Brite-Strike Tactical Illumination Products, Inc. (BSTI.PK) Sheds Light on the Market

Monday, October 13th, 2008

For some time, the Kingston, Massachusetts Company Brite-Strike Tactical Illumination Products has been at the cutting-edge of safety by developing flashlights and protection devices that give consumers piece of mind. Three months ago, the young company took a major step towards advancing their future when they went public and people have responded by taking notice of Brite-Strike as it expands and continues to make noise on Wall Street.

The company is now traded on the Pink Sheets under the symbol “BSTI”. Brite-Strike is armed with 20 million shares outstanding after it completed a reverse merger with Global One Holdings, a Miami company that has been inactive since 2004.

John Lennon, vice president of finance with Brite-Strike, said the company hopes for an initial capitalization of around $1 million. Lennon said the company chose to go public via a reverse merger – instead of seeking an initial public offering – to cut down on the costs and time required for an IPO.

One of the company’s premier products is the “Lightning Strike”, which is a high-powered flashlight designed to help protect women and college students from attacks. “Lightning Strike” has been a screaming success and has given Brite-Strike national attention and allowed the young company to become a major player in the burgeoning market for personal self-defense systems. “Lighting Strike” has allowed Brite-Strike to strike a blow into the tactical lighting industry which has ballooned into a $2 Billion market.

Brite-Strike Tactical Illumination, Inc. (BSTI.PK) Fills Gap in Growing Self-Defense Market

Wednesday, October 8th, 2008

Brite-Strike Tactical Illumination (BSTI.PK), maker of high-intensity light products for government and self-defense use, is in an enviable position. Their product line has managed to successfully address a variety of problems that limit their competitors.

Brite-Strike, based in Massachusetts, produces a unique set of tactical LED light products which are being used by professionals and consumers to protect themselves and gain the upper hand against would-be attackers. Brite-Strike’s primary product is a hand-held flashlight that uses the latest Luxeon™ LED and EMP chip technology to generate an output 15 times brighter than any other hand-held light in the world. The consumer version is less powerful, and less expensive, than that used by professionals, but both configurations have a number of advantages over other self-defense products.

First of all, they are easier and safer to use, and are therefore less restricted. Tasers are illegal for civilian use, while pepper spray and mace both require firearms ID. Though proven effective, the Brite-Strike product is non-contact and non-lethal. You don’t need any kind of permit or specialized training. The light is so intense that it immediately disorients any predator. Along with the light, consumers get an ear-splitting alarm that pulsates at 110-130 decibels for a two-pronged defense. The company’s goal for consumers is to provide critical time to get away, and all versions are designed to be easy to use with one hand, especially important for law enforcement officers holding a gun.

Brite-Strike (www.Brite-Strike.com) was founded by two Massachusetts police officers looking for an easier-to-handle and brighter hand-held light for use in police work. Today, the professional version is being used by the FBI, DEA, and US marshalls, as well as police, and the consumer market has even greater potential. The company’s light products can be purchased from the company’s website, and are also being offered at retail giants like Lowes.com and BJs Club stores, as well as through catalogues.

Brite-Strike Tactical Illumination Products, Inc. (BSTI.PK) Awarded Solar Product Patent

Monday, October 6th, 2008

Today, before the bell, Brite-Strike Tactical Illumination Products announced that the company and its president have received US Patent No. 7,350,692, for a Solar Powered Mailbox/Driveway Lamp. The first product based on this concept is anticipated to be commercially available next year and will be the first Brite-Strike device to utilize LED lighting powered by small solar panels.

Glenn Bushee, President of Brite-Strike, stated, “This product will be our first entry that marries the energy efficiency of LED light with the portability of solar. The technology we developed for our revolutionary tactical flashlights has direct applications for many lighting applications, as we can produce a light far brighter than those currently available in the marketplace. LED lights only use 5% of the equivalent energy of incandescent lights, with almost no heat, so developing products utilizing this technology can make major inroads in cutting energy consumption in this country.

