    I was going to browse their site this evening. It looks like they are closed for good. That is a shame.

    <<<
    LIGHTHOUND IS CLOSED
    We would like to thank you for allowing us to serve you all these wonderful years.
    Please note that all orders placed have shipped.>>>

    From the wording of it, it seems like they are closing shop for good, at least on internet orders.

    Well they did have some cool stuff. Maybe they are being bought out by someone else? The last I saw they had a Christmas in July sale with flashlights at 20% off.

    That's completely odd because I was on their site yesterday looking at some stuff. When I saw this thread I had to go check their site. Wow is all I can say since I was thinking of buying a few things from them. And another good business gone.

    Keith, same here. I looked at it yesterday, and it was fine. Then late last night, it was closed. I thought, they are just working on the site. But then the wording of it, made me realize it was a long term closing. No warning, no huge sales, just out of the blue, they close. It is strange.
