            Comments about Orion 12-Gauge High-Performance Alerter Basic 4-Signal Kit:

            This is one of those items you carry and hope you never have to use! While I was preparing my boat for launch a few weeks ago, I did a complete safety check (USCG Checklist). I noticed my flares were going to expire this fall. I did not want to take a chance so I purchased this particular flare gun as a backup and to ensure compliance/dependability. I am extremely safety oriented and this gave me peace of mind.