“Our first product will be of the highest quality, and will function as a driveway lamp with mailbox light, address number lights, and an optional motion-activated light with camera-all powered by solar, with no external wiring required. It will offer incredible value for the consumer. We have other more significant products which we are working on, which will be announced in the weeks to come,” continued Mr. Bushee.

A Hero Leads the Way at Brite-Strike Technologies, Inc. (BSTI. PK)

Friday, October 3rd, 2008

In the business world, people sometimes get caught up in the chase for the almighty dollar. The public needs to focus on their future, the future of their family and their own well-being. Money is critical. In our dash for cash, we often lose sight of heroes; who they are and who should we aspire to be like. Recently, one man has become a leader in the business world who should be a hero to us all. That man is Glenn Bushee.

Bushee is the Founder and President of Brite-Strike Technologies. For those of you who are penny-stock savvy, you probably know that Brite-Strike is an up-and-coming company. The company has gained national recognition for the creation of the Tactical Blue Dot Patrol light, which is used to help protect law enforcement officers, and the creation of Lightning Strike, which is a personal protection device specifically designed to provide safety to private citizens. This much you probably know about Glenn Bushee, but there are things you may not know.

Bushee is a 28-year veteran police officer in Kingston, Massachusetts. Every day he would watch and protect citizens, but he knew there was more that was needed to provide peace of mind to potential victims. Bushee took his experience and self-funded Brite-Strike as a way to give back to the world.

At this point, Bushee has more than 15 technology patents to his name, and this great man has taken his experience as a police officer and a Massachusetts Police Academy instructor to bring safety to the world. The company he completely self-funded has grown into a global market and is now known throughout the U.S.

When one takes a step back and looks at Glenn Bushee, they should realize that this man works every day to physically protect citizens in his job as a police officer and also in his business endeavors. He has made the world a safer place.

Sadly, we live in a world where police officers are overlooked and business leaders are revered. Glenn Bushee is both a police officer and a brilliant business mind. He is the type of man you can respect from every walk of life, and with his leadership of Brite-Strike, there is no telling how far this company will expand.

Brite-Strike Tactical Illumination Products, Inc. (BSTI.PK) Strikes Again

Monday, September 29th, 2008

The Massachusetts-based Brite Strike has struck another blow in the war on danger. Brite Strike, which is in the business of bringing safety to police officers and private citizens, offers an array of safety products that help everyday citizens protect themselves from unlawful attacks.

One of the company’s premier products is the “Lightning Strike”, a high-powered flashlight designed to help protect women and college students from attacks. “Lightning Strike” has been a major success, giving Brite Strike national attention and allowing the young company to become a major player in the burgeoning market for personal self-defense systems.

These successes have not slowed Brite Strike’s expansion efforts. Recently, Bright Strike made inroads into the multi-billion-dollar construction industry and expects to compete with such powers as Surefire and Maglite.

While Bright Strike seems to be growing at the speed of light, the tactical lighting industry has ballooned into a $2-billion market. Bright Strike’s tactical Blue-Dot Series was specifically designed for use by police officers, but has also had a profound effect on other law enforcement markets such as the FBI, CIA, DEA, and, of course, the US military.

Recently, Bright-Strike received its first major order from BJ’s Club Stores in the US and is anticipating a follow-up order in the near future. Other major retailers, such as Brookstone, Herringtons, Frontgate, and Sky Mall Catalogues, are also featuring Bright Strike products.

The company is certainly one to keep an eye on; the future is bright at Bright-Strike.

Flaherty Special Report Features Brite-Strike Tactical Illumination Products, Inc. (BSTI.PK)

Wednesday, September 24th, 2008

This morning before the bell, Flaherty Financial News announced that an updated “Flaherty Special Report” on Brite-Strike Tactical Illumination Products, Inc. was released yesterday. The stock of the company has declined during recent stock market disturbance, making the current stock price an even bigger bargain now that the company has a total market valuation of only $3.4 million, according to the news release.

