    I do alot of fishing, ride my motorcycle, work 65 hour a week, watch football of all kinds, especially Alabama college and the Titans professional. I volunteer as a range officer at a local gun club where I shoot trap, rifle and pistol. I enjoy this forum emensely. My life is busy and full of energy. Yes, life is good.

    I play fiddle and mandolin. My fiddle is still in West Tennessee, so I bought my first mandolin and have been teaching myself guitar chords on it. Other than that, I spend a lot of time on the Internet.
    The preceding post may contain sarcasm; it's just better that way. However, it is still intended with construction and with the Love of my L-rd Y'shua.

    There is nothing wrong with airsoft competition when it is supervised and regulated by legitimate organizations. This sport/hobby is rapidly growing throughout the United States. It is fun and exciting. Where else can you practice tactics and strategy in real time environment?

    Let's see... I'm a computer nerd. (Just ask my wife!) I'm dabbling in Linux, but it's slow going.

    I keep and breed fish. So far it's been all freshwater, but I'm about to start my first saltwater tank.

    Like lots of us I do some home improvements now that I'm a home owner. And I've also been doing some carpentry. I've built some nice fish tank stands but my next project is a crib. (We just found out!)

    I play paintball, did a little rock climbing and scuba diving (and want to get back into both as soon as I'm better). I'm trying my hand at brewing my own beer.

    I read a lot. It kept me sane when I was deployed. I'm currently re-reading my collection of Heinlein. After that I think I might revisit my collection of W.E.B. Griffin.

    That, studying history, and drunken Halo parties keep me pretty busy.

    I'm guilty of collecting hobbies. I have had to thin down lately.

    Lets see:

    Hunting
    Wrenching on a 1966 Chevy pickup (Converted to 4wd and always needing another something done to it.)
    Wheeling the above Chevy
    Unicycle
    Juggling
    Bass Guitar
    Camping

    or any combination of the above.

    For me I am a huge computer nerd... I have countless computers (you should see my den), I take them apart and make new ones. I enjoy building new ones from scratch and taking them apart.

    In addition to that I collect license plates from across America... Yes, license plates

    How about you guys?
    I'm an avid shooter (MO CCW) and NRA Foundation supporter. My primary business is and always will be architecture.

    I design buildings and interiors as a licensed architect, mainly for several large corporations.

    I'm also a master pattern maker (Wood working ), a certified gun smith, and also a computer geek. I decided to turn the geek part into a second business. I now am one of the largest federally licensed fire arms dealers on the web. We are live but am still working on has-mat shipping for ammo and fire arms. In less than a month, I intend to list over 50,000 items at prices that can't be matched. This is my first venture into web design. I can't advertise here yet so to view my website you will need to send me a private message.

    Happy Trails,
    Sig
