    Lightbulb 1st & Latest CPF Influenced Purchase?

    The accurate, timely, reviews by Craig, Doug, and a few others plus the information and feedback in the CPF has influenced most (all?) of my light purchases since joining.

    Within a week of joining the CPF I ditched my EDC of 13 years (Solitiare) for an Arc AAA.

    The PT Apex & Fenix are the latest lights I was forced to buy due to the relentless onslaught of pressure, facts, and arm twisting shamelessly metted out at the CPF.
    I'm absolutely certain that I need another flashlight.

    The very first flashlight I received that stemmed from my website or CPF was a CMG Infinity (early-2000 I believe); the latest (due exclusively to CPF) was the purchase of a 1xAAA cell laser just this morning.

    1st based on CPF...

    Surefire L4 with McES2 (spelling) two stage switch.

    Lost it and decided NEVER to spend that much again.

    Latest Fenix L1P modded to 2-Stage. Like it so much I just ordered another one to mod.

    Im not entirely sure about my first purchase influenced. It was either here or the old original Flashlight forum that Surefire hosted, either way it was my SF M6. The latest and definately influenced here was a Fenix.
