wow, theres some nice collections here... if i were to include guns and knives into a pic with my lights, you wouldnt be able to find the lights... lol

20+ guns, 100+ knives, 4 lights worth showing, maybe 10 lights total including cheapo work lights and mags

Forget about your flashlights!  I want to see pictures of all your knives and guns.

my old ar-15 was set up, still trying to get there again

it was a generic lower with a model 1 a2 16" upper, threaded barrel, bayonet lug. and the bushmaster 20" flat top. had custom grips with custom charging handle. also had this .22 conversion. that gun was sweet even though the lower was generic. built it from the ground up.

hit hard times and sold it to my dad with first buy back option. sold it all on me but the 20" flat top for $700, said thats what the guy buying it said it was worth... i could have got close to $1000 for it all :/

This is my collection, minus the C3 SS, that one is in my overalls (i use it at work). I have just repaired the Akoray K106, the led was not very bright any more, i think it has been too hot. Now there is a R2 led in there (from the drop in that was original in the UF-C1, wich i have replaced by a UF 3-mode XM-L T6 drop in), so now the Akoray is a little bit brighter than with the original Q5.

I have to stop ordering flashlights, this should be more than enough. But there are some more on the way (UF-501B XM-L T6, UF Flood-to-throw zooming Q5 and a Saintfire K20)...

That's correct, it's a Streamlight nano. It is available from Amazon for $6.45 and i got 100 batteries from DX for ~$2. I've had it for over a year and only had to change the batteries once. It's brighter than your average squeeze light IMO and it takes up even less space. The only downside i've read is some people say the head can screw off in your pocket. Rather than waiting to find out, i just wrapped the threads with some plumbers tape when i got it and i've never had a problem.

Mine was black when i bought it, after a year of pocket tumbling, the finish is pretty sparse. But i do have a lot of keys... Smile

Great pics! Big Smile

 

 

My herd is staying about the same.

I keep selling / giving some, that I don´t like. Now I have 9-10 "proper" lights I like, will take a pic later.

2 of them not-budget...

Also, 2 of them might get sold away soon.

I will post a pic of mine soon. Soon as I can do a stock take when the Mrs is NOT around. It goes up and down as I have given quite a few away but then again I buy at least 3 for every 1 that I give away. One of these days she will find my stash and I am in serious trouble.

Oh Wholy crap thats beautiful. Always damn pretty with a more ambient light. 

How you keep your Ti scratch free is beyond me...

 

 

Where can I get a tank TK 506, and apparently the 3 mode is programmable?? Anyone know about this one?

I here you man, I had to wait until mine was sound asleep to take my updated stash picture. Thank god she didn't wake up while it was all spread out on the counter.

I am already visualizing the duct tape over your mouth.

All of ´em

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

From left, my first of all these budget lights which got me doing this madness, Romisen RC-C6, updated to Q5. Now serves as a toilet light for example dental checks Big Smile Might have had that Tank E06 before and black cat but not sure...

Generic Sipik clone (my boys use as beater), UF-H2b from promotion, Zebra SC-51w(oh bugger, should have gotten the cool one...)with crab-claw, gets some use also.

My only iTP ATM, the A1 SS with R2. Gets tons of carrying, too bluish tint otherwise nice.

Then for Solarforces: L2i with conservatively driven (1A) R5, gets plenty of use since it´s the best form to my hand so far... Black L2, only a leftover R2 3-speed dropin in it, soon will be sold as a body to my friend for few bux.

 

At center, The GUN, Lambda 2D XM-L Mag. Gets only a slight use since it´s huge and 1-mode.

Ahh, my new fave, DGQ II Tiny. Too bad got only one since my 3yr old boy always says at bed time: Gimme the tiny lamp. When I give him some other: "The TINY ONE..." *sigh*

 

L2m, 2-way-clip, 3-mode 1,4A XM-L, loaded with 18350! Had the R2 in this before. Vacation´s over soon and I´m eager to test this at work. This is my beater workhorse, I use it multiple times during my shift to check things in process-line.

Everyone knows the Ultrafire next to it, 980L.

Ultrafire C3 with R5 soldered in it. Circuit maybe not contacting to body properly, some flickering, gets no use (buy this with very few $$, seriously!)

 

The Tank007 E06. About the best 1xAAA clicky I have had... And finally, my trusty, dual flame Xikar Enigma, just because it has some shiny bits Smile

 

Durin this year or two, I have sold/given away at least: Sabrewolf SST-90 EDC, Fenix L0D, 4Sevens Preon Kit, iTP A3 Upgraded 1st gen, Romisen RC-C8, Solarforce L2P (flat button, not for me), some Tank single AAA light, Many general Sipik / other Cree-Zoom-clones. Maybe 30 1$ lights from eBay. My first of all LedLenser, David something, what a POS... Flat Stare

 

Well, that´s about it...

 

Seen something, bought something, got frustrated many times... For me, it seems to take time but NOW I finally have the hang of things and at least know what I want.

That is a Killer AAA and the other one is a TiFly, both are custom lights and a bit on the expensive side.
