I rarely, very rarely, have a OMFG moment

I rarely, very rarely, have a OMFG moment,
and I mainly rant only to my GF and a few selected others ( shut up Doug).
But when I saw this posting on Soliders systems I about lost my mind.
look at the price of this eye searing set 
$590.00
Lets break that down
The E1B ( it could be a 80 lume light or 110, they have it listed different on different pages)
$139.00
The Surefire pen
$129.00 
That is a total of $268.00
SOOOOOO,  for only $322.00 more, 
you get a wacky paint job, a wood box and 
the exclusivity of there only being 1800 sets in the whole world.
Is it me, is this a joke from the fun loving guys at Suefire?
I have at least 10 surefire flashlights around the house, so I am not a hater,
I am just flummoxed that 1800 people would shell out over double the value of the items, 
for a different color anodizing and a $3.00 wood box
I know this has nothing to do with Airsoft, except that a lot of us older guys use RS accessories a lot.
I just had to ask the question here, has surefire jumped the shark or what?
Please let me know your thoughts on the matter 

Until tomorrow
Stay thirsty my friends

  1. Hmmmm..... Let me see. The way I see it: All flashlights are the same color when you're trying to find them in the dark, all pens look the same til you turn on a light in order to write something. Ink is ink so unless you're writing in a vacuum. I can't see paying that for "just a pen". I understand the whole "pride in ownership" thing but my commemoratives from that company are my 6P that I bought when it first came out and 2 1st. gen SF shotgun fore ends. All are still working and serviceable.
    I just can't see it.
    I also couldn't resist, either!!
    Maybe I can win one in a drawing or something!
