Show off your collection! *pics*

Hey everyone! It seems as though most people here must have a hefty collection of lights (and other gadgets).

I know I keep mine almost all together among my knives/multi tools/lasers etc.

Where do you guys keep your collection?

Lets see them! Smile

 

This is my collection so far minus a couple lights I keep on my keychain/in my car etc.

This is an old picture. There are more of them now. That's about a third of them.

Don't do knives as UK law makes most all of them illegal.

About a third of them.

 

The numbers from my light tests are always to be found here.

But here's mine (so far):

The little Sipik F-T stays on my belt,  the recoil is usually mounted on my 22.....the others are kept handy indoors.

Don you really have a lot (quite an understatement) of lights. Didn't you say one time that you have enough cells to light them all? Well how about a 20.000+ lumen shot of all of them fired up? That however might be difficult since before you can switch on the last the 1st might end it's runtime. Smile

You will probably need a cubic meter of styrofoam or similar to sandwich all faslhligts to be able to fire them up easily and to not have issues if they don't stack up good or tailstand.

From the ones on the spreadsheet, I can only manage to make around 17,000 lumens.

 

Need some more lights!

I wonder if a 5min exposure at 17.000 lm can result in some tan or burnt skin? o.O

I think such output slap in the face can be felt easily.

I'll need to try and see if you can see them in Slovenia. There seem to be some inconvenient Alps in the way though.

Yep, those are in the way... But i guess the slight earth curvature at our distance would be the real issue.

A 17.000W laser might do the trick perhaps...

Bluebeam,

  Nice collection...Ok, correct me if I'm wrong:  The one on the left is a Bersa ultra compact 13+1 in 9mm, and the one on the right...eh....hard to tell, but I'm going with Browning or CZ also in 9mm...

  It's also nice to see more folks into Ham...My friend just got her extra class....I really need to get off my duff and do the same.

You are correct, the pistol on the left is a Ultra Compact Pro which is a fantastic sidearm I must add! And that old thing on the right was my Dad's Browning Hi-Power, it is quite old and has many thousands if not millions of rounds fired through it and it has never failed not once and is a tack driver!!

I have many more firearms, those were just the two closesest to me for my quick pic. I got a few more lights too, and I had to throw in my good ol' Spyderco I carry everywhere.

Me and my wife both love to shoot and Ham radio is also great fun!

Welcome to BLF Lawnmowerman!  Damn fine collection.... It looks like you found a couple of models you're fond of and stuck with it.  That's never a bad thing...

Needs more space for a good group shot , but here are most of them ... 

 

Another shot another day , ill need to find a better location , and a better angle ...

Most of those lights have batteries in them and are ready to rock n roll .  [ 90% +  ]
