    I thought I had quite a few...., I'll list them with potentially incorrect nomenclature, but will add some comments.

    AL McLux III PD-S
    was slate - off at Modomag's exotic coating (going for Audi A4 Grey HAIII). One of my fa
    favorites.
    Al "Oilslick" McClicky Mule
    This is the light that when I saw a photo of it I went over to the custom b/s/t forum. Took me a while to get one - the new button changed the whole characteristic of the light - unbelievable. My first one (not oilslick) lit up the bar at the Airport Hilton Garden Inn in Halifax one night during a power failure.
    27LT-S
    What a nice nice beam on this one.

    Ti PD-S Mizer
    Ti PD Mule - with high cri LED (off at Modomag's)
    Lunasol LS20
    Lunasol LS27 - AlTiN coating
    BB Haiku
    Sundrop XR-U
    2-Pak (splash ano'd) McClicky hosting Creemator head

    Photo was taken when LS20 & Haiku were out at Matt's modeling for holsters. Also - the Ti bezel on the slate PD I had taken out the trits in prep for having it coated.

    I guess 10 is enough!

    Here's my modest collection:

    Milky modded P7 Mule
    Aleph 3
    AlTiN XR19 with Q5 emmitter
    AlN/AlTiN Mule Miser with clicky pak
    XR 19 with original C-pak
    LS 20
    LS 27
    Sundrop XP
    Haiku

    Crash
    To paraphrase Galadriel "In this magic torch, is caught the light of the LED set amidst a titanium case. It will shine still brighter when night is about you. May it be a light to you in dark places, when all other lights go out."

    and I love that hard-coated XR19. Even the etched clip is coated? Very nice.

    Is that one of RPM's bezels on the second PD-S?

    Yes is the answer to both of your questions. Excellent call big boy.

    I'm sure you already know this, but that is also a RPM bezel on the Al PD head second from the right.

    Yes, I did notice that, buttercup. That other bezel looks like the one I have on my McGizmonster.

    Not a full list, but sitting in the DC area with over a foot of snow still on the ground and a warning for 10-20 inches more tomorrow and Wednesday, any USPS One Rate Box with McGizmo toys enclosed is cause for a: celebration and b: PHOTOS!

    A Mule Head for my L1 - and a C Pak that currently is hosting my Ti PD-S




    While I LOVE McGizmo's PD, I also love the McClicky!

    How does he do it? I mean, it's 'just' a mule! And I love the L1, but this simple 'dumb mule' head has transformed it into a totally different, totally useful light that provides a beautiful, uniform impressive light source.


    Purdy, ain't they??



    I think I need counseling....

    Have you tried putting the XP-G into the XR-U head? I'm presuming you can do that (they unscrew) like the Haiku XR-E (hope I got that right ) - quite amazing.


    As to the comment from run4jc (havn't figured out multipe quotes yet) concerning my "I guess 10 is enough" - note this is ONLY a guess !!

    Say it ain't so!!

    That means I can buy only 3 more!!


    I'm trying to keep my light collection below 30 "serious" lights. Note I have to quantify it as "serious" lights. Also - I haven't counted recently (just got my orange ceramic coated 6P - has the mcclicky)

    nfetterly - one of the reasons I ordered an XR-U is the ability to put the XR-E in it - I even ordered an XR-E GDuP engine from the Light Shoppe. I'm curious to as to whether that XP-G engine would go in, too!

    As to the comment from run4jc (havn't figured out multipe quotes yet) concerning my "I guess 10 is enough" - note this is ONLY a guess !!
    As for 'multi quotes', just click on the in each message you want to quote, then click on at the last message you want to quote. That ought to work.....

    How do you like that orange coated 6P? I WANT one - but I'm poor from the last 3 month of McGizmo acquisitions!!!
    One of those puppies with that 3 emitter XP-G module would be amazing - but my request for one of those was not in the top 30 so alas, no XP-Gx3 for me!!

    New photos of your collection soon, please!!

    There's been a change to the lineup - my original Haiku left yesterday to make a first time McGizmo owner very happy - my Sundrop XR-U just arrived to make me happy! So - currently:

    Haiku XP-G
    Lunasol 27
    Lunasol 20
    Ti - PD-S
    1 "C Pak" that will rotate among the 3 previously mentioned.
    Sundrop XP
    Sundrop XR-U
    2x123 McClicky Pak (hosting a Creemator)
    "Dumb Mule Head" for my L1

    Geez - makes me happy.

    What do some of you guys do for a living, that you can afford such a big number of lights, worth $300 or $500 each???

    I wish I could buy just two or three (or maybe more... ) some day...

    Civil servant...

    Please ask our wallets for further details. Before I discovered the Customs, I had a little money on my savings account, which should have stayed there for "important and necessary acquisitions". Thelast necessary acquisition was the Haiku XP-G and what's currently left on the account makes me hope future emergencies won't be dramatic ones!

    I'm not alone, I still didn't sell lights, other flashaholics constantly sell not only lights (kidneys, livers, eyeballs...) to buy the next McGizmo.

    We're doomed!!!

    I am not going to sell livers, but I slowly begin to understand selling a few production lights to get the custom one. I just don't have enough production lights now. I guess it will change over time
