What you all are missing here is that this is not a name in England. It is the name from Louisiana with heavy French, Indian, and Creole, influences on the pronunciation. Boowee is how it has been pronounced for generations. This is not unknown. It is well known. David Bohwee is not Jim Boowee and ...

Any of the major brands should have something that fills your needs...Surefire, Streamlight, Fenix, Inova, 4Sevens, Olight...etc. Check over at Candlepower Forums if you really want the gory details on any light that strikes your fancy. Maglights just don't cut it anymore for serious work....too big...

Re: Old Forum Members: Where Are They These Days?

I do clean up and shape the bottom about once a month and trim the 'stache once a week. It has been "belly button" long a few times but I prefer...
