I stripped a 160ish yr old rifle getting it ready for a  resto. Pretty lowkey excited about this one. It's the oldest, least valuable, smallest, dinkiest, rifle I've got. I can't wait.

Also, drove Sydney to Canberra and back this morning to exchange a $40 patio heater.
Seven hours of my time plus 120 litres of Diesel plus truck wear and tear... seems worth it. :salute:

Is that a black powder smooth bore? I'd like to try old rifles like that.

I never knew there were so many parts in a rifle. That diagram wouldn't look out of place in a Suzuki manual.

Booked 5 flights, 2 hotels and travel insurance.

Flights from Brisbane to Singapore then on to Phnom Penh (Cambodia) to see my Stepdaughter.

Four days later flights from Phnom Penh to Siem Reap.

Four days later back to Brisbane via Singapore again.

 

I remember being a bit of a Playstation Junkie in my younger days and playing Tomb Raider, and when the movie came out thinking Angelina Jolie wasn't bad to look at! so went to see the movie (17 years ago). Always remember seeing the tree roots growing over the temples at Ta Phrom and thinking it looked cool. Now I get to see it.

Ya wouldn't want to be around that lot in an earthquake.  H&S here would require it to be pulled down, or have people kept well away . . .

Now that's bloody nice!   Wouldn't want to pay for the fuel though, be a thirsty beast.

I've been doing weights regularly since Nov last year, hit my main target today by finishing a set of ten chest presses at 100kg. Now to build up till all four sets are at that weight & I'll be happy.

@Mister Fishfinger The diagram on the giant mouse pad is an FN FAL.
The much older rifle has nowhere near as many parts...

I've posted elsewhere about my sleep apnoea.
General lack of $ affecting me currently too.

Then this happened this morning: http://gsx1400owners.org/forum/index.php?topic=3019.0

to make that worse the :wife: keeps telling me if I sold my bike I wouldn't have these problems.  She also suggests I sell my guns, Land Rover etc and "simplify my life".  Yeah, NO.
