    Countless, and I mean *countless* items...

    However, I can tell you the *first* thing I bought as a result of these forums (fora?) and that would be a Huntlight FT-01XSE from JS Burly himself :)

    While not a part of my EDC anymore, I still have it, and still carry it on occasion.

    I'm thinking of stealing the EDCF logo and using the laser marker at work to microengrave it into the head mwahaha...

    My first purchase after arriving here and feeling at home was a teeny tiny Ti pen from Jon. It's perfect in its beauty and feel and it writes, too!

    And then I realized that Lugsalot hit it right on the head. And I wonder if it will _ever_ be enough and I just know the answer. <sigh>

    Let me start by saying, I was not a member of any of the other forums mentioned. I was wearing a old school LM Supertool, and out of the habit of a pocket knife. I got a new MiniGrip, updated a 6P with a G2Led, a couple Atwood's and generally starting updating all my old gear. slow process, new city--no job.

    I have made three purchases and now sincethe number of posts has been increased to 50 posts I cannot purchase anything. That sucks, but I guess someday I will have 50 posts. I typically only read the posts and never reply or post but since I need the posts to make 50 here I am. I hope this post counts.

    TAD Gear Stealth Hoodie. A thread here got me interested in it and then I had to get one to see what the fuss was about. (I'm not sorry I did, though it made me buy a Ranger Hoodie as well. But that's cool, 'cause I like it even better. The Stealth is nice and all, but the Ranger is great!)

    Other than that, it's hard to say. I've bought a lot of things, and while this fine forum has certainly contributed to my motivation, the sad truth is that I would have bought most of that stuff anyway. It would have just taken me a bit longer, I guess. And there's also stuff this forum has made me NOT buy. E.g. I wanted a Spec Ops THE Wallet, until I found out, that my driver's licence wouldn't fit in it.

    And that's what it's all about, isn't it? Sharing experiences, getting opinions, finding out about the details etc. so you can make informed decisions. Sometimes you can see from the pics and opinions that the thing you wanted probably won't work for you after all. Unfortunately, though, sometimes the only way to satisfy your curiosity is to fire up the Paypal account.

    Ok I am resurrecting this thread because I saw an Al notebook cover I didn't know I needed.
