    Besides firearms, what other hobbies do you all enjoy in your spare time?

    Personally I love sportbikes (last was an 04' Yamaha R6), freshwater aquariums, and I am an occasional white water kayaker.

    Reading, music, hunting, collecting (as in the other thread currently running here What do you collect, other than guns?). Oh and forum-ing.

    Nice, a good friend of mine from high school is also really into drifting and is a photographer as well. He runs a 240SX and is at most every drift event up here.

    Cross stitch, other creative arts, mechanical doll making and sewing. I did make porcelain dolls, but have gotten away from it because I don't have a kiln. I enjoy raising plants and have a nice collection of African violets as well as some plants that I have had for over 20 years. I want to do some long term landscaping and would love to start a food garden this spring. I have all kinds of plans, but it depends on what I can physically do. I know...girly stuff, but I am a girl.

    I like reading and working with stained glass. A few years ago we fixed up an old Victorian house (1870). I spent a lot of time scraping wallpaper, hanging paper, repairing plaster, painting miles of trim etc. I guess that was a hobby for about 5 years.
    I do a lot of volunteer work, not exactly a hobby but it takes up a lot of my time.
    Oh, I almost forgot...I love to garden, especially flower garden.

    I enjoy fishing, hunting, golfing, and my freshwater aquariums, to name just a few. Above all though, including firearms and shooting, my favorite hobby would have to be backyard astronomy. I'm hoping to start a new telescope build before too long that will involve everything from grinding the mirror myself to constructing the base. Basically the only pre-manufactured portions will be the focuser and eyepieces.

    I brew beer, make wine, make beef jerky and grow herbs.
    I also dehydrate the herbs for my prep supplies.
