Enjoying collecting the old things with my Grandkids.

They like the steel cars and A&W...I like the old oil cans.

I collect hats....lol. Oddly enough I rarely wear them, if ever. I shoot competitively and no matter where I go there is a hat for the occasion and they aren't too expensive.

Some I get as gifts. I went to San Antonio in 2007 for the SCTP Sporting Clays Nationals when I was 15 or 16. My dad got me this great Browning hat (I'm a big fan of ol' John's handy work).

I wore that hat every time I shot and in 2010 when I was shooting here at school during practice, I shot my first 50 straight in Skeet (I'm normally a clays guy and had never really shot much skeet)

Well, tradition following, the team was supposed to shoot my hat in celebration. They didn't know what the hat meant to me and I begged them to not shoot it...They had to chase me around but eventually they caught me and took my hat.

Coach put a clay in my hat, threw it in the air, and every student there (approx. 40) Blasted my cap...I was pretty pissed off and so was my dad. But, when I came home in the winter for Christmas 3 months later, there was the same style Browning cap sitting in the Christmas tree...my dad had found another one after months of searching (They were discontinued)

I love both those hats....The one in ribbons is hanging above my bed, and the other sits safely in my collection, never to be harmed.

Here's a video of the tragedy and a picture of the hat.

Oh yeah, I collect hats, as well.
I always wear a hat of some sort.

I'm a woodworker.

I sort of collect magazines. whenever I get one, I tend to hang on to it. Most of my magazines are either about woodworking, or guns, so I try to keep them around so I can go back through them later.

I also like gun ads. The old ones. If I see a reproduction, or the real thing, I try to get it.

I'm really into weird/odd/old gun designs (one of the reasons I love my Nagant revolver).

I like anything military. Old feild gear, guns, knives, ect.

I'm wanting to really get into reloading a lot of ammo.

I want to get into making stuff from paracord just so I can have something to do when I can't do woodworking or gun stuff.
