:thinking: Being that I have been on this Forum for about 3 years OFF and On, I think it can be said that the majority of flashlight enthusist don't buy as many USA made/Assembled flashlights. I like to buy American high tech products if possible too support our work force. I also think that our companys that build products here in America don't get enough support! American technology has typically been at the forefront of technology and alot of other countries copy our technology/electronics. What I'm trying to get at is, there is not enough comparisons between American made/assembled lights and overseas lights. Pelican vs Fenix, Surefire vs ?....you know what I mean! Hey I own a Fenix LD01 stainless and I like It, but the electronics of this light was most likely developed using our technology. Lets see more comparisons of American lights vs over seas. I know American light typically cost more, but!!!!! Quality control of some of these overseas companys is lacking and could get better over time.
