American-made should light the way
Our Buy American Mention of the Week!

What is it you look for when you want to purchase a flashlight? One that's American made? How about union made, too? One that is relied upon by the likes of State Troopers, military personnel, and firefighters? How about one with enough power to shoot a beam over 200 feet? All of the above?
If all of the above sounds important to you, then you'll be happy to know that you can get all of these features with the Stinger Elite X1-LED flashlight. And they're available here at the USA Shop for just $49.95.
These American-made, union-made flashlights normally retail for as high as $89.99, and I haven't been able to find them for less than $70.00 online or anywhere else (unless they're purchased in significant or bulk quantities).
They come complete with a Police barrel holster, with the Machinists Union logo (since they are assembled with union labor) and "Buy American" proudly engraved on the flashlight as well.
No one wants a flashlight that is going to corrode easily, is difficult to carry, or simply just isn't rugged enough to withstand anything other than ideal environments for a long period of time.
The Stinger Elite X1-LED flashlight is constructed from rugged, machined aluminum, made with a knurled design, and is anodized both inside and out for improved corrosion resistance.
Its water and shock resistant, too, and even features a recessed pushbutton switch that is self-cleaning.
And you won't easily lose track of your high intensity, 3-watt, 'Made in USA' Cree LED light either, since the commercial grade holster with belt clip and hand grip make it easy to hold on to. And since it weighs only 12 ounces (without the batteries), it's easy to attach it to your belt using the Police barrel holster and not feel weighed down.
This foot-long Stinger Elite X1-LED flashlight takes only three D cell sized batteries to generate its 165 lumens of adjustably focused light.
So if you want a high power, rugged flashlight with all of the above listed features that is lighter to carry than you would expect, you should strongly consider getting one here at the USA Shop. I only have about one dozen left in stock, and once they're gone, they may never be restocked again.
Everyone understands how important it is to help our fellow Americans whose daily job puts them potentially in harm's way every day. So why not go one step further and help the American suppliers that help these American professionals do their jobs?
We should do what we can to keep American producers and suppliers providing for our police, military personnel, and firefighters from American shores - not foreign shores. If we patronize the products of American producers regardless of what they produce, we keep them profitable and make it more likely they can keep producing their goods in America.
So if you're in the market for a professional quality LED flashlight, I would encourage you to check out the American-made Stinger Elite X1-LED flashlight, which you can get for a price that would normally get you significantly less than professional, American-made quality.
