Thread: Any oldschool folk here from 10+ years ago?

    Default Any oldschool folk here from 10+ years ago?

    What's up everyone! I've been gone for about a decade but decided to log back in. Anyone around from back in the day? I'm the guy who used to sell silver polished Surefire's on a regular basis.

    *edit - It looks like all my previous posts were deleted? Anyone know why?

    I actually do in my closet somewhere LOL I'll go and see if I can dig them up over the holidays. I know for a fact I have at least one or two 6P's but don't know what else. Heck, I even have an original first generation 6P in excellent condition with box and paperwork too!

    Yeah, I'll try to see what I can dig up. I know I have at least 20+ different Surefire's from M6's down to 3P's but not too sure exactly what. Have you seen donn_, mdocod, jcct, and all those gen members around?

    Also, the Marketplace and CPF used to be separate and now have merged, so if many of your posts were perhaps on the MP that might help explain the lack of history. In any case, welcome back!

    Ayuh. 2006. I have had my interest wane on other forums, but I keep coming back here on a fairly regular basis.

    I have been here entirely too long.

    I first came here in a different life. Give it another 5 years and it will have been a full generation.

    I miss the Marketplace, it’s where I got started in this racket. I only came over here because of it closing up. I have lurked over here since 2006.

    This year is my 10 year anniversary!
    I'm going to have to find a way to celebrate this evening...
    So about these random M6's that you have laying around. Love to see them, and hear more about the polished lights!

    Member from 2007 here (though I was always more of a lurker than a poster), though I haven't been at all active in the last few years (bought a Zebralight SC52 and couldn't justify any more lights, so I forced myself to stop looking at the forum so as not to feed the addiction). I just logged in the last couple of days to get a sense of what has happened in the past few years, as I have moved—now in earthquake country—and wanted some extra AA/AAA lights for around the house in case of power outages/earthquakes. Yay for excuses! (Got a grabbag of ten L3 lights from sbflashlights for $88, which seemed an ideal deal for me; now eagerly awaiting what lights I actually get). It seems the forum is a lot quieter than it used to be, and that there haven't been that many flashlight developments in the past few years. (Heck, many models from when I las was active in 2014/2015 are still in production and their threads are still at the top.) In the old days, there was so much progress so fast, it was really fun to watch. Plus there weren't all the Chinese makers doing the nice work they do now and responding to demand, so the modding scene here was really active and amazing fun to read. Heck, I remember looking up reviews of all the models on the Ledmuseum website--right when the first high-flux emitters were starting to come out. The first lights I bought as a flashaholic were a CMG Infinity Ultra and a CMG Reactor 3 (one of the first lights to have a Luxeon Star LED, I think the Reactor was the first affordable one, interestingly they used the batwing emitter with an optic); I still have the Reactor 3—it's is a good emergency light and drains alk batteries quite fully (no regulation at all, just a in-line resistor--imagine that now in a light retailing around the $40 range!), and has one of the most bizarre operating mechanisms of any flashlight since released (though not complex, unlike the two Liteflux's I own).

    I have been a member since May of 2006.

    LED technology has changed a lot in the past 13+ years. It has been fun keeping up with the advancements. It is even more exciting to use new LEDs in classic lights.

    Not sure I count as old school compared to some of the people I remember when I joined but I'm still around!
    Currently looking for: SureFire E1W, 6PX 9/11. Any rare/old/unusual SureFires!
