The perfect light for your gun cleaning kit. But it can come in handy checking your muzzle for debris in the field. Or even dressing game in a pinch.
The role of a pen light. Pen lights fill a specific role - typically designed to fit in with tools and writing implements so they'll conveniently be where you need them at the right time. The MicroBlast is designed as a general purpose light that you can always rely on in a pinch, whether the power's gone out, you've dropped something in a dark, hard to reach spot, or you're looking for a dropped lug nut while changing a tire at 3:00 AM. Add to the package a handy bore light adapter, and you may want to just leave the MicroBlast at your cleaning bench.
