Thread: My SureFire L4 story won!

  1. #1

    Default My SureFire L4 story won!

    Oh my gosh, I just got an email from Surefire...my story about my L4 being sucked up in a snowblower and surviving got selected as a "True Life" story! The story is titled "Surefire flashlights must not be tasty" and is on their website in the "True Stories" section under Extreme Stress Testing here.

    Here's the original CPF posting.

    Wilkey

    PS. Ol' Trusty still hangs with me every waking hour of the day as my ever-dependable EDC.

    Did they compensate you? (I hope!) (I followed the saga, from your loss to recovery, and the pics! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] )

    Cool!

    Cool! I didn't even know they had a contest for stories like yours. Good for you [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/thumbsup.gif[/img]

    We want to know if you won anything or if Surefire just posts the story as the "prize"?

    Congratulations, Wilkey. It couldn't have happened to a better or more deserving CPFer.

    Hi Guys,

    Thanks for all the nice comments. Well, it seems like they accept good stories as they come in but they choose whoppers for a monthly prize. The prize is a $100 credit for their online store so I feel doubly lucky!

    Now what to do with that credit...

    yeh, me too.

    Playboy used to pay $50 if someone sent in a joke which they then printed.
    SF should be as cl...assy as PB!
