  I recently got the chance to do a review for a Tactical Flashlight. Boy am I glad I said yes. (I was given the flashlight, at no cost, but I am not otherwise being compensated for my opinion) The Principal opened the box, turned it on and immediately said "OH COOL." If you get an OH COOL then you know it's a good product. What we liked about the Survival Hax Tactical Flashlight: It's…

Enjoying the Christmas Season with your Teenager

We have two teenagers in the & 17 We, as a family, have a few traditions. In all honesty, they were when we had younger kids and are getting harder to talk the kids into as the they get older.

That said,…
