    It is safe to say that everyone on here is into guns and shooting, but what else?
    What are your other hobbies and things that you enjoy doing?
    Here is a little about myself.

    I love to hike. The wife and I hike well over 100 miles per year. Last year we hiked a little over 60 miles through the Rockies in 6 days. I love being back in the mountains and knowing that nobody else is around.

    I am also a gym rat. I started lifting in Jr High and have been lifting pretty much ever since. I am a personal trainer and enjoy training, but I am not training anyone at this time. I don't have time.

    I also enjoy building Jeeps and crawling trails. I have built over 20 CJs and multiple other Jeep models. I am in negotiations with a gentleman right now on his CJ-6. It has always been one of my favorite models and they are not easy to come by now days. I am hoping to talk him out of it over the next couple of months.

    Other than that, I just like relaxing in the mountains, or on the beach.

    I also love to travel.

    How about you? What is you non shooting hobbies and enjoyment?

    two motorcycles, get more miles/year than my Jeep.
    sand dunes (off road) with 4x4.
    music shows, mostly blues, but also good artists in any genre except hip hop. i am too old for that, and do not enjoy it.
    Samantha Fish ten days ago, in Chicago. hopefully (if i can get good tickets) Beth Hart in October, Indianapolis. maybe something this summer as well.
    last July, Halestorm, Shinedown, Devour The Day and Red Sun rising. maybe another festival this year.
    love Michigan's UP. spend as much time up there as i can. the Shipwreck coast is beautiful.

    most enjoyable, most importantly, spoil grandchildren. #1 job!

    Raising my boy has become my new favorite hobby, but I also enjoy weight lifting, fishing, hunting, & off-roading.

    Besides working, and shooting, I enjoy drinking freedom, and doing yardwork with my feathered kids help.

    Besides firearms -

    I used to do some woodworking. I've made a few things and given them away, as gifts.

    I was contracted to make a bedroom set for an old friend, for his daughter.

    I built it. He finished it.
    His daughter destroyed it, when she (accidentally) set the house on fire.

    Camping.

    All of the above has almost halted, due to health reasons and my wife's health.

    Now, I mainly do chemistry work.

    I convert bourbon onto urine.

    Reading, writing, martial arts, exercising (to try and stave off the ravages of aging ;) ), cigars, motorcycles, comparing and judging the attributes of different whiskies and IPA's, adventuring with the local granddaughter, Movies, collecting hats and knives ... repeat as necessary. :)

    Sometimes these pursuits occupy so much of my time that I wonder how I ever found time to work (before retirement). ;)

    I also love music. We go to a lot of concerts. I am getting the wife Linkin Park tickets now as a surprise. I love the big shows, but find myself enjoying the small shows more and more these days.
    My son and his friends left Oklahoma around 7 pm last night and drove to Gulf Shores AL for Hangout fest. They arrived around 10 am this morning. He called and said "You should have come with us....".

    I hate this question because I never have an answer.

    I work a lot.
    I sleep.
    I mind the yard.

    I don't have much free time, and even when I do, I'm too tired to do anything but watch a movie, read or float in the pool.

    Damn, good thing I don't have to fill out a dating service profile any time soon. I'm a real yawner.

    Work, golf, fly airplanes, get drunk, and run from the throngs of women that chase me.

    Not all at the same time.
