Home brewing man. Not a lot of effort, plenty of latitude to experiment. There is some time to be invested, and the level of money that you want to spend is completely up to you. You can good results cheaply. Or great results for not that cheap.

Not true... at least in my area. I'm working on my home based FFL right now .. I like C3's idea.. Already started collecting rounds when I got into C&R collecting 11 years ago. But researching the history of them is something I'd not touched on ... yet.

Another "gun" related hobby: Restorations. I've been doing this for several years now and will actually be supplimenting my retirement income by doing it. I've done over a dozen restorations for folks in my area and as long as I can regulate how much I bring in, it will remain a "hobby" and not become a job...

Try building balsa RC sailplanes. No fuel needed. You can fly with as little as 2 channels. Build in the winter, fly in the summer. Simple tools and some skill are all that's needed. When you are done you can say with confidence "I can make a box of wood fly" .

I set hidden cameras in rest stop bathrooms and edit them together for sale on the internet. Make money doing a hobby.

I would think so.

I would also think it impressed more than a couple of fathers.

I bet it impressed them even more if he didn't show up in a van with purple deep pile shag carpeting on all interior surfaces, that and the big peace sign painted on the sides.

Kind of difficult for the pilot to screw in a Cessna 110.

Really, flying is not that difficult. By far the hardest part of pilot training is understanding communication protocols.

I always said there were two difficult aspects of learning to fly: learning the language; and learning how to drive the freaking thing on the ground. Once you get it in the air, it's a piece of cake. But airplanes are not meant to be on the ground and become obstinate if kept there too long.
