Read this threadOk so what can I use to protect my flashlights? And other electronics. I mean like use lead or what?
It would also take out any type of sighting device that uses batteries. Think red dot or night vision optics, anyone without back up irons will have issues if their battery operated optics fail. This is where the 1-4x variable scope with back up iron sights comes in very handy.So it's possible an EMP could take out something as simple as a flashlight...wow!
How many people have AR's with rail mounted flashlights...which after being exposed to an EMP and may or may not work...that would not be good...
I was thinking the same thing, when I used to do a lot of side work on computers I had hundreds of those bags laying around it's nothing but an anti static bag. I'm not sure I'd want to trust my sensitive electronics to an anti static bag in an EMP event, not that I'm particularly worried about one. If I still had all of those bags I could make a fortune on them, DOH!I'm very skeptical of the "EMP" claim. I know these for protection from static, etc. but an EMP is a whole beast.
Reminds me of the guy on the Internet, who for $29.99 could diagnose whether or not you car's computer was susceptible to the Y2K bug.
All you had to do was give him your credit card # and hold your cell phone by the battery of your car for 15 seconds. OMG
