    It' Good To See This Place Again

    Hello All, I've been gone a long, long time. I didn't leave this place for any other reason than flashaholism. I simply could not stand up to the temptation. Like a certain transformed hobbit and ring, I wanted the precious. I've made only one new purchase in four or more years. I did come...

    Found my old Tekna light today!

    Actually I had two of them, given as gifts in the late eighties. One was black, the other yellow. EDCed them for years, finally mixing and matching the body and bezel of both to keep a working light. Batteries were expensive back then, could't even remember the type, though I thought it was...

    R.I.P. Brad Delp

    Heard this the other day while driving home from work. I like Boston, and never got to see them. http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,258108,00.html

    Answering Machine That Will Call Out With Message - Help Find!

    We have an answering machine at work that will call us when a message is left on it. It quit dialing out. This has resulted in my co-worker and I having to call in and retrieve messages at least every hour - from 8 am to 1 am. That's seventeen hours a day! And that time extends longer on the...

    Anyone remember squeeze lights?

    I think that's what they were called. Maybe not. I'll try and describe them. They were disposable. The light was rectangular and small, pocket size. Activation was by squeezing the body. They had a bulb on the end, I don't think it was LED but could be wrong. Brightness and beam were pretty...

    Texans to pick Mario Williams first!

    http://www.houstontexans.com/news/detail.php?PRKey=2543 I know he's supposed to be great, a once in a decade DE. But man, I wanted Bush. Maybe the Texans know something I don't? Perhaps he wanted more than they were willing to give. Maybe time will prove me wrong, but my opinion of our owner...

    Piston Drive Question.

    My PDIII had begun to go straight to high when pushing the piston. Turning the bezel more to the off position helped, but then it had to be turned farther off every time, until the orange/red O-ring inside began to show. I took the bezel off and put it back on. Now, it's working awesome again...

    New Star Trek Movie!

    Just read on moviefone that a new Star Trek picture is in the works, to be directed by the Mission Impossible III director. It's going to be about the early days of Kirk, Spock, etc. I'm gonna try and get a link in a few here. I hope this won't be a non-functional link for this that don't use...

    Storm Damage!!

    I was awakened about six this morning by the storms coming through. The house was shaking. I thought it was thunder, as lightning was flashing. Went back to sleep. When I got out of bed hours later, the water pressure was off. They have been remodeling the school at the end of the road, and...

    A2 LED questions

    Having white LEDs in mine, and using blue ones in the store has me wondering about the various colors and their purposes, strong and weak points. White: Best color rendition. Not as energy efficient, and possibly harder on the eyes at night. Red: Won't spook game and tradional night vision...

    TL-3 problems...

    The flashlights gods have cursed me. After much waiting, my TL-3 Olive Drab is finally here. It works sometimes. When I first took off the tailcap to put the batteries in, the switch fell out of the tail cap. The spring is crooked also. The performance result of this is that it will come on...

    SureFire G2 or Another SF?

    I'm thinking about going down to the sporting goods store tonight or tomorrow and pick up one of these. Not sure if they'll have the P61 lamp assembly there or not, but I plan on picking one up if they do. I don't recall seeing any reliablity issues with these. It wouldn't be a huge expenditure...

    Rita - Crying Wolf

    The first two posts here were removed from the "Hurricane Rita check in and roll call" thread. Being off topic to the thread designated specifically for points of interest of those involved, I created this separate thread for this topic. - Empath Torchman Edit: I wanted to put the paragraph...

    One month buying spree: 5 lights!

    One month ago I was ordering my Inova T4, after initialy seeing an ad for the SureFire U2, a light that was about $250 bucks, a price I would never pay for a flashlight. In a quest for reviews on it, I stumbled across many good flashlight sights, including one called CPF... Here's all this...

    After dark flashlight delivery

    In what has to be the latest delivery ever (including Christmas) my Gladius has arrived. Installing the batteries was only a bit tricky, from reading here and the .pdf, I was able to do it fairly quickly. Good thing too, I would have been flabergasted otherwise. And the .pdf was unavailable...

    Gladius Purchase Questions

    I'm looking for recomendations as to where I can purchase the Gladius online, preferably with a place that takes phone orders as well. Any CPF supporting dealers? I've been looking around online, and from that and reading here I know it may be somewhat hard to find at the moment. I'm not super...

    What color is the finish & beam on your HDS EDC?

    I've decided my U60 is a gray finish after just viewing it in sunlight. Indoors it appears a hint of green too. The beam is on the bluish side.

    LED Night Lights

    I ordered the Saucer Light Washer and some Louver Lights from Glowbug. It took a couple weeks to get them, as the Louver Lights were on backorder. When they finally received them, it took only two days to get. The Louver Lights are really great. Auto on, the louvers control angle and...

    I ordered this Monday morning from Battery Station, came with free batteries and I ordered some more. Many thanks to Kevin there!! First impression is wow, it's so small. Turned it on to primary, good for most of my task. Ramped it up to max holding the button down. What a feature, and seems...

    Luxeon binning questions

    I've seen some of the charts that talk about the four basic areas they are binned in, vf, color tint, etc. But seeing them like this TXOJ, TWOH is greek to me. Is there a site I should look at that gives an easier to understand explanation? Or can someone at least explain the above examples that...
