Sad news indeed. I've ordered a few things from them in the past. Back when I joined CPF in 2006, they always used to have the latest lights and the fastest shipping from US to UK.

WOW! Very sad to see. Great vendor over the last 11 years I have been here. Best of Luck to LightHound in the future.

Very sad news to hear. They were the first online store I ordered anything flashlight related when I first joined CPF.

This is sad news. I actually frequented their store when I was in Pearland, TX. Then they relocated to Alvin and I was never able to stop in since. :(

The website was redone. I thought that was a good sign of reinvesting in business because your going to be around. Hopefully all is good for them.

That's a bummer. I seldom order flashlight stuff anymore, but had placed a few orders from them over the years.
They're actually listed in my CPF Profile for 'Favorite Dealer'.

I still have a free coin-cell light from them clipped to a mounting point in my briefcase.
Probably have a second one from them somewhere around here as well. :candle:

Edit: I note that the Cheers to Lighthound thread archived at CPF/MP is by far the longest Cheers thread in CPF history, with 527 replies. :(

Farewell Lighthound, I will personally miss you very much. Guess I gotta order from Illumination Supply. Let's keep them from going out as well.

Could be something major and that occurred without warning...didn't even have a chance to hold a going-out-of-business sale.

Sad to hear indeed. Placed 3-4 orders a year from them since 2006. Hope they are all ok. :(
