    Thanks everyone.
    @John - No, but they are m4. I might as well toss them, but it's important to have something rattling around inside a box to justify keeping it.
    @Fatality - Slow down!:D This update was to keep you satisfied another few weeks.

    My rule of thumb is to buy in 3s.
    One to lose, one to break, and one to keep.

    For lawnmowers it's: One to run over a stump, one to run over a brick, one to keep alive with parts from the others.

    It doesn't work that way in Bubbaland. You can get your cricket bat through customs, but it's seriously underpowered here...:D

    @Fisher - Do you keep planting the stumps too?

    No worries. The ball and wickets can be used following the bat. :lol:

    OT: You've never seen the damage a bat does, have you?

    Well I have first hand, and Cheaps, its not nice, I accidently broke a friends elbow and arm in 6 places with one swing of it, joke that went wrong..

    This is really ghetto mod although far to much detail and effort into cutting and fixing together makes it into less of a ghetto mod..

    You say its going to be covered in glue. Does that mean you can't get any hardware in or out??

    And this forum member wants to bring a cricket bat to TEXAS? This is a state that invented gun racks.

    "Who brings a knife to a nuke fight?" - ecookie for that reference

    Fallout 3?

    Anyway, about bats, yes they can get pretty nasty (projectile weapons aside, of course).
    I was batting once, bat slipped from my hands (I'm really bad) and rocketed into the guy at Silly Point. I believe it was 3 ribs and the good arm.

    @Rich999 - It comes apart in 3 pieces. The computer bits bolt onto the center frame.

    Please say it wasn't a ball into his more masculine parts??

    @jhanlon303, I also have a rather nice collection of guns as well, I persue the great country sports you see in my spare time, when not modding of course, and so I could legally bring those over if you want. I'll bring the .277, that will be fun. I don't think dad will let me bring his guns he used while in the special forces that he still has.:rolleyes:.
