Hello from Illinois

Hello everyone!

I’ve liked flashlights since I was a little kid. I started spending a lot more time reading up on flashlights, LEDs, batteries, drivers, etc. in the past few years after getting a Zebralight and a BLF-348.

I’ve tried to fight the temptation to add to my collection, but my self-control has failed Facepalm . Next on the horizon will hopefully be a BLF Special Edition light or two (Q8/GT/FW3A) and/or some of the new Emisar lights (D4/D1/etc). I also plan to build a few lights myself (Convoy) and tinker around with modding in general.

Thanks to everyone for all the great info these past couple years, and I look forward to seeing where things go.

Welcome to BLF Metallurgist! I agree it’s hard to resist adding flashlights to your collection, though it may help to post here: Flashaholics Anonymous: The Flashlight Purchase Refusal Kudos Thread.

I’d rather use my flashlight around the house than turn on the lights.