Brite-Strike was co-founded by two veteran police officers who have dedicated their efforts to designing products with features officers desire. However, their cutting-edge products are not just for the professionals, but also for everyday citizens – specifically women, who suffer nearly one million assaults each year. Unlike other self defense products that can result in criminal charges, these extremely bright lights are perfectly legal.

Not only are these two entrepreneurs the pioneers of bringing a new breed of tactical flashlight to the self defense market place, but they are also starting “Flash, Bash and Dash!” classes to teach self defense using Brite-Strike’s lights to impede an assault. The company has also assisted with initiating a new non-profit unit called “Stop AOW”, which is committed to stopping assaults on women. Future plans include introducing a new product development company focused on solar and LED technology.

Brite-Strike Technologies, Inc. (BSTI.PK) is Drawing More Customers through Major Retailers

Monday, September 22nd, 2008

Brite-Strike Technologies, Inc. (OTC: BSTI), makers of technologically superior flashlights, previously relied mainly on word-of-mouth, its website and several high-end catalogs to publicize its products. More recently, a major media advertising campaign is attracting customers and paying off in increased sales.

With the use of inviting price points, community involvement, and a niche focus campaign directed at individuals seeking added security (i.e., women, volunteer workers, students and seniors), Brite-Strike’s line of consumer-centric personal protection products are quickly gaining a retail presence among nationally recognized retail stores. The company’s primary distribution channels continue to be through their attendance at police and law enforcement trade shows held throughout the United States and Europe.

During 2008, the company entered into a number of agreements in order to expand their distribution channels. The first major agreement came with Brite-Strike shipping 3,600 Lighting Strike protection systems to BJ’s Wholesale club in August, with discussions still ongoing in regards to a follow-up order of 10,000 Lighting Strike systems for later this year.

Brite-Strike also entered into an agreement with Lowes Home Improvement (NYSE: LOW) to sell Brite-Strike’s new Lightning Strike™ product online at www.lowes.com. As a fortune 500 company, Lowes recorded sales of $48.3 billion in 2007 alone, and serves approximately 14 million customers a week at more than 1,550 home improvement store locations in the United States and Canada.

The popularity and marketing attractiveness of high-powered LED flashlights, combined with their self-defense functionality, has created a substantial market opportunity for the company across law enforcement, military and consumer sectors. In November 2007, Brite-Strike launched a series of commercials which resulted in high demand for their tactical illumination products. The company generated $260,000 in revenue last year and is targeting $1.5 million to $3 million in 2008.

The agreements with Lowes and BJ’s signify Brite-Strike’s commitment to improving their exposure and producing greater growth for their company. With these agreements, Brite-Strike believes that numerous other major retailers will look to enter into product distribution agreements as well. Brite-Strike intends on targeting new channels such as Costco Wholesale, Dick’s, and Target over the next 24 months.

Brite Strike Tactical Illumination Products, Inc. (BSTI.PK) – The Next TASR?

Thursday, September 18th, 2008

Brite-Strike Tactical Illumination (BSTI.PK) is beginning to look like the next big success story in the rapidly growing self-defense and law enforcement technology market. The Massachusetts-based company, founded by two police officers to create world-class tactical LED flashlights, is rapidly expanding into what is estimated to be the $2 billion market of tactical lighting.

In spite of their short history, sales have already taken off through high-end stores and catalogues, and now they’ve gotten the go-ahead from retail giants Lowes.com and BJs Club stores. As if that weren’t enough, Brite-Strike is starting to get major orders from Europe, and feels they’ll now have to open a UK office as early as this fall.

Brite-Strike’s high-tech illumination products are specifically designed for use by police officers as well as the FBI, CIA, DEA, and the U.S. military, all huge markets in themselves. But the personal self-defense market, which Brite-Strike addresses with a separate line, is virtually unlimited. One of the strongest aspects of all of their product lines is that they don’t face the potential controversy and legal risks inherent in many other self-defense-related products.

