It was around 2:00 a.m., on a Saturday night, when I was awakened by loud bangs in the front of my property. I got up and had a look through the window and saw two thugs kicking at my fence. I got dressed and very cautiously I went out front with my E2DL Defender® in hand. Both of the men had already moved on and were about 30 meters down the road. I inspected the fence with the 5-lumen low beam, checking for any damage. At that stage, the two men turned and saw me. With fists clenched, they starting walking toward me with haste. When they were approximately 20 meters away, I pointed the E2DL Defender straight at them and clicked on the 200-lumen high beam, lighting them both up. They stopped in their tracks and shielded their eyes. I did not say a word and didn't take the beam off of them as they stood there looking rather confused for about 10 seconds, wondering whether they should continue or scram. Finally, one of them said to the other, "It's like looking at the sun," and the other one muttered something back. Then they both turned and walked off in the opposite direction. When you cannot identify someone or see what weapons they may or may not have, it leaves some serious doubt in the mind of a would-be assailant. I would say that's what happened in this case.
