    The most whacked thing about this is that extra money is being paid to the USPS to get the packages to us quicker than say, first class mail. Nobody is getting that money back because Iím sure they (the USPS) now have some sort of small print ďestimated delivery timeĒ statement that allows them to perform like they do.

    If if we pay extra for ďtwo day delivery,Ē how many days past that time period is really acceptable?

    BTW, my light delivery was updated today, 2/10, as having left the distribution center. Perhaps delivery tomorrow? Is 12 days an acceptable time period for actual delivery of a paid for, two day package??

    Some of my packages have taken a little longer, but many have been on time or nearly. I have had three lights delivered in the past week or so from different parts of the country and they ranged from 2-4 business days each, which I feel is pretty fair. Considering package volume is up like 40% over pre-pandemic days and thousands of USPS employees are out on any given day for COVID19 restrictions, Iím not sure what else they can do aside from their best efforts. I think it depends a lot on which facilities your particular mail goes through. Other courier services simply stopped accepting packages for a time so they could ensure delivery dates, so guess where all those packages went... USPS, who couldnít deny them. In any case, I believe there is a Carrier Rants thread in Cheers and Jeers if Iím not mistaken, which would be a good place for further discussion of shipping speeds.

    A Peli 2320 and two Peli 7100 holsters intended for other lights. Hope Theyíll fit. If anyone here has a 7100 Peli holster, please tell me what is the largest diameter you can fit in there.

    Streamlight protac 1L-1aa in coyote. It has the ability to be able to use a single cr123, aa, and apparently even aaa without any kind of spare parts or extensions. I thought that was pretty cool so Iíll give that a try. While I was at it I threw a streamlight microstream aaa in the order just for fun. I also bought more cr123 cells and a surefire battery case.

    I bought a malkoff M61L for my incoming 6p. 230 lumens, 5600k and 5+ hours listed runtime. It should do very nicely.

    A couple days ago I ordered a Maglite ML300L LED 4D cell. Specs are 1002 lumen on high with a 5 hour run time. Also has eco mode with an 18 day run time. Just got an e mail from Maglite that it was shipped yesterday.

    Some small ones:
    Lumintop Tool AAA,
    Sofirn SC01.

    I sent back the Lumintop, it came without the magnet and a Manker E02 II. I didn't like their CW tints.

    In exchange I asked for a Convoy S12 LH351D in 3500K and a Samsung 40T to go with it.

    Should be here next week.

    The Sofirn is awesome though.

    Well I got my surefire 6p and I love the incandescent tint so much that I just ordered a malkoff m61wll. Warm tint close to the incan, 80 lumens and 10+ hr runtime.

    Now Iím not sure what I will do with the m61L that I already ordered, maybe buy another host light.

    Nice, congrats! That is an amazing price too.

    I have this same light and I have to say I'm also a fan of the magnetic infinitely variable ring. It's also one of my only lights that takes almost any of my 18650 batteries and works! I have other lights that are very picky and will only work with specific size or button- / flat-top but the RTT-21 will take almost any 18650.

    I just wish that it had a better, NW high CRI emitter vs the CW stock emitter.

    Now on the way:

    - M61 219B v3
    - M31LL 219B v3
    - MD2 + high/low ring for the M61
    - VME head for the M31LL
    - MDC 1AA in neutral

    Oh dear, that escalated a bit quickly.

    I recently had the same think happen to me with a Pelican M6. Ended up getting a Malkoff NLL for it. Getting an Incan for the first time in many years, I was impressed with the tint and the beam.

    Maybe pick up a G3 for the M61L and get a long-running M61L set up?

    Currently waiting on a Kroll switch and sleeve for the Peli.

    I got the m61wll in yesterday and absolutely love it. Very similar to the incan beam, less hotspot but way more spill. Very nice beam thatís easy on the eyes and plenty bright for most everything and has that great runtime. Iíve never had a light I was so thrilled about as that 6p with the m61wll. I used to think I hated a warm tint, but I was wrong.

    Iím sure Iíll end up with something else to pop the m61l in. I plan to get a sf c2 centurion that at some point, so itíll work in that.

    Ordered a new charger, a Vapcell S4+. Iíve been looking for a new, faster charger for over a year now. Most cant handle protected 21700s. This one looks good. That and I doubt I would even be able to figure out how use some of the more complex chargers on the marked.
    Also, some 16650 and 18650 batteries along with some AA eneloops.