Brite-Strike products are a world apart from typical illumination devices. The company’s strong relationship with global electronics giant Philips affords them the highest technological standards, such as the latest Luxeon LED and EMP chip technology, making their products a full 15 times brighter than any other handheld light in the world. Such light intensity puts the user in control of the situation by not only providing unprecedented illumination of any scene, but by immediately disorienting those on the receiving end.

In addition to a variety of handheld units, which are also designed to be used as physical defense weapons if necessary, Brite-Strike makes a totally unique line of high-intensity light balls that are rolled or otherwise used to completely distract and disorient would-be attackers.

For investors, the appeal of this new company and stock are obvious. Think TASR, a stock you could have had for 35¢ in early 2003 . . . a stock you could have sold for between $25 and $30 in late 2004. Or think MACE, a stock that sky-rocketed from around $1 in late 1998 to over $25 in early 1999.

BSTI closed Wednesday at 12¢. Don’t say we didn’t tell you.

Bright Strike Tactical Illumination Products Inc. (BSTI.PK) Shines Bright

Wednesday, September 17th, 2008

Protection is something no one can put a price on. With everything our society has had to endure, many people feel they have nowhere to turn to in a time of need. While people scramble to find a way to protect themselves in this ever changing world, one company has answered the call. That company is Brite-Strike.

With its initial commercial launch in November of 2007, the Massachusetts-based company has taken the world by storm by creating products that allow people to protect themselves.

One of the premier products Brite-Strike has developed is called “Lightning Strike.” Lightning Strike is a state-of-the-art flashlight that includes a small, high-intensity flashing ‘strobe’ with a key chain-sized alarm that delivers a throbbing sound that momentarily distracts and disorients an attacker. Lightning Strike was designed to be small enough to be clipped to a woman’s handbag or a student’s backpack and offer an easy-to-deploy self defense weapon to protect individuals in a high risk situation.

Brite-Strike was founded by Glenn Bushee and Jon Neal, both successful and decorated police officers. These two gentlemen founded the company as a way to give back to society and help protect citizens in our ever-changing world.

When asked what effect “Lightning Strike” has had on society, Brite-Strike spokesperson Jessica Darrican said, “The biggest effect has been safety and confidence amongst our customers. Whether it be on a college campus or people coming and going from the workplace, Lightning Strike has provided all a great deal of safety and confidence.”

Statistics don’t lie. In 2005, an estimated 417,122 robbery offenses were reported in the United States. An estimated 93,934 forcible rapes were also reported to law enforcement, and there is no way to detect how many heinous crimes were never reported. Lightning Strike is legal in all 50 states and provides a way for people to take safety into their own hands.

Bright Strike Tactical Illumination Products Inc. (BSTI.PK) Recently Featured in USA Today

Monday, September 15th, 2008

Bright Strike Tactical Illumination Products Incorporated, a maker of tactical flash lights and personal protection systems, was recently featured in a full-page USA Today advertisement. Bright Strike, founded by two former police officers, recently introduced the Tactical Blue Dot Series of protective flashlights, and those flashlights are already being used by private citizens and law enforcement agencies such as the CIA and FBI.

The Massachusetts-based company’s flashlights feature Light-Emitting Diode technology (LED) that creates a flawless, bright light that can be used to disorient an attacker. Bright Strike has partnered with Philips Lumileds, the world’s leading maker of LEDs, to produce both the Tactical Blue Dot and Protector Series of flashlights. The Tactical Blue Dot Series has a potential market of 666,000 police officers across the U.S.

Bright Strike started making tactical flashlights that were designed and created by police officers for police officers in the hopes of providing better protection and superior light for officers in the field. However, the company is carving out a niche for itself by marketing its products to women. In the U.S. alone, 900,000 women were attacked at night last year.

The Protector Series emits an ear-piercing personal alarm along with a high-intensity flashing strobe light to deter the approach of potential attackers. The system was specifically designed for women, senior citizens, students and others wanting an easy-to-use personal protection system. The company said earlier this year, Lowe’s, the No. 2 U.S. home improvement retailer, will begin selling Bright Strike products.

