I collect and trade fire department patches. Play the six string...
and my son and I are into airsoft guns, where you can take realistic assault rifles and machine guns and lite up other people......how great is that!
Seriously it is alot of fun....the guns are fun to customize...and it lets me get out in the woods for some exercise. Most importantly it lets me spend quality time with my son.

i collect civil liberties.
sadly, my collection is dwindling
I'm for the tame hobbies - reading, sewing, cross stitch, etc. Spending time with my son when I can. Volunteering at his school when I can. I'm a member of my local Daughters of the American Revolution chapter - a direct off-shoot of my genealogical work. I tell people I collect dead relatives.
I expect to have a loss of free time soon, as I'm contemplating going back to school myself to achieve another life-long dream - teaching.
Science Fiction, fast cars, golf, and movies.
I like to go fishing or sometimes when time permits, I go on paranormal research investigations.
I aside from guns like to...
collect funeral cars.
collect funerary antiques.
Run my haunted houses.
Visit haunted houses in the rest of the country.
Stay involved in Boy Scouts.
Playing mediocre guitar in a surf band.
Thats about it!
My hobbies tend to switch from time to time. I like all kinds of things but two that i always enjoy are deer hunting and my jeep.

Reading- I read all Heinlein's books back about 25 years ago, it's time to revisit some old friends.
Messing around on Forums, helps fill those hours when the rest of the world sleeps!
Riding my Motor Scooter
My latest obsession is learning Spanish.
