Do this for me. Look around you, anything that you can pick up by hand, check out the bottom. A coffee cup, a ball point pen, an ash tray, ANYTHING plastic. Does it say Made in China? Made in Indonesia...Philipines...Thailand? I've had this flashlight since the 60's. It's metal, the lens is real glass, and it says Made In USA! And it STILL works!! How many flashlights have you ever bought at The Dollar General? WalMarks? The Dollar Tree...Do they work? Nuff said!! BTW, how about that Eisenhower Silver Dollar? I ask for them at the bank, it really fucks up a cash drawer. Hehehehehe...I'm such a naughty boy! Peace...!!!
