    Operation Afghanistan Christmas Lights

    The Christmas gift arrival in Afghanistan went awesome!!! If someone would be so kind as to email me, I have a few pictures I want to post but don't know how to do that. Everyone over there expressed their thanks for all the stuff sent. Almost 100 boxes sent. Great work and thanks everyone!

    Operation Afghanistan Christmas Lights

    I understand from Nick's dad Bruce that a mountain of boxes has arrived at the Task Force Saber base in Afghanistan. I hope to have news or pictures shortly of the unpack celebration. Inova lights have just departed that direction and more local donations continue to pour into the store on a...

    As of today, Friday the 7th of December, 65 boxes have been shipped to this platoon. We have enough local donations and a few more lights yet for an easy dozen more boxes. The stuff just keeps on coming in the door!!! Our local radio network really did this big. They ran free ads for two...

    Operation Afghanistan Christmas Lights

    As the last 4 years, this has been an honor to be allowed to help in this project. I am going to make a list of "thank you's" next week. The local Chamber of Commerce, Radio Stations, Churches, Schools, Newspaper, and dozens of West Plains busineses and individuals and CPFers and AR15 members...

    Any Surefire Discounting?

    I only mentioned Surefires donation as this was a Surefire thread. You are correct. Inova has donated a ton of lights. As to the price vs. volume thing, that is also correct. Volume wise, we have sold a lot more Streamlight or Pelican at much lower prices so there is something to be said for...

    Any Surefire Discounting?

    Signing up as a Surefire dealer was one of the best things we ever did. They make no doubt the worlds best flashlight bar none. The difficulty with MSRP only is moving out the old model when the new model comes out. When the X-300 came out, it made the X-200 a dust collector unless you throw...

    Operation Afghanistan Christmas Lights

    We probably have the lights covered by now given the tremendous response from Inova, Pelican, Surefire, and Streamlight. Rayovac is also donating alkalines. We will take care of the lithiums. The local folks are starting a pile here too. Since the weather gets REAL cold there, we are trying...

    Operation Afghanistan Christmas Lights

    On a local level, companies are donating some stuff like jerky, toothpaste, candybars, coffee, and stuff like that. Kids at the local schools are making cards to send and some videos. We are taking care of hot chocolate too. On a sorry note, I quote the following from Bruce (Nick's Dad)...

    Operation Afghanistan Christmas Lights

    Kirk - All, Not sure on the rechargeable issue but I would assume they could as the base has AC. Surefire, Streamlight, Pelican, and Inova are all chipping in on this operation. This is a first. Rayovac is donating alkalines and we are designating PP donations to primary CR123A cells. They...

    Operation Afghanistan Christmas Lights

    Sure, if anyone wants to send something directly to the troops, email me and I will send over their direct APO address. I am trying to avoid putting that address on the internet at this point for security reasons but would be glad to send it to anyone who wants it. You can also send stuff here...

    Operation Afghanistan Christmas Lights

    I have a note from Bruce (Nick's dad) that I thought I would share with everyone. Also, if someone would email me, I will send them the photos that Bruce sent with this email. They are awesome. I am sorry I don't know how to resize and post them here. Someone please contact me and I will...

    Operation Afghanistan Christmas Lights

    I believe they are Army Special Forces. See the photo here and you might be able to tell. We hope to bury these guys with stuff just like the Hellfire Squadron the last three Christmas seasons. http://www.batterystation.com/afghansnipers.htm If someone can paste those pics in here, do it. I...

    Operation Afghanistan Christmas Lights

    Sorry I forgot to mention that. When we did the Hellfire Predator Christmas donations, we got both product and monetary donations. If monetary donations are sent, they are used AT COST in our store for whatever it is they need the most. A ledger is kept as before and a total is available. A...

    Whats in the pipeline for surefire lights

    I was starting to wonder when (IF) this thread would get back to lights? Sounds cool. Hilarious. Good work PK. Al is a natural attraction it seems to attractive flashaholics. Maybe he should start a recovery group.........

    Battery exploded in flashlight

    It would seem that single cell lights are the safest because most are LED and they eliminate the "mixed cell" added hazard. I believe SFs now to be Energizers.

    Battery exploded in flashlight

    I am not sure how to say more than Newbie and others have already said except this: Exploding batteries is NOT, I repeat NOT a brand of battery issue. They are ALL unsafe in certain yet to be completely understood conditions. There is a lot of common sense things to keep in mind like NOT...
