    As it's apparent, I'm not a gun fan, but I appreciate the history around the older weapons.

    BTW, the article actually dates it a bit earlier then WWII, but definitely a Luger.

    Koala survives 16-kilometre Adelaide Hills journey trapped behind 4WD wheel




    A koala has been released back into the wild after enduring a 16-kilometre nightmare clinging onto the suspension of
    a four-wheel drive in the Adelaide Hills.


    Don Bigham, from Fauna Rescue of South Australia's Koala Hotline, said they believed the marsupial crawled into the
    wheelwell where it attached itself to the suspension last weekend.

    It then found itself being driven for 16 kilometres through winding, hilly terrain.

    The driver was reportedly flagged down by other motorists but failed to find anything wrong.

    It was not until he stopped that he heard crying under the car and called the Koala Rescue Hotline.


    Tough Bugger

    In a similar vein to an earlier story ...



    "Bear Grylls", an Adelaide Hills koala that survived being hit by a car at 100 kilometres per hour.It became stuck in the car's grille and was not discovered for another 10 kilometres later when the driver arrived home.

    A lot of the weapons handed in were legally owned before the govt changed the firearms regulations to only single or twin barreled shotguns, no semi auto rifles, only bolt action repeater rifles with a magazine that held no more than 5 rounds of ammo and all weapons had to be kept in a gun safe, it was always nearly impossible to get a license for a handgun/revolver

    Legally owned and licensed auto and pump action shotguns, Auto and semi auto rifles and rifles that could hold more than 5 rounds of ammo became illegal to own and had to be handed into the police

    I had a .22 rifle that i had owned for over 20 years that had a tube magazine under the barrel that held 13 rounds of ammo, i handed it in as it had become a illegal weapon to own
