    That is an interesting solution - not the JB weld part.

    I agree, i think a lot of the guys want these special runs but are die hard clicky only.
    It is a bummer that both couldn't be offered cause sale would be a bit higher.

    However, on the bright side for the clicky lovers...these rotary only runs are saving you a bunch of money
    That might just be a really good thing...i know Hogo has me suckered just like the credit card companies like to do to those weak people that like to spend money

    Got confirmation from Henry, kindly changed from flush to raised. I feel good but also a bit sad for those who wanted this and missed out...But take heart! Iím sure great stuff is yet to come...actually, there is...Naval Brass!
    I only fear that if something happens to me, my wife will sell all my stuff for what I told her I paid for it.

    I get that, really I do. But can I just say that this is nothing new. I mean, it may be new for HDS, but its not new in the wider "high end gadget" markets. I've been playing these games with knives and spinners and pens and other flashlights for years now. I mean it took me something like TWO YEARS to land a Hanko. And all the while HDS was chugging along doing what it does, and doing it very well, but not exactly pushing many envelopes. But now they are, and they're generating the same sort of buzz some of the other high-end brands and makers out there manage. And that's awesome for them. Frustrating at times, but awesome.

    I guess the only advice I can offer is to learn to enjoy the chase - enjoy the hunt. It can be fun if you let it be

    PS: No I didn't score a bronze today either :/ Maybe brass next week...

    You were number 22, so in spite of your connection, you almost made it. That should give you some hope for brass if you want one.

    Perhaps all of those of you who have the fast internet and scored the bronze would be kind enough to not try for the brass and let some of us poor (very sad) souls have a fighting chance.
    Just kidding.

    I scored a bronze using the 4G on my phone while waiting in line at a restaurant. I wonít be trying for a brass...hopefully you score one. What helped me a lot was having PayPal already logged in.

    Yes, you can also keep PayPal logged in, so it's always logged in for HDS. This makes it a one click checkout process, so to speak.
    Buy item, choose method of payment in PayPal, click pay.

    I have also learned another trick or 2 along the way...
    Make sure to do a trial purchase before hand. Sometimes purchases are left in the paypal checkout and need to be removed. You don't want that there to surprise you.

    So start a purchase and remove all items, then close the window. And this could just be a chrome thing, idk.

    If you plan to order additional items, go through the initial checkout so those items are saved in paypal. That way when it's time for the pressured purchase, you only have to add the light

    Hope this makes sense.

    Although you/we should have double the time for the brass run.

    I would be interested to hear about the emitter choices people who scored these lights went with. Chose NB40 myself.

    Yes, I would have been sorely tempted by a Clicky but with the huge level of interest and such limited supply, I thought someone else might enjoy this one even more.

    Yep, I wanted a REX45 PM2, had a half-dozen alerts pre-set, etc, etc, but all 1200 slipped away ... mostly in waves of 5-10 at a time.

    Login issues, dropped signals, router problems, shopping cart hiccups ... had it all, this go around

    That's the same that I picked for Ti and bronze. Still deciding if I need/want a brass in NB35
