Let's go back a ways.... 2004 ish... when you're posting from Saudi Arabia while being a glorified security guard... I mean force protection.

Or someone who I haven't seen here in a while... while he was a civilian contract employee in Scania in Iraq. He also set up a small radio station for them.

When you can't stand the new street lights in your town because they are an angry blue tint. Why did they install those?!

When you buy a 704 lumen flashlight and add an ultra clear glass lens hoping to get 706 instead. 👍

Yup definitely worth the extra $10. :lovecpf:

Really worth the $10. Which light is it?
A 3c Maglite that states 705 lumens. I added a glass lens to the cart during their Labor Day sale. Worth it to me if for no other reason the superior scratch resistance versus the stock lens.

Truthfully it's the same picture twice with the glass lens installed. But I'm guessing flashaholics were looking for those 2 lumens in the second photo. :au:

When you're not entirely sure how many you have.
When to find out if you have a flashlight or not, look in your e-mail first than look for it in the containers.

(I'm trying to figure out if I've ever bought a Zebralight H52w and a SC52w and I'm looking in the 2014 mail)

When you buy 3 off a board member that includes 1 you already own; just because you have a bit of cash to try something new & you want to see if the same light from different sources really have the same performance
