    I have somewhere around 100... maybe even 110!

    TOO much trouble to count them all!!!

    Hmm, I'd probably say Craig...as for how many, I couldn't even guess...did try to count them on the site one night, but got lost.

    Rechecking, I just got 190 flashlights...plus a lot of non-flashlight stuff...and including the new entreis section...a total of around 340. Though there are probably a heap not on the site as well, and it's late...my count is probably way off!

    How many of those are commonly sold at stores like Walfart?
    How many are not, like Arc/ElectroLumens?
    How many are modified?

    I have about 70 common, 2 uncommon, and 0 modified.(I have parts on the way, modding soon)

    I'd estimate that I have more than 300 lights - so your guess is probably relatively accurate. There are some that aren't on the site at all (mainly antique and/or obsolete ones), but I think most of them are in some way or other. Many reviewed, some in the pipe waiting for their turn, and some duplicates (or triplicates or quadruplates, etc.). It's late and someone busted the coffeepot. Oh wait, I used that line in a Commodore 64 demo I wrote in the late 1980s or early 1990s. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/icon15.gif[/img]

    At the last estimate there must be more than 200 here. I havn`t inventoried them yet though so it could be more or less. Some special ones (McLux assembled by Don himself, TNC LuxStar 5 watt), some nice ones (SFs, Tigerlight, Tektites, Arcs), some vintage ones (Pifco, EverReady) and a fair bucketload of cheapies (squeeze lites, Varta, Mag Solitaire [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img] etc).

    One of these days I`ll photograph and catalog it all. The 200 torches shouldn`t take all that long in comparison to the 2500++ light bulbs......

    Wow!

    You guys have a sh!tload of flashlights!

    I only have 21 flashlights and my friends poke fun at me because I have so many. I have also given away another 20 or so both here and to my family.

    Now....if you want to talk toolboxes, I have about $45,000 worth of mostly Snap-On tools at work and another $5,000 here at home.

    edit- I just checked and I finally made it to my 100th post. Cool!

    I only have 8!
    In a few days I will have 10 and should be pretty happy while I try to make #11. Then I will give one away to make an even 10.... Must not let the addiction rule me... until the 3 watt Luxeons come out....

    I have 18 lights. 6 of them very rarely get used (mostly M*glites). But I have 2 more Arcs on the way! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
    I have started getting better quality lights instead of a greater quantity.

    If you count real lights then I have the fewest, I only have 1 (Arc AAA). I have a bunch of mag's though.

    I have a measly collection:

    1 AAA Arc LE
    1 4D Energizer Hardcase Lantern - in car
    1 6AA Energizer DoubleBarrel - in car
    1 4AAA Energizer DoubleBarrel (Old style - twin batt caps)
    4 4AAA Energizer DoubleBarrels (New style - single batt cap)
    1 2C Energizer ComfortGrip

    The ComfortGrip currently has my only white EverLED installed in it. I've been wanting to mod my DB's but have not gotten around to it.
