I think I was pretty new when Wallbuys first opened and had their 50% off Fenix lights sale.

Nobody was sure what to make of it, and that was a weird roller coaster ride, things were wild and woolly for months.

Not what we have but what we enjoy, constitutes our abundance.

My most memorable experience was when I discovered the BLF and I started to read for my favorite hobby the flashlights. I have learned many things.

Thanks ryansoh3!

Count me in please! Smile

My most memorable experiences are:

1) When I won the Sky Ray S-R5 UV flashlight from DBCstm last June 2013;
2) When I won the flashlight parts from RaceR86 also last June 2013;
3) When I successfully did my 1st Mod last August 2013 – my K40 – with the help of our local experts like TomE, rdrfronty, Sirius9, texaspyro and you. Wink

My most memorable experience on the forum was probably Bucket’s thread about how he made the Solarforce M8 finned copper pill, and then turned the mistake into an awesome matching finned pill for the Convoy C8. I also loved watching Bucket’s videos with his lathe. It seems that all the mods I want to do with lights, are going to require a lathe, so a I plan on buying a small lathe soon to try my hand at making some copper parts, and hopefully share some great pictures of them with you guys.

Not to mention, researching all the different budget lights, brought me to BLF by reading all the great reviews by Foy, relic38, the, and others.

I’d love to have this Solar Storm triple, as I have really been wanting a SRK, and would love to try and mod this light to see what it can do. I can’t find much info about the internals of this light, and I’d really like to see what the driver looks like.

I get so much information about (what else?) lights and batteries right here on BLF.
My most memorable experience was when a BLF’er actually provided me with valuable information upon request.

Lights out! That's when things get interesting...

Not sure if it’s exactly a memorable moment, but when I discovered you don’t have to spend $$$ for a high output quality flashlight it made an impression on me

You provide a lot of infos on how to mod these lights.
The most memorable events (are) when my first modded light came to life at around 220kCd,
and when i recently finished modding a 180$ Jetbeam M2S that was awesome.

My best moment was getting in on the groupbuy for the Supfire M6. It was my first triple – Wow what a cannon!! Now I need to buy a lanyard for it.

Most memorable lately has been the HP laptop battery pack threads from that e-bay seller out of Maine. Saved me some serious $$ on 18650s, and got the cells I needed for lights and USB power banks quick.

I think the surprise on my first purchases, finding out how bad Ultrafire 18650s were, then researching online and finding people into getting the most out of budget lights, without the attitudes I saw on CPF was most memorable to me. Smile

Oh, nearly missed it.. That light is on my wish list Smile

The atmosphere in this forum without moderators is unique. Best described as anarchy in the original sense (you might want to look it up...)

What hasn’t been mentioned is taking others advice to run IMR batteries!
Put simply “awesome” “Blaze of glory!”

Worth mentioning:

$5 Thurnite TI deal [wish I ordered more than 1], the Uranus Fire name lol

Last the nasty MAP scandal that prevents me from obtaining more “objects of my affection”

There are so many. Such great members, contests / giveaways that have been entertaining even without winning, many great builds, scratch build contest, a few community projects, flashlights in a block of ice.
The overall atmosphere. It encompasses all.

Most memorable moment was one recent night when I helped a young lady change her separated tire on the roadside, and gave her one of my best BLF bargains—
a DX $8 16340 light. I know it will serve her well, and at a price that did not make me hesitant to give it away.
( she was making Ted Bundy jokes as I changed the tire lol)
