Love it. Sent it to Dean, who used to be a shooter until it became too difficult. (I've never been a shooter, I barely know which end of the gun to point away from myself. Having said that some of Victoria's gun laws regarding paintballing are ludicrous. YMMV).

... goes to an auction that does not exist any more. What was it?

Re: That link...
Darn, looks like it got cancelled. It was for 5 brass cases (bullet cases, that is), and the seller went to great lengths to emphasize that they contained no explosive properties whatsoever ... great lengths.
Inluding Monty Python.
Then he included an entire e-mail correspondence between himself and the eBay support team, trying to pin down exactly what it would take for him to be able to auction those items. Near the end of the page, there's a section for questions from buyers - there were a few shown, and a link titled "View all 100 questions" - most of which seemed to be either humourous or praise for the ad. There was also a very cool disclaimer (wish I'd saved it somewhere ... darn).
