Must hurt like buggery ...


Sort of like a British shooting stick?

Speaking of shooting, can you imagine the x-ray guys at the terminal when they see the revolver cylinder stake in your carry on?

Cheers,
Tom

I think a soldier with a piece of aluminum protruding from his posterior may cause more interest at security......

Five shot revolvers are more compact than your standard six shot ... they're used mainly as a carry gun. Noticed this five shot revolver S&W which would be great for Jonesey.

hey fellows, isn't this a family forum...allow me to pull out my nerf hammer over the "International Rubber Duckie Incident"...being a person who listens carefully to the creative muse, i have many times learned the hard way that this message goes out to more than one...if you have the idea, be guaranteed that there are others that are listening also...if the message only went out to one, our world would be a dreary place...the hard part is letting go of the notion that it is your idea exclusively & take joy in the creative expression of others...nerf hammer goes away...that is why the kite stake family was photographed yesterday...g

Folks keep talking about the rev family ... is that what you mean?

BTW: It's a little known fact that the people who track weather patterns watch this web site. Seems that the weather conditions inversely affect the number of posts (weather down = posts up), but directly affects the level of humor displayed. If you check the weather on the British continent, you'll probably find that it's not only pants right now but has been for awhile ... thus, the number of posts and the level of humor(?) that is being displayed. Folks in the snow bound countries call it "cabin fever" ... I think the Brits just call it normal.

Shooting Stick! You mean that wide end is not used to keep it from going into the ground? They should include instructions with those things.

As to the pink handled revolver ... it seemed the perfect accessory for a Walter Mitty pirate like Jonesey!

<Insert sound of door slaming>

Cheers,
Tom

I think the next person to mention the F word should donate $50 to Amnesty International. But then again I am a grumpy old man.

So let me see if I have caught up with all this nurf speak; If I understand right I should immediately go our and market a range of dollies with stakes sticking out? Not sure I see it catching on to be honest. ;)

Tell me if I have it right in the taxi Jonesey will you

Can i just ask, is there a considered wisdom for what to attach random stuff onto the end of stakes with?? Thinking about some of the plastic/ rubber tops some people have. Is araldite or some other resin adhesive up to the job?

Well here is the official 'MartyJuggles' juggling ball kite stake, only one of it's kind and currently patent pending in the UK, Europe and America (in case of legal wranglings at a later date).. . .

So, this is what i'm now using - felt like it was time i got a bit more creative than a bright orange sand stake . . . or a piece of driftwood for that matter

:P
