    Wife is out and I have the place to myself for the evening. How do you guys usually chill solo at the crib when you have it all to yourself?

    I think I'll do some reading, drinking, Glock Talking, then later tunes, more drinking, and clean up some of my guns.

    Put a bulletproof vest on and shoot myself in the head.

    Write. Draw. Make music. Design computer programs.

    Play video games. Surf the internet for pictures of cats.

    I'm alone all the time.
    I shoot a lot (home range).
    There's a lot to do around the place but I manage to keep putting off most work for another day.:)

    Loading/Reloading.
    Watch a movie.
    Spend some time at the range.
    Take a short drive over to the farm and watch Bambi and friends in the fields.

    I actually don't watch TV at all when I'm alone, only when I'm hanging out with my wife. When I'm alone I usually work--either on actual work, or on one of my hobbies

    Clean your guns some other time when you have not been drinking. Guns and booze don't mix then do what I do when my wife and kids are gone enjoy the peace and quite.

    I usually work on something around the house, whether it needs it or not. This week I installed a new motion sensor light, cleaned the garage, scooped the dog poop, lubed the garage door, and set up my new garage fridge.

    This made me laugh. An honest answer, which I can appreciate (and possibly relate to).

    alone, the last thing I think about is TV. I spend my time working/playing with welders, wood working, electrical gadgets (CCTV cameras/DVR/Solar lights/Bird feeder (8 footer with "features"). Stuff. (some computer, but not much when I'm alone)

    I love to read. I'll put several hours into a good book no problem if the house is quiet.