Brite-Strike Technologies, Inc. (BSTI.PK) Gives Law Enforcement Agencies Non-Lethal Options

Tuesday, September 9th, 2008

With an estimated 800,000 full-time law enforcement officers employed in the United States, according to the most recent survey by the U.S. Department of Justice, these officers usually carry non-lethal weapons such as a flashlight, baton, and pepper spray. It is crucial that these brave law enforcement officers are equipped with the best and most advanced tactical products available. Brite-Strike Technologies, Inc. is a relatively new tactical weaponry company developing advanced self-protection products for not only police officers, but government agencies, the military, and citizens.

Brite-Strike’s Tactical Blue Dot Series incorporates all the feature that a patrol officer needs to fulfill his/her needs. Based on Phillip’s LUXEON technology, the Tactical Blue Dot Series generates 10 to 15 times more lumens (a measurement of light) compared to the standard household flashlight. Designed as a flashlight initially, the Blue Dot Series has the ability to temporarily blind or disorient a subject, which gives the officer a much needed element of safety. The light can also be dropped to a low setting and used as a flashlight to provide a flood effect.

The company also sells Brite-Strike Tactical Balls® RID, which are 1.38 inch, high-impact plastic balls that provide rolling illumination from two white LED’s. These economical, reusable and user-friendly balls are sold in packs of three starting at $40.00 and serve their primary purpose as a distraction device, since they are designed to stop with the light side up when tossed into a room. Compared to flash-bangs or smoke grenades, Brite-Strike’s Tactical Balls® carry virtually zero liability and are environmentally friendly.

All branches of the United States Armed Forces, the FBI, DEA, and other government agencies around the world are current users of the company’s product line. The array of products offered by Brite-Strike gives various agencies the ability to improve on their tactical weapons and gives them multiple options for future needs. There is also a growing interest in Europe and Japan, where firearms are less pervasive compared to non-lethal weapons, which are in widespread use.

Brite-Strike Technologies, Inc. (BSTI.PK) Providing State-of-the-Art Tactical Weapons

Monday, September 8th, 2008

Brite-Strike Technologies, Inc. (OTC: BSTI) is a developer of advanced, high-intensity tactical LED (light-emitting diode) flashlights and personal protection products. The company was founded by two Massachusetts police officers, Glenn Bushee and Jon Neal, with the goal of providing police officers, military personnel and citizens with innovative and practical self-defense tactical products.

As the company grew, Brite-Strike reached a technology agreement with Phillips Lumileds in Malaysia to become the manufacturer of Brite-Strike® tactical lights, which consist of the patented LUXEON® LED’s and contain the latest EMP chip technology. Their Tactical Blue-Dot ™ Series are specifically made for government agencies, the military, SWAT teams, and other law enforcement agencies. The flashlights, made of milled aircraft aluminum, are significantly lighter and easier to handle. They have a unique three-sided body for an ergonomic grip, with a front “Tri-Strike crown” and rear “Tri-Strike crown” for maximum impact to pressure points and maximum weapon retention techniques.

Compared to a regular flashlight, the Brite-Strike beam is a brilliant white light with a wider spread, producing a flood effect. This allows a police officer to scan the entire field of a vehicle on a stop, illuminating the area so that they can spot weapons, drugs, or other potentially dangerous objects. The white light also has the ability to temporarily blind and disorient a subject during a hostile situation. With a quick click of the end cap switch, the light switches to a low setting for use as a normal flashlight. The end cap switch is flush, preventing accidental power switches from on to off.

Brite-Strike® currently sells their products through the Internet, international trade shows, catalogs and major retailer both on-and off-line. The company also sells to specialty law enforcement distributors and dealers. As of today, Brite-Strike has secured distribution agreements with BJ’s Wholesale Club, Frontgate, Herrington’s, Amazon.com, Lowes.com, and many others within their pipeline. The company plans to open a sales office across the pond in London, and recently received their first European order to create a worldwide presence.

