Collection Photos
« on: September 01, 2007, 05:23:28 PM »
Post in this thread your entire collection (complete lights only, parts shots don't count).  Here's mine as of today:

Full Collection:


McGizmo Ti PDs and a Ti PD Mule, part of my main EDC rotation:



My three favorites - McGizmo Ti Prototypes (two Ti 27 LTs w/yaesumofo Ti bezel rings and a Ti PD-27 (note the threaded bezel ring, not incorporated into the production run):


The pride of my Bulk collection, a pair of Ti Chameleons:


Where my heart is - the brass Cub.  My all-time favorite Bulk light.  These four are from the original run, three sporting rare no-lanyard-hole CR123 clone bodies custom made by Arsmachina:


A couple of recent run McGizmo Ti PD-27s with a rare Ti Original Orb (my sexiest light  :D):


Love these guys - alot.  On left: Stainless Steel Gatlight V2.  Or right: Ti Gatlight V3, SN 112:


Say what you will about Fenix, but their debut run of 300 stainless steel Fenix L1+'s were great lights!  Here's five of them:


Superflashlight III, one modded to Cree by cmacclei (Mack).  These are built like absolute tanks:


Rare brass Goldbird (incredible knurling), MilkySpit/Leef Gotham, and NEOCA Wood from Peu:


Throw monsters - Lumapower DX-1 bare AL prototype and Mack's famous "The Torch":


The Destroyer III from Milkyspit and a Surefire M4, both sporting SW01 "Fatty" Tailcaps:

Thanks.  Yep, I have definitely thinned it and improved it immensely, though I'm still going in that direction (fewer lights and better quality).  I will be selling a chunk of rows 1 & 4, a couple from row 2, but NOTHING from row 3, where all the big timers are.  :D

I love shots like this.  They prove I'm still (somewhat) sane.  :thumbup:

Troy-
Nice Boston center channel. VRC or the VRMC?

Oh and nice lights too.  :thumbup: I don't think it's fair that you have 4 brass cubs and I have none. Share the love dude! :D

16 from the left.... LOL Griff.

Impressive Troy.  My collection is very small at the moment, less than 20, maybe 30 lights.  But the quality is there.  Pretty sure most if not all are made in the USA. (With the exception of 1 Fenix L1D that has been modded with a Q2h Cyan emitter.)

The Maxabeam and Barn Burner rule the roost.  Waiting on the new Ti King to come from Hawwai.  I got a few McLuxes, 3 cubs, 1 chammie, several Arcs, Torch, MiniMini HID, some SF's.  But no pic of them all!

THAT is an impressive collection!!! WOW!!

I have a few lights. I am about quality, and not quantity. And I am now completely hooked on McGizmo lights too.  :D

So am I.  Shelf #3 is worth more than $14,000.  You'll see more Shelf #3 lights in the future and less of Shelf 1, 2, and 4.   :D
