    Other hobbies

    Obviously guns are one of our favorite past times, just curious what other hobbies follow gun nuts are into.

    Mine tend to change up every few years, but generally center around fabricating, mechanical, motorized things. Currently I'm into R/C vehicles, mainly 1/10 scale, scale off road crawlers, and trail runners. I've been helping 2 different venues, to establish dedicated crawling, and trailing accommodations. One is Frank Merry park in Dunkirk, and the other is at the Carl Scott disc golf course in Yorktown.

    We have 6 organized events scheduled for Yorktown this summer.

    I change things up as the years go by. In the past I have done:

    bicycling, triathlons, running, woodworking.

    Currently I am doing a major home renovation of which I am 3 years into what I hope is a 5 year project. Though I do enjoy the work, I will be glad when the big stuff is finished.

    I also canoe and would like to take up kayaking at some point hopefully when the reno is done.

    I also have a mountain bike that I'd like to ride some.

    One thing that has been constant in my life since my freshman year in college is fitness. I have stayed the course in staying fit and taking care of my health. I figure if I lose that, nothing else really matters.

    And I recently took up drinking bourbon.

    And cars! I have had gasoline in my veins since I was a little kid building models.

    Working.. I genuinely enjoy working. I'll do post time jobs just for fun. Now im helping run a growing business on my spare time with my fiancee. I read a book a week or so. I live learning new trades or crafts. Currently im making a set of grips for my cz without any idea what I'm doing. I'm on version 3. Lol. I am taking up fishing this summer. I hope I have the time. It sounds so appealing.

    Goes hand in hand with firearms, but reloading in the winter. Dont reload much, if at all, in the summer.
    Once summer hits, i enjoy gardening(edible garden/veggies and fruits) and taking the boat out and cruising and/or fishing. I also just enjoy relaxing in the pool and listening to tunes while enjoying a Yuengling or twelve.

    I have a real problem with hobbies.
    I cycle through them pretty quick.

    Ham radio
    Guns
    Computers (I'm in IT)
    Kayaking
    Camping
    Hiking
    Hunting
    3d printing
    Gaming
    Just started bullet reloading
    Kites (big ass kites)
    Lock picking
    Biking
    Skating
    Regular pipe and cigar smoking
    A little wood working
    Juggling
    Disc golf
    Drone piloting



    I tend to be really heavy I to one or a couple for several months and then I switch to a few others and just kind if keep rotating through them.

    Right now it's heavy guns and ham radio.
    I'm researching building an AR, not because I have use for one, but bc I really just want to build one. Also I'm currently studying for my extra ham radio exam that I'll be taking on the 18th.

    Plus I'm thinking I want to try competition shooting. Not bc I'm an amazing shot, bit bc it looks and sounds like fun.

    Be careful grasshopper. One AR build can lead to many...

    Most of my hobbies are gun related like restoring surplus rifles that were sporterized, reloading, bullet casting and powder coating. I shoot high end airguns. Other hobbies would be camping and foreign currency collecting. I also collect and refurbish Coleman lanterns.

    I write music. And have also been a published poetry and magazine article writer, since 1986.

    I also spend a great deal of time with my two precious little "lap dogs", Delilah and Maggie May.

    And I 'piddle around' with photography.....
