    Besides guns, what other things are you good at?

    For me, I am really good with computer repair and technology. I have learned through trial and error since I was 14. I am now 29. I never went to school for one day to learn about computers and now I am working on getting my A+ Certification. I got really involved into PC's more in high school and would always find old towers people would throw out on junk day, or at yard sales. I would take them home and play with them or take them apart to see what part did what. Over time I would learn what to do, and what not to do. Believe me, I fried quite a few towers. Now I am to the point where I can build one with my eyes closed and troubleshoot just about any problem that arises.

    So what else are you good at?

    Don't know about being real good at it but my other passion is shown below. Not licensed yet but this where my "non-gun" money goes. Oh my, did I say that!? I learned it in the Navy but had to put it on hold while raising kids.

    You might get a kick out of this;

    A few years ago I was building a few towers out of parts I had/found. There was an old pc I found on the side of the road that I picked up. Finally got everything hooked up started it up, and the motherboard started on fire lol! It must have gotten rained on many times, never going to make that mistake again haha. Never knew a computer could actually burst into flames lol.

    This is probably what I'm best at. Recently illustrated a friends book.







    I'm having fun making these lately.

    If you died today and stood in front of God and He asked you " Why should I let you into My Heaven?" what would you say?
