Do what you think you'll like better. I think the aerospace and mechanical engineering would be awesome. Not my cup of tea (I was a forestry major) but those fields are pretty damn interesting.

Yea, don't count on a job with NASA. Those cities like Huntsville Al are about to turn the lights out.

I was thinking more along the lines of Bell Helicopter, Boeing, Lockheed Martin, ect.

The reason I think I may want to do this is that I very rarely see jobs for civil engineers, but I have seen several jobs for aerospace engineers, and mechanical engineers (especially if you have both degrees). Another reason is that planes, helicopters,jets, ect interest me, so I think I'd enjoy a job working with/designing them.
Any suggestions?
I was studying mechanical engineering before I decided I'd rather turn wrenches.

That's what I'm having trouble deciding. I think it would be cool to design bridges, buildings, roads, ect, but then again, I'd be working with helicopters, jets, airliners, ect. if I went with the other degree. Plus, think the pay is a little better too. (either way, I wouldn't be complaining)

Hey, anybody know how to determine the age of a Stevens/savage 15A? It is my first rifle that i got back in 1977, a little .22 bolt-action single shot. From what i found on the interwebs, they stopped making them in either 1969 or 1971 but started way back when Cane was a youngster.