The company’s co-founder, police officer Glenn Bushee, is pleased to report that sales are increasing on different avenues, “Our Web site sales have probably tripled” he stated. The increase in sales can be attributed to the ad blitz via cable TV and a national newspaper began in August.

A bright spot for the company is the new found success with their new Tactical Balls products. The product consists of three illuminated spheres that can be tossed to distract targets of police or military personnel. Customers such as the Coast Guard and SWAT teams see it as an alternative to the “flash-bang” grenades that produce multiple problems in explosive situations such as meth labs or oil tankers.

Brite-Strike is currently seeking out additional uses for the Tactical Balls, “We’re actually looking into making a gas-powered launcher that can launch these things to a second or third story,” commented Officer Bushee.

Brite-Strike Technologies, Inc. (OTC: BSTI) is a tactical safety company that provides police officers and citizens with innovative and effective tactical weapons to insure their safety.

Brite-Strike Technologies, Inc. (BSTI.PK) Product Recommended by National Tactical Officers Association (NTOA)

Wednesday, September 3rd, 2008

Brite-Strike Technologies, Inc. announced today that their Tactical Blue Dot two cell momentary/high model (BD RL198 MH 2C) has been designated as “Member Tested & Recommended” by the National Tactical Officers Association (NTOA). The tactical flashlight was given a score of 4.62 out of a possible 5.00 points. The recommendation can be viewed on NTOA’s online database and the review will be published in an upcoming issue of “The Tactical Edge” journal.

NTOA is known as the premier organization for SWAT/tactical teams and their support personnel. They offer instructor development, training, tactical data collection, equipment surveys and program reviews.

Brite-Strike® Tactical Blue Dot lights emit brilliant, flawless white light rated up to 198 lumens using only the highest quality LUXEON® Rebel LEDs. The company’s proprietary power management system is more efficient, allowing for longer run times than comparable products from the competition. The flashlight is made from a single billet of 7075-T6 aluminum; the same material used for M16 receivers, and is coated with a hard anodized finish in matte black, which surpasses MILSPEC Type III, Class 2 requirements.

Brite-Strike was founded and is currently operated by active police officers who have committed themselves to developing and manufacturing state-of-the-art tactical illumination tools for law enforcement and the military. Their corporate philosophy is “If it cannot be operated with one finger of one hand, it is NOT tactical.”

Brite-Strike Tactical Illumination Products, Inc. (BSTI.PK) Secures Order from International Law Enforcement Officials

Tuesday, September 2nd, 2008

Brite-Strike Tactical Illumination Products, Inc. (BSTI.PK) is pleased to announce that the German US Coast Guard, DEA, and SWAT teams have committed to utilizing Brite-Strike’s Tactical Balls, a tactical illumination product designed for use by law enforcement officers. The Tactical Balls are currently being used by the U.S. Coast Guard, the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), local U.S. SWAT teams, and law enforcement personnel.

The Tactical Balls are 1 ½ inch diameter spheres with two white LEDs (>13,000 MCD) that each use two CR2032 batteries. Each ball is easily activated by a push-button switch and, when tossed into a room, is designed to stop with the light facing upward. The ball generates a strobe-like light that distracts and disorients an assailant, which provides law enforcement personnel with extra time to either draw a weapon or subdue a subject.

“Sometimes, seconds mark the difference between subduing a dangerous individual and being caught at a tactical disadvantage,” stated Glenn Bushee, President of Brite-Strike. “The light and movement of the tactical balls automatically draw a person’s attention, buying seconds of time that give law enforcement officers an advantage that literally can determine the outcome of any confrontation or standoff. Many agencies have banned the use of the highly incendiary flash-bangs, and there are times they are just not safe to use, such as an entry to a Meth Lab or on a gas powered vessel.”

The Tactical Balls come in a package containing three balls, six batteries, and a tactical deployment pouch. Brite-Strike designs its products with durability in mind, which allows law enforcement personnel to use the Tactical Balls over and over again with a maximum runtime of 20 hours. Each 3-pack can be purchased for $40, which makes the Tactical Balls an affordable training tool.

