    Billy , Where to find them ??

    Hey guys, after a decent old school billy as my new version one from H and F decided it didn't like the heat I was throwing into it, so I was after one of the old ones that are alot thicker. But cant seem to source them, can anyone recall where they got there's from. Cheers

    Mitre 10 sell some pretty good blue enamel stuff. I have a couple of the Billys and they are all good after 3-4 years

    I saw some pretty grunty ones at the army disposal on K Rd the other day. Want me to wander up on my lunch break and get a couple of snaps?

    Try a military surplus shop, they usually have some real old heavy duty ones, I have bought a couple of good ones from them in the past

    Never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience.

    The stainless ones aren't too heavy and less likely to burn through. I rate them. Plus you won't get Alzheimer's from all those nasty aluminium ions floating around lol

    I like titanium billies because they are more tacticool.
