but that price, 309 bones, whoa.

Yeah, that's 2023. $250-350 is the new $150-250 - overnight. Some things I've never seen at higher levels in my (now long) life: rampant crime, inconsiderate (and ignorant) people, inflation, and greed to name a few. I'm not saying that bones EDIT: Charlie is in the latter category, but as I recall it, this all reminds me of a grade school playground: once one kid does something they shouldn't, the others feel entitled / compelled to do it too. I think someone said that a new Surefire (which was apparently announced when I was young but is not yet shipping) will be priced at least that high (probably higher). People are lined up salivating like Pavlov's dogs waiting to get one, so I guess the manufacturers know what they can get away with (but not with me).

I'm considering trying to track down every single one somehow. I'm not even sure if that is doable honestly. I've had the alpha battle worn white and electric yellow alpha and they were shelf queens, then my ex sold them... when the Charlie became available, I had to wait 2 weeks until I was comfortable spending $309 on a carry light, because I'll be damned if I I'm gonna not use it the way Elzetta built it to be used. Losing those two alphas hurt, but I do have some honest gripes about the yellow charlie. Most of the time I don't even carry it. The beam color makes me sick 😫 🤒. That is the first time in history I've had an issue with tint on any elzetta. (I've owned 8 total)

A gem I bought a three pack of about maybe a decade ago from raven concealment. I think it was just called the raven concealment wire flashlight clip or something generic like that. I would pick there 10/10 over thyrm clips. I'm down to my last one and it's bent and warped but still holding on strong. You can view the old listing still I'm pretty sure. But if anyone's listening and happens to have any of these I'll literally buy a dozen.

I'm no expert and i'm not sure i could get the look of it right, bur i'm half sure i could manufacture something similar to that for you if you give me the dimensions of it in a proper way.

Awesome! I'd be down for a half dozen straight off… Do you reckon you could get the tensile / temper right?

I've no idea whatsoever, that depends on the material i use. I was considering trying to use welding electrodes to prototype with, if i'm lucky it'll even be enough without treatment to work as is. I'd need some kind of example of how it acts now, even a short vid of it being used and bent to the degree it would be in your use case.