“Our goal is to put the absolute best, most technologically advanced, and most effective equipment into the hands of law enforcement personnel,” commented Bushee. “Any time we can equip officers or agents with a tool that will both keep them safe and help them accomplish their mission, we have succeeded.”

Brite-Strike Tactical Illumination Products, Inc. (BSTI.PK) Goes National with Ad Campaign

Thursday, August 28th, 2008

Since its inception, Brite-Strike Tactical Illumination Products, Inc. (BSTI.PK) has relied on trade shows and word of mouth to sell its self-defense flashlights to law enforcement personnel; however, Brite-Strike has recently begun a national advertising campaign designed to introduce the company and its products to everyday citizens.

Brite-Strike was founded by two patrol officers who felt tactical flashlights could be improved. Glenn Bushee and Jon Neal worked in a garage and soon created their first prototype. The company now has a Tactical Blue-Dot Series of products specifically designed for law enforcement or military use. The company also has a Protector Series of products designed for citizens who want a personal self-defense device. The waterproof, shockproof devices emit a bright light that can temporarily disorient an attacker.

Less than a month ago, Brite-Strike completed a reverse merger that allowed it to transition into a publicly traded company. John Lennon, VP of Finance at Brite-Strike, said the funds for the almost-$500,000 ad campaign were allocated as part of the company’s new capital structure.

The start of the ad campaign follows a report that Brite-Strike had reached an agreement with BJ’s Wholesale Club to sell the Lightning Strike. The agreement states that the Lightning Strike, a self-defense flashlight designed for everyday citizens, will be sold at 28 BJ’s stores located in 16 Eastern states and on the BJ’s website. Additionally, Brite-Strike has started selling its products to the general public on Amazon.com and Lowes.com. According to Bushee, “Our goal is to bring personal safety into the hands of ordinary citizens.”

The national ad campaign started with a splash on August 13 with a full-page ad that ran in 95% of USA Today’s newspapers. The campaign will continue through October 31 with 30- and 60-second cable television ads on CNN, MSNBC, and Fox News. According to Bushee, who is also the president of Brite-Strike, the campaign was scheduled to coincide with the beginning of the school year.

“Back-to-college is a critical market segment for us,” stated Bushee. “We’re hoping to catch some back-to-school business with the Lightning Strike series, allowing us to capture some additional business in the fourth quarter.”

Bright Strike Tactical Illumination Products Inc. (BSTI.PK) Featured on FoxNews.com Self-defense Segment

Wednesday, August 27th, 2008

President and founder of Brite Stike, Glenn Bushee, recorded an informational video for FoxNews.com on self-defense techniques. The video is an excellent medium for Bushee to showcase the personal protection line, the latest product from Bright Strike Tactical Illumination Products Incorporated that will be sold nationwide. This personal protection line is marketed as a key component that accompanies the company’s self-protection classes.

Brite Strike’s personal protection line offers an incredibly bright beam of white light in a small and convenient size with the goal of keeping women safe. The product also comes with a tactical carrying case that can attach to outer clothing or bags, as well as a lanyard made of composite material so it can be carried easily on a walk or jog. In addition to the intense flashlight, the package includes a personal alarm that emits a loud, piercing noise.

Bright Strike is a major advocate of the campaign to stop violence against women, and they intend to raise women’s awareness to their surroundings and the dangers of traveling alone at night. Self-defense classes are a weapon that can be used to combat this problem, but as Bushee says in the video, “the best self-defense tactic is one that you never have to use.”

Last year over 900,000 women were attacked at night in the US. Bright Strike hopes to help greatly reduce that number and improve the odds of women fighting back!

Brite-Strike Technologies, Inc. (BSTI.PK) Shines at the Second Annual New York Law Enforcement Exposition

Monday, August 25th, 2008

During the second annual New York Law Enforcement Exposition, Brite-Strike Technologies, Inc. (OTC: BSTI) took advantage of the heralded opportunity to introduce their products to fellow law enforcement officials. The NY Times covered the event and found the company’s futuristic-looking flashlights particularly interesting among the other lighting products featured, which happened to be a large part of the exposition.

