    Other hobbies besides guns?

    What other things besides firearms do you do for fun and/or collect as a hobby?

    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 have been collecting coins for the last forty years and just recently bought a classic car, a 1972 Datsun 240Z.

    I collect police related lapel pins, tie tacks etc. I have about 1500 in all between local, county, federal, military police and foreign police departments. Most are miniature badge or department patch pins. I also chase the golf ball as often as possible.

    When they come to take all our guns my collection of Edged Weapons will look even better. I also have been in to metal detecting since 1976.
    Its a shame that youth is wasted on the young.
