Finally

Postby Chopper » 11 Feb 2015 00:18

It must be at least 5 years I've been looking for this. It cost me $20 I don't have but it was a real f*ck it moment.

This simple oar has been eluding me so long it had become my nemesis. At last.......... behold the splendor of Recondo's oar.

Well done mate :)
When confronted by a difficult problem you can solve it more easily by reducing it to the question. How would the Lone Ranger handle this?

Awesome!!! Had the same feeling when I managed to get a Heavy Metal with original microphone a few weeks ago, bought it from a non-collectors childhood lot so no worries about repro :D

I nearly pulled the trigger on the oar myself.
It was only going to be a spare so I left it for someone else to get.
Glad to see it was a BFTB member that nabbed it.
Not here for a long time, just here for a good time.

Nicely done, with items like this you've just got to push the boat out & cough up the readies.

Ah, yes, an oar. Very useful. Unfortunately I bought a new rifle so I will have to sneak this one past the war office. So keep it hush, hush, boys. Also nabbed a RAM saddle bag so I have completed one with AF parts too. Not a bad day.

BTW, anyone else have trouble embedding youtube videos?

Take off the s from https. Then at end of random string after watch?v= , for example Ezc4HdLGxg4 as per URL above, if you then get a ? or similar delete it and everything after it, so the underlined section of Ezc4HdLGxg4?=campaignOCDrU54rlz would get zapped. doesn't always work tho, but that's the gist.

Hi Mark, yeh I was having problems with Youtube.. removing the s (from the https: bit) from the address code thingy (sorry don't know the tech' word for it) seems to make it work just fine for me too

I tried that, didn't work. Ah well, not the end of the world. Now I just have to wait for me bits to arrive. :D
