably won't buy much in the coming months. If they ever release the KWA Kriss or the TM Springfield XD I'll bankrupt myself if I have too.
The most I see is maybe $80 worth of accessories to finish tricking out my Type 89 and that Revolver I wanted to get so many nights ago.
"guys i want a really bright flashlight, like around 100 lumens, can you guys help?"
"hey, thats probably too bright to use safely, you can damage someones eyes. Multiple people have first hand experience with this issue and can tell you that that is not a safe thing to do. 250 lumens is more than enough, as confirmed by some of the most respected and experienced members on the forum."
"NO FUCK YOU I ASKED YOU TO HELP ME FIND A 1000 LUMEN LIGHT IF YOU WONT DO THAT FUCK OFF"
I don't get why you'd want 1000 lumens, its like having 550 fps with .48, it's dangerous and unnecessary. There's no point in hurting someone over a game.
I'd understand if he wanted something bright enough so someone has to squint and can't see his body easily, but he's pushing it too far.
I.. might actually buy that PEQ too, I've been on the fence about getting a PEQ since I don't want to attach too much shit onto my gun, but Ender made the lasers sounds super useful.
Does it come in a version with a red laser?
actually that seems a bit more than what i'd pay for a laser, idk
