4,000 Post Give-Away! Now Closed! (Available to Non-US / Non-Canadian Members Only!)

I have thoroughly enjoyed the last couple of years on BLF and have especially enjoyed the generosity of many BLF members here.  So in keeping with BLF tradition, and celebrating the fact that my well-known Defiant Super Thrower thread hit the 1,000th post mark this weekend along with my 4,000th post, I am giving away a brand new Defiant Super Thrower BUT with a twist!  Since US & Canadian residents have already enjoyed the unfair opportunity of obtaining this light (while the innocent international members stand by and drool), I am only allowing non-US / non-Canadian residents to enter this give-away so that one of them may also enjoy this light.  I am also not allowing to participate those international members who have been fortunate enough to have US members ship them this light (sorry Gords1001 & MrsDNF).  I realize that there may be international members that I am unaware of having obtained a Defiant Super Thrower, so I'm working on the honor system here. 


- You must have joined BLF on or before 9/8/2013.
- Only 1 post per member please (more than one post will disqualify you)
- US or Canadian Members Posting anything in this thread will be disqualified from future Give-Aways (same goes for international members who already have this light)
- Post/Comment # is your number
- You may post anything you wish (but remember you can only post once)
- Winner will be selected via random.org on 9/23/2013 8:30AM EST (GMT -4 hours) (or as close as my schedule permits)
- I will cover all shipping costs, but I won't be responsible if the shipment is lost.
- Light will be removed from the plastic blister pack for shipping, but will include the batteries.
- Winner will be notified via PM and must respond within 48 hours with their address, or a new winner will be chosen.
- If random.org picks a post number of an ineligible entry, I will have random.org choose another post number until it chooses one that is eligible.

[EDIT]: I realize that some users do not list their location.  Please use the honor system!  I will know when you PM me your shipping address anyway!  Also, your post count does not matter.  Anyone joined prior to 9/8/2013 is eligible.  [/END OF EDIT].

The light will be in original, un-modded form and comes with 3 alkaline batteries.  Be aware that this light does have a plastic reflector, plastic lens (AR Glass lens available at CNQG now), and is single mode only.  For any other details about this light please see the original thread linked above. 

Here is a photo of the light:

Thanks & have fun!

Giveaway is now closed and a winner has been selected:

And the winner is . . . . . . . . . . . . .


Post #53!  Congratulations fyesilova!


In the unlikely event that no one enters the give-away, I will keep the light for myself.

Nice give away.  I don't qualify, but I think it is really cool that you are offering this to members who don't have access to them.  Congrats on 4K!

EDIT: The congrats stands even though I will never qualify again Smile

You are very considerate of this little boy in the corner shop.


There's no doubt I'd turn this into a MT-G2 baby if I get my hands on it.

You are the light of the world. Like a city on a hill, you cannot be hidden.
People do not light a lamp and then hide it away, instead they put it where it gives lig

Sweet glowing lumens of the generous humans!

Post anything we want, huh? I’ll have to check with the central bureaucracy if that’s allowed without a 247-13. If so, you’ll still have to file for a blanket variance for us, temporarily declaring this to be a racetrack, casino or other house of worship.

(Just watched Futurama. Sorry. :P)

I’m in, thanks for the giveaway.

Congrats on 4000 posts.

Usually I don’t participate in giveaways due to them all using Li-ion batteries (or being US only) but this is one I can use.

Good luck to everyone.
