    I was digging through my Big-Box-O-Gunparts after work today and found this, I just had to share.
    From around 1987/88 :rofl:

    Nice! Imagine being able to light up a perp with eight whole lumens! That bulb is probably good for half a magazine too. :rofl:

    I got that mounting plate out of Brigade Quartermaster or US Calvary, I wish I still had that catalog, the picture showed the MiniMag attached to the mount with a hose clamp :p

    Oh, I haven't used that thing in 20 years but it did work. I can't remember how many rounds I fired with it on but I never blew a bulb. But I may have to try it again just for the heck of it.

    *grins* Probably pretty well, if memory serves - only because of the design of the flashlight. The bulb is reasonably well secured and the batteries aren't slamming like a piston into it.

    Hell, I remember when we were "high speed" when we attached those minimags to our M16A1s with electrical tape. Real weapons lights didn't come around for another decade or so.

    Yeah but you've lived man. I basically did nothing from 18 to 23. Wasted years :(

    I didn't accomplish anything until 22. I dropped out of college once, and managed to go to school for 3 years and can only use one and a half of them towards my current major. I drank and partied and was an all around frat boy loser. The only worthwhile thing that came out of 18-22 for me was that I was in the Army reserve. :( I'm still struggling to recover from wasting my life away during those years.