Brite-Strike Technologies was formed after two police officers had a conversation during their midnight shift in regards to how much they disliked the flashlight options that they were given. It was after that conversation that officer Jon Neal and Glenn Bushee began to construct plans on how they were going to devise a new kind of flashlight. In their spare time they came up with the idea of inventing a new kind of lightweight, waterproof flashlight that would be made of aluminum and contain a recessed switch to prevent accidental activation. Shortly after, the two Massachusetts police officers found themselves at their precinct introducing their fellow police officers to their latest invention.

Their innovative and flawless white light flashlights – which come in various sizes and weights – are used to temporarily blind and disorient a suspect or attacker, providing police officers and citizens throughout the United States the safety they desire. The company only manufactures tactical LED flashlights with the latest Luxeon® LED and EMP chip technology, as older LED and incandescent lighting technology cannot compare. The flashlights are made from milled aircraft aluminum, making them significantly lighter and easier to handle. They have a unique three-sided body for an ergonomic grip, with a front “Tri-Strike crown” and rear “Tri-Strike crown” for maximum impact for pressure point and weapon retention techniques.

Compared to an ordinary flashlight, the Brite-Strike beam is a brilliant white light with a wider spread for flood effect. This results in an entire area of a vehicle on a stop being illuminated, and allows the officer to quickly look for weapons, drugs, or someone trying to hide inside a vehicle. If a police officer is attacked, the white light has the capacity to temporarily blind and disorient a subject during a hostile situation. With a quick click of the end cap switch the light switches to a low setting for use as a normal flashlight. The end cap switch is flush, preventing accidental power switching from on to off.

Brite-Strike announced today that it will be both a sponsor and an exhibitor at the upcoming TREXPO East Exposition in Chantilly, Virginia, at the Dulles Expo & Conference Center from August 26-29, 2008.

Product Review of Brite-Strike Tactical Illumination Products, Inc.’s (BSTI.PK) RL-150-HLS Flashlight

Friday, August 22nd, 2008

Recently we received one of Brite-Strike’s high intensity, tactical flashlights for review. To describe the quality crafted instrument in just a few words, it is extremely well built, couldn’t be easier to use, has an extremely small profile, and has up to 180 lumens of brilliant, flawless white light.

When first picking up the flashlight, we instantly recognized the sturdiness of the construction. According to the packaging, it is made from a solid billet of high-strength aircraft aluminum and protected with Class II, type II anodized Mil Spec. surface finish. Around the midsection and near the lens, a diamond pattern is cut into the aluminum to provide extra grip.

The light operates in two different brightness levels (70 and 150 lumens), and also has a strobe feature. The light turns on and off with a single click and the different modes are changed by simply holding the button down part way. Amazingly, the battery runs off a single AA battery and can last up to 1.8 hours if run continuously.

Along with the flashlight came a battery, in addition to a leather case that had a convenient belt clip on the back as well as a metal ring to attach the (included) leather wrist strap. The flashlight itself also has a built-in belt clip which can be used for even quicker access.

The brightness is very impressive, with 180 lumens of power! To compare just how much brighter the Brite-Strike is, we compared it with an 8 LED flashlight that is already a step up above the normal incandescent flashlight found in most homes. In one word, “WOW!” In a normally lit room, it was very difficult to see the 8 LED flashlight, but the Brite-Strike had no problem displaying its radiant light. The results in the dark were even more impressive, with the Brite-Strike outshining the other flashlight in both brightness and width of the beam.

The low-light setting also makes the flashlight useful for use around the house when a wide, bright beam is desired. Overall, we were very impressed and the light lived up to the raised expectations given by promotional material. If anyone has the newest, safest technology for citizen safety and law enforcement self defense, it is Brite-Strike Tactical Illumination Products, Inc.
