    At my age, I have gone through so many 'hobbies'...

    I like working on old cars and old planes. Wife and I are avid birders, often spending lots of time photographing wildlife. We have both been wild animal trainers/handlers on the eco-education circuit. I've raced cars for trophies, not money. Never been a hunter, love to shoot.

    I used to fish until I got too feeble to handle my boat. I used to write novels until my muse picked the handcuff lock and escaped. I used to reload for a lot of calibers but not so much anymore. Come to think of it, I need to get a new hobby.

    I enjoy restoring old photos, to the point that I've turned it into a part-time business. Please don't tell my clients how much I enjoy it.

    I enjoy beer and scotch tastings, cigar smoking, off roading, fishing, hunting, and general shenanigans.

    I also enjoy mounting light bars and vehicle lighting systems. Its fun to me to get all the flashy lights working, I've even managed to make a bit of money off of it.

    1) Restoring or repairing anything mechanical (cars, motorcycles, washing machines, etc.), driving high-performance or "interesting" cars (sports, muscle, 4x4, etc.).
    2) Fitness/health - weight training, cardio conditioning, eating healthy.
    3) Self-defense: Trained in Taekwondo for the past year, recently switched to Krav Maga, self-study on Combatives, etc.

    My main hobby is working with Liberals in achieving the total destruction of the Second Amendment and going around with the Special Gun Confiscation Squad and "collecting" guns.

    No, really, that isn't what I do.

    I play drums and sometimes bass guitar, sing and write some songs. I'm in a group of other musicians getting together on a weekly basis to jam. We lock the door, make people pay to get out and I earn some extra cash for that.

    I like to golf. I like to collect coins and Native American stone tools. I'm kind of a rock hound along with my wife who likes gemstones, namely diamonds. J/K she wants to learn to make jewlery and I do flintknapping a bit making reproduction stone tools.

    I did have a decent "collection" of guns but that was reduced by some thieving thug in a burglary. Now my "hobby" will be to acquire replacements. Unless of course my collection of paychecks won't be enough to cover it
