    Sooner or later you will need to get that 30 or 40 gun safe. You ARE getting a nice collection together.

    Haha. I've still got room for a few more handguns with the pistol racks I have. So, i'm good I only have 2 rifles. and, the safe also holds all my ammo.

    My wife made me buy the safe with "new gun money." So, this will have to do

    It's a start. I'm getting a tiny bit jealous over that collection.

    Well, I just ordered a 2nd PS90 this week after selling my MSAR - so, that's tying up my money. And, I'll have to forgo that 2200 lumen Olight SR90 for now

    My 800 lumen Eagletac is enough for my nightly outoor stuff I do. My dog will go blind in 1 week if I go out there with 2200 lumens

    I have a couple more handguns I want, and then maybe sometime next year I'll snag one

    I did just order 1 more Solarforce for $25, though... I don't have one in "Sand" color - so I HAD to get it

    Here:

    Solarforce SAND L2 300 Lumens R2 CREE T.Head Flashlight - eBay (item 280426676779 end time Sep-16-10 09:57:46 PDT)

    That's the one I got,...

    But if you go here, you can see all the stuff they sell - complete lights and parts:

    INTERNATIONAL TRADING COMPANY items - Get great deals on Flashlight, Flashlight Accessoires items on eBay Stores!

    A few FYIs before you order from there:

    Some of the prices are in Euros or pounds - but typically, most of the ads will show you the actual dollars once you go into auction itself.

    Be aware that their one cell 123 light needs a 3.7 v recharchable battery - you cannot use a store bought 123 cell (they are only 3.0 V). But the standard two cell 123 lights can use store bought 123 cells (like the on I linked to abov).

    And, Solarforce mkes some expensive lights too - you have to read to make sure that you don't get 1 that needs 18650 rechargables...

    This is my 4th Solarforce light - the $25 ones - like the one I bought at the link above - are very nice. I have two black ones and a gun metal one. I wanted to try this color.

    Thanks for the heads up, I appreciate it. The e-bay store made me laugh when they called the switch a "clicky". I expect the lead time is around 3-4 weeks for delivery? I think for that price and free shipping that is a good deal. I'll check the other site out later.

    No, that's what they are called - and on the CPF site too.

    Actually, you are looking at about 2 weeks. My first one took a little longer, but the other 2 took about 10-11 days.

    Unless you order on a weekend, they tend to CLAIM to ship next day. But with free shipping, it is a great deal. You can buy Solarforce lights from licensed Solarforce dealers here in the USA - but it's cheaper to buy from their hong kong shop....

    That's a good deal....free shipping and then cutting out the middleman. I probably pull the trigger today. Thanks again. Oh I was rooting around my father's celler yesterday and came up with a coast guard approved 2 D cell black flashlight circa early 50's. It has a wire guard around the bulb. Thought it to be cool. He was into flashlights also.

    Yep for many years a flashlight was usually a D cell battery with a bulb. Now I guess in the past 10 years[correct me if I'm wrong about time wise] there has been leaps and bounds on these little gems of artificial light. What lies in the future as far as technology goes?

    I think eventually, all there will be left will be LEDs.

    But they will get brighter and cheaper as time goes on

    I think you are correct in your assumption, last night on tv this guy was showing the new led home light bulbs and stateing that in 2012 the incondescent light bulb will be gone for good. They showed the differance between one and the new led, the electricity is 1/10 of the old style. The cost of the new led will be about $60 but will last about 18 years.

    Got my Sand colored solarforce in today - it has the nicest anodizing out of all of them. Cool color too.

    There must be some variation between the LED modules. They are all the same model insert - but the one that came with the sand light is the brightest with the most throw
