Why is it that sometimes members feel the need to toss in a lit match and burn it all down?

Well, this was fun. :party::crackup::lovecpf:

Seriously though, @TPA, amidst all of the malarkey and hilarity, have we managed to change your mind?

Almost ended up buying that Sofirn model. But the magnetic tailcap killed it for me. I'm not into those.

For me the issue is, I like to wear automatic watches. Watch on my left wrist. Main EDC light in my left pants pocket. So, of course, light and watch next to each other. Watch gets magnetized, stops working. Yes, I can buy a cheap de-magnetizer off of eBay, but same issue will keep happening. As for keys, a small, cheap aluminum carabiner attached to the key-ring and then clipped onto a belt-loop would prevent Lost Key Syndrome.

You just described my whole setup! I've also got my spare battery holder/secondary light in my right pocket, but the one I always reach for first is in the left pocket.
