    I was unable to resist Baldbobs suggestion to get the MSR Pocket Rocket and Primus EtaPower 1l pot. On receiving the Pocket Rocket I figured I could go one better and also bought a MSR Micro Rocket (pictured). The two stoves have identical output etc but the Micro is smaller and lighter.
    Fuck me the pot certainly makes for quick boiling of water.

    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Cooked bacon and choritzo on it last night. Very useful control on the Micro Rocket. The Pocket Rocket belongs to R93 so is unused.

    The Micro is more compact and lighter (I doubt by much either way)

    Someone has to pull us out of this recession right? Just don't tell my wife.

    Oh and NZ retailers, pull your head out. I got stuff from the US, faster, cheaper and far more professionally (with manners) than any of you could be bothered.

    Another sad disgruntled kiwi home shopper. Not all of them are like that. Soon you will be dehydrating your gun powder to save more weight.

    Oh far from sad. I have a bunch of new toys to play with and I got then cheap and fast. If an outfit in Oregon can send me a box of gear twice as fast as one in Nelson you know where my money will go again. I like to buy from kiwis but I also don't like getting bent over, and slowly to boot.

    Where did you get the MSR stove from my alpine stove takes up too much room and really need to downsize stoves to drop weight in my pack. Kind of reviewing what I took with me last time I hiked into a hunting area and how I can downsize, decrease weight etc with not so bulky items.

    +1 for buying things online/overseas. Far better prices, quicker shipping - I can get bike parts from the UK in under a week for 9.5$ shipping yet retailers here in nz charge 40-50% more, charge 9$ for shipping and it takes almost a week.
