    You sound like you'd be right at home with my brother, he can put something down and turn around, after that it's gone.

    I lose a lot of stuff, but mostly pocket knives. I've only lost one flashlight ever. Well, I've lost a lot of flashlights but I've found them all after. Except for one. A 4 Sevens mini MKII. Left it somewhere in a hotel room in Las Vegas. Didn't realize it until I got on the plane. Of course I go to buy another one a week or two later only to find out they just went out of business.

    CPF member for 11+ years now, and for that time I'm down exactly qty.2, 2xAAA penlights. I love those slim little things, but that form factor does tend to slip away unnoticed. :-/

    Am still for the second one tho - kinda know where it went ...

    Once I couldn't find my first drop BOSS 70 ......... worst 30 seconds of my flashlight life. I've never lost a light before or since.

    Never point a flashlight at anything you don't intend to illuminate! Never buy a flashlight you have to make payments on.

    Put a Tile on it; it'll beep loudly if you're within 300 ft, give you a map if it's farther away.

    I keep losing microstreams....
    Just microstreams. After a 3 year search I finally found another 2nd gen and a week later...poof, gone.
    I give up.

    I lose more money than flashlights. I did find my glasses. They were on my head

    In a dreadful sandstorm at our Palm Springs Main home, at an event, I lost an Aeon, one the original ones, and I always say some goof found it, and it is in the kitchen junk drawer as they cannot figure out the battery.

    So far, I've lost two lights: a Spy007 and a Muyshondt Aeon MKIII. Lost both at home and I really hope i find them soon. I've already replaced the Aeon with another, but am holding out on the Spy hoping it resurfaces

    Just said a short prayer asking that you'll find your Spy.

    IMO, if you don't know where they are after searching for several hours, they are lost. I've offered a $100 reward to my sister if she can find my Spy, lol. I've considered the Aeon a lost cause as its tiny and prob got thrown away. I'm assuming it's still at home, but who knows at this point

    Well, I misplace things, like everyone, and my wife always remindes me...if it did not leave the house it is here.

    You may may want to interegrate your family! Nothing can be lost if it did not leave your home. Otherwise...

    Iím convinced that there is a place where things go...a time warp or dimensional shift that causes things to simply disappear. Socks, gloves, wrenches/sockets, flashlights, screwdrivers...whatever...If I cant find an object that Iím certain has never left my house, I resign myself to the fact that Iíll have to wait until it rematerializes from the ether...if ever. Right now I canít find a very special Frelux Synergy 1...Increasingly, I fear that it has gone ďpoofĒ....
    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.

    My former science teacher sez theyíve already invented a dematerializer. Itís when the rematerializer is invented weíll be in trouble. Why do i feel maxspeeds owns that storage locker whose contents was sold for non-payment. There was $7,000,000 in it

    I lost a brand new Surefire EB2 Backup. Made me sick. Took it camping and got left behind. I try to be more midful now. Can't afford losing Surefires.

    I feel your pain. The smaller they get the faster they go
