So i finally managed to take some photos of all the lights i have in the house and in the display cases. (it took me nearly 4 hours to gather them together for these photos.
The below photos are roughly 85 % of all my lights i have collected over the years. Not included in the photos are the many lights in the cars, the RV, at work, in the Garage, on keys, head-lights, etc. Also not included are the big spot lights. I counted this collection, and added roughly the numbers of lights i have elsewhere but not in the photos below, estimated roughly 320 lights. maybe i should sell some off.  :o

Holy cow!!  Awesome collection! I thought I was bad at half that amount of lights.  I am seriously considering selling off some of mine since 95% of them never get used.  Not that I would ever sell 95% of them :D

i just added a Shadow JM35 MT-G2 to that collection yesterday.  ;D  (it arrived in the mail from a order 3 weeks back.) i thought about selling off some of my unused ones, duplicates, etc. too soon, as with 320 + lights the collection can be burdening.
I will be taking at least 15 or 20 of these and modding them, and using them for free giveaways to attendees at a local Flashlight weekend meet i will be hosting this spring.

Nice!  Flashlight weekend meet??  That'll be a blast for sure.  What part of the country are you located in?

EDIT: I think I know...Photon Fest 23 at Milky's??

Edit 2:  Hmm...I give up. Can't find any info on one this fall.  This time last year it was PF22 so I figured a PF23.

I live in Ontario Canada, ( roughly 2.5 hours drive from Buffalo NY border at Niagara Falls)  The Photon Festival failed to materialize this year in NJ i heard, and thought about getting one started/offered here north of the border.
it will be a full weekend event, held at a local RV camping park, with unlimited special discount available campsites, hotel nearby. Some of the plans in place will be a Beam shoot-out night with photos, many light giveaways, etc. This first event i will be providing a free Breakfast cook up, Lumens sphere testing, photo shoot gear, beam shoot-out equipment, all the good stuff. My entire collection and mod gear will be on display and used for the event as i will have my RV at the park and supply all the tables, chairs, power for charging batteries, camera gear, etc.

Holy smokes!  You are in Canada and drive all the way to NJ for the Photon Fests?  Much respect!

Your event sounds absolutely amazing!  I hope you have a great turn out for it.  :)

I started counting from my nightstand, where I found 10 flashlights. Seven in the kitchen. Three EDC lights (one on belt holster, two on "man purse" I carry commuting to work), one on my wife´s nightstand. Some more scattered around the house. Five flashlights on my person at work (four on duty belt and one attached to uniform),  two in my helmet, few on my gear bag and some in my locker. I did not count the exact number, but it fits into 30-50 range.

I was forced to count em up the other day. 135 with a few on the way. Every light has cells installed and is ready to go. Plus some 27 cells in a 12ga Shotshell case, backup's. :)

That's close to the number of lights I have but WAY more cells than I have!  That is a lot of batteries, bud! :D

Not sure exactly how many, but over a hundred.  I can see about 70 from where I'm sitting, and that doesn't count two boxes worth and unfinished projects and some stragglers.

I would estimate that I have over 100. I have never counted. Maybe one day when everyone is out of my hair I will compile them and take a picture.

I tried to start a spreadsheet at one time to organize them, list tints, whether they had been modded...etc., but that only lasted about 2 weeks before it died.
