coolest flashlight on the block.

check this out. you know, when i was a kid, the Man From U.N.C.L.E. was the rage, and they had some really cool toys. of course, my buddy Johnny Z. and i spent every damned dime we could beg, borrow, steal, earn (i had a paper route), or cajole our parents to buy the entire collection of toys. let's see, there was a camera, that turned into a cap gun, and a briefcase that was both a gun and a camera. i don't remember any of the others, but between us, we had all of them, and killed an unimaginable number of bad guys and spys in our little town of Burns Oregon. they were the coolest, and made the more modern Transformer toys seem like, well, toys. OURS fired caps.
so i'm guessing the design team for this little jewel were fans like John and I were.

i'm not sure what i'd do with it, but i want one!

follow THIS LINK to watch the sales pitch.

this must make the gun control weenies sweat in their sleep.

editlooks like i'm not the only one that thinks this is a pretty cool gizmo. the armed liberal over at Winds of Change posted too, and the comments are great. one of his comments has a link to what looks a lot like the toys i talked about at the beginning of this post.

Don't forget the fountain pen with the crystal radio built into it. And the briefcase not only held a toy gun and a camera, but also the other pieces necessary to assemble the gun into a sniper rifle. Not to mention the buttons on the outside that allowed the camera and gun to be activated without opening the briefcase.
