    So besides guns and shooting what else do you guys and gals do for fun? My other loves are playing guitar, listening to a lot of music, sports and Jeeping. All of my hobbies keep my wallet nice and empty :D

    I collect pocketknives (mostly Case), do a little cartooning, and build ships in bottles. At one time I was pretty good at tooling leather--mostly picture carving. I hope to take that up again one day.

    No, geocaching is using a GPS to find a container (like an ammo can) others have left for you to find. The normal protocol (around here, anyway) is to leave a message on a pad of paper, take one thing out of the container and put one thing into the container. They're usually little things like army guys or other small items. It's great for kids and gets them on the right road for orienteering. You can read about it more here http://www.geocaching.com/.

    I'm into geocaching somewhat. Meteorite collecting is something I've been into since I was a kid. I also collect coins (mostly U.S. but also a lot of ancients -- Greek, Roman, Celtic). Reading about history has become a recent pass-time.

    Besides guns?

    Well, I try to find Police Interceptors to play with. The rarer, the better. I own a 1995 Camaro Z28 "B" series Police interceptor and a 1996 Ford Crown Victoria Police Interceptor. Fun to drive, but so easy to get one into trouble!

    Love music, books and movies. And some of them aren't about guns OR cars!

    ;)

    +1!! :(

    I used to hunt and collect guns. I used to own/ride motorcycles. I used to collect coins. I used to work out at the gym. I used to own sports/muscle cars. I used to travel. I used to have hair, weekends to myself and a savings account!

    I still collect guns, but now I'm married with children... :rolleyes:

    Other hobbies? Are there other hobbies? :eek:

    Shooting and swimming. Two skills that can save your life.

    I don't know if it can be called a hobby, but we have discovered crusing, and I don't mean Low-Riders. :rolleyes: I mean on big ships. We leave on our 6th this weekend, and might just circumnavigate the globe, one cruise at a time. So far, we've been to the entire west coast of N. America, the British Isles, Norway and Amsterdam.

    Bon voyage.​
