So on "another" forum... folks brought up the question on which flashlight for EDC (everyday carry).
This thread brought up lots of "talk" about what folks carry.
I'm not one for talking without doing some walking... Meaning let's do some side by side comparisons.

NEW Location: we are teaming up with the folks from Candle Power Forum to provide an unique looking into light technology!
1) address and directions
20245 SE 192nd St, Renton Washington
2) times (when does it start...)
Still working on the time. It will be probably after 6. We have the building as long as we want.
3) food? I went through some older threads and it talked about food, etc... if that's the case do you do donations? people just bring food?
We have had a potluck in the past. A friend and I normally get hamburgers and hotdogs. Then have others bring salads, chips, desert, and such. Soft drinks, etc. Donations would be fine to help cover the cost of the burgers and such.
4) cost? any cost associated.
The people who own the party barn let us use it for free. Mike has been generous each time and has given them a gift of flashlights. They really appreciate the lights and we always clean up the place, so they are happy to let me use it again.
Bring every flashlight you own. Maglights to all the high tech stuff.
We'll break up into groups like EDC (everday carry) to home or car... Cost and of course... SHTF (sh*t hit the fan) to whatever.
No prizes but a good avenue for those deciding what flashlight to get. So put it on the calendar and I'll see you then!
I do have to say I might have the brightest spotlight for under $100 (pocket size). Let's see if someone has something brighter in about the same size package/cost.
PS if you have connections to vendors... let's do it! I'll call around and see if they can come out!
I chose this location as it's relatively close to major highways (I-5, I-405 and Hwy 167), it's far away from homes, is not gated closed, has parking spaces and space to spread out, has bathrooms and tables.
No handling of firearms.
No showing of firearms.
No weapon mounted lights (you can detach them but no firearms).
If it looks like a firearm - no go. Only flashlights. I plan on inviting the Kent PD to showcase what they have for duty gear.
