5.11 Tactical has become synonymous with great gear that holds up to all kinds of use and abuse and keeps working, and the company's line of flashlights is no exception.

The 5.11 Tactical TMT L3X flashlight has three modes: high, low and instant-on, with the high mode offering 860 lumens and the low mode 50 lumens. Run times are listed as 2.25 hours on high and 29 hours on the low mode, with beam intensities of 205 meters and 48 meters respectively.

The L3X is a little large for EDC, but would make an excellent nightstand or vehicle light. With the handy addition of a tail-end lockout feature, it can be stored without worrying about inadvertent activation, and with the CR123 batteries (the L3X uses three, and batteries are included) it can be stored for a long while.

MSRP: $129.99.

Skills Check: Present Arms

We refer to the draw stroke as the presentation at Gunsite. It’s a better explanation than simply “drawing” the pistol, because it describes the act of presenting the pistol from the holster to the target or threat. In our “basic,” five-day pistol class we expect students to present the pistol and make hits on targets from 3 to 7 yards away in 1.5 seconds. Most students can do this in two or three days of training.

Mental Focus vs. Mental Awareness

Shooting at the very edge of your skills envelope requires tremendous mental focus and well-developed shooting awareness. However, some shooters believe that shooting awareness and mental focus are one in the same. They are not. Using pistol shooting (combat or competition) as an example, what is the difference between the two and how can it help you hone your shooting skills to a razor’s edge?
