I'm still here! Haven't bought anything (guns, light, knives, socks or underwear in about a month) as I just bought a house and my days of toy spending are gone for the moment.

Still hanging for the fun and enjoying seeing who got new stuff. Living vicariously through NL!

As much as I'd love to see the individual light threads stay on CPF, the reality is, Vinh isn't posting much here anymore, it's just us chatting away. I reached out and suggested keeping the light threads going as it's easier to reference back as the old threads are so informative and easy to search. Also it's great seeing how excited everyone was over 10k lumens a few years ago. Haha.

Hopefully We can bring it back, but it's not just the summer slowdown as reason we aren't seeing it. He launched a few new lights already and there aren't threads here.

l16vn launched for anyone who missed it.

It appears my light table has gotten smaller over the past 10 months or so. I might need to clean the darn thing sometime too.

Mike, congrats on your new house!

And forget about buying underwear... I've been wearing the same ones for 10 years and no one really cares.

What a table there wimmer!
I display mine on a table for V54 family pictures. But I have to clean them off before the wife unit gets home.

Not because it wouldn't pass muster with the decor police, but I don't want her to see them all in one place where she can count them! :eek:

Winner collection is actually great.. can you write a list of all your light so we can see it. ( Not to buy) .

I remember at one point you have more lights than I am.

Thanks Ven, MAD, NL. I never set out to own 80 flashlights (sold about 30 or I'd have well over a hundred) but apparently this hobby is kind of addicting? :oops:

I still do have more than you lol, but you've got me beat by a long shot in the V54 category!

HAHAHA MAD, you are a very wise man. Luckily for me (and NL) we can sleep with our lights if we want to. ;)
