    I missed seeing the 005 in person. That is one that has been on & off my radar.

    The 005 belongs to Bla2000, so it is local if you want to see it!

    Big Ballers? You just sold a Uvivex and have a nice LF2XT going... Looks pretty good to me!

    I'm not a big baller. I've just sold a Drake. I have to subtract before I add more lights. I have a system similar to a salary cap and roster limit. I'm trying to stick to it so I don't end up with hundreds of lights and on the show Hoarders. It's just to easy for me to get carried away and continue buying so I have to comprise by selling as well.

    Unfortunately to justify keeping the extra Mako I had to cut the Drake.

    Remember you have a buyer for that extra mako.

    I get to compare them everyday because I'm carrying them side by side in the same pocket - got to love titanium and the way its beauty increases with use.
    I'm still using my Draco and it was happy to see another TiCN which Bla2000 brought along with his chrome Draco and black diamond Drake.
    He also had the first Mr. Bulk lights I'd seen in person, one of which was the blued damascus version seen in the pics. My first view of an 005 too.
    Avro showed me the first PD McGizmo's I'd ever seen and I got to play with a PD-S, Lunasol 20 and Lunasol 27 - he left with my 007 and I left with the LS-20.

    I also got away with 14250 NS Raw and NS Wee, while Krazy89 ran off with my TC-R1.

    Gunga's Sunwayman collection was a bit startling too, but one of the big hits were all the goodies brought by Mindstretch!

    Seemed like you guys had a lot of fun. It's great to put faces on some avatar I've been seeing for years now. I should have drove 3000 miles to be part of that GT...

    Suggestion guys: next time, allow yourself some extra time to spend outside, a good GT should be followed by some real outside beam tests like we did in Montreal...


    I'm glad you guys had fun, who knows, I might join yourself for the next GT !

    Nothing is planned in the short term. If someone wants to propose/organize one, I'm game.

    I would be down too if there is a get together! I'm still noob to the flashlight world but I have one light that is worthy to bring to the meet

    All lights are worthy. We don't discriminate.

    Glad to hear this because I was a little intimidated by the killer lights I saw in the pictures posted of the last meet

    No worries. I was displaying the entire lumapower Edc line. They all retail for less than $35. We just took pix of the big guns since it's more fun to display!

    Case in point would be the two older guys we talked to for at least half an hour. Had a good time with them too and they showed us their $10 lights, looked at a lot of ours and walked away happy with the way we treated them.

    That's great to hear, I have not met any other flashaholics before except for a 2 when I was in Hong Kong. Is anyone ok for a meet next weekend (July 20-22)?

    I'm a North Burnaby guy and would like to join in if someone's bringing a Jetbeam TCR1. Is it considered bad taste to try and sell stuff at a meet? I'm unloading some lights, knives, bags, etc before heading overseas.

    I'm interested. Selling or trading items is fine with me. It has happened previously.

    Having stuff for sale and trade is what everyone is hoping for. When I was there at least four of us found things we'd been looking for and I doubt you'll have trouble spotting a TC-R1 as there are at very least two of them in possession of other Vancouverites.

    How about next week, monday or tuesday?

    I just got a couple Ti Eagletacs I can show (it's all Pete's fault!).

    Buying and selling is fine, and fun. Let me know if you want anything. I will bring my TCR1, but it's not for sale.

    I was hoping to find something to buy because I have nothing to sell LOL.

    Hmm...I don't know if Monday-Tuesday would work for me yet, but I will try...What location are we going to use?

    Edit: Monday is much better for me than Tuesday, so how about Monday?

    Monday could work. You will have to let me know what you want to buy. I'll see what I can arrange.


    Bla2000, you in?
