No time for spuds these days. I've got a Jeep to work on and a fiance to marry in a couple months. I keep busy and still have fun though.

Indeed I have.

Here's what it looks like these days by the way. This one is at D-Day with most of my unit aboard, preparing for a parade. I'm obviously driving.

No, that's one of the people from my unit. My fiancé wants to try paintball but we haven't had a chance to yet.

Seems there's a bit of interest of late in "old" airgun technology. This is one that's always held my interest.

Bit less common than the Girandoni as well. :wink:

Enjoy. :)

... yet the valve mechanism on the face of it seems quite similar.

On another note, zombie defence win :D

It is cold here

We are in Central Oregon this fine spring day.

Correction Winter day.. Woke up to -4 F this morning. The windows are frosted up. Where the West Coast had nice weather most of the winter when the US was in major storms, we finally got cold weather.

Hadn't seen this until today.
It's not completely off-topic; there are some sprinkler valve cannons in the end. :)

Slightly on-topic, but I learned today that after about 5 years in the hobby I still have those days when the pilot valves still just hiss until the chamber is empty, the pipe doesn't fit into what you thought it would, and you end the day annoyed, sweaty, and missing chunks of meat from your fingers.

Oh yeah, and I'm broke again. This is just like high school! :D
