    Any oldschool folk here from 10+ years ago?

    I started lurking and reading posts in 2002 and joined in 2004, but haven't been very active the last few years as house remodel and other hobbies have taken over. I am still making new flashaholics with family and friends though, the last one being just this Christmas [emoji12]

    Streamlight Sidewinder Compact II Review
