    The proper response to this is, "how many purses/shoes do you need?"

    Might want to duck afterwards, though.

    Yeah, that would be Pandoras box of drama. You can't win an argument with your partner!

    ha! very true.

    Sometimes you can get a draw, though.

    She's already starting to "see the light" so to speak. I've been trying to put together a little keychain edc for her and she's finally willing to carry it (after borrowing my SAK, light, etc. many times). I think this was the last thing she needed to push her over the edge. The ti3 will probably end up on her keychain after I pick up something new. Still can't over-indulge, but I think I have a little more leeway now...

    There are no Draws, only losses and big losses. Pick and choose your place to battle. I highly recommend the separate checking accounts every month allowance to avoid these kind of battles.

    I like this system, I get toys and the wife gets to go to Conventions.... (She takes me to those as well, so it is a win win for me.)

    Here's a use of an EDC light that was surprisingly effective...
    The wife and I went to a concert recently. Got there early enough to be near the front. The place got packed pretty quick. Shoulder to shoulder with lots of folks and we couldn't hardly move. Not exactly my scene. So when she informed me that it was time to go, I was ready. I took my lanyard (attached to my keys) and placed it around my neck. Grabbed the pocket torch in one hand. Grabbed her wrist with the other. Shining that light around (~280 lm), combined with an authoritative "Excuse me, make a hole, please. Step out of the way, sir", people were suddenly VERY accommodating. Interesting social phenomenon: If you have a tucked in shirt with a lanyard around your neck, people assume you are an employee of whatever establishment you happen to be standing in. If you also have a flashlight, you are obviously security. :cool:

    Used my NC MT10C every night since Saturday checking for skunks and "landmines" while taking care of my friends' dogs.

    As a part of my job in the army I work on all of the radio systems in the trucks and armored vehicles.
    And when I need to fix something in the night it makes a huge different, or when I need to find the hole that some cables go into so I can put the gps antena from the outside I put my innova xs flashlight inside the hole and then the hole just shine from the other side, save me almost an hour in the dark.

    Last Weekend I had to set this up in different places in the middle of now where at 5 in the morning.

    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    I used the Fenix HL50 and ZL SC52 that I always carry anyway to get the job done.
    An assist was provided by the Olight S1 stuck with the magnet on the side of the tower mount to illuminate the tower once we got it into the air to make sure it was straight and to assist in aiming the UHF beam!

    Good Times,just myself,my helper and many Bull Frogs!
