new find

Hello all. The name is Paul, and just found this place searching for info on my new find

Got my first slr in the 90's. One of the "other guys" a EOS... well that got stolen on new years 99, and the next year I scored a nice K1000 from a yard sale..$20.. I've been a fan sence... well film use has come and gone and haven't got a ton of use from the old girl till the last year when I started teaching my kids about film... Well yesterday I'm walking around another garage sale, and open a little bag.... what do I find? A nice old Pentax! Came with two lens, and at first glance I thought I finely found a tele lens for my old K. ( you don't want to know what I paid. ). Well get it home, and I find its a Honeywell Pentax sp1000. So now to research what I have!!!!
