Aside from airguns, what are your other hobbies?
« on: August 15, 2017, 01:43:55 AM »
Mine is taking care of my little Pomeranian, Kaleb. When I'm stressed from work, I come home to this cuddly tyke, licking my feet and urging for some dog food after. I raised him since he was a pup and both of us have been tight throughout the years. We usually play catch in our backyard during my days off (though we had to secure a dog fence, just so he wouldn’t stray far from our yard. Our neighbor had a weak wooden partition, and we once had a shouting match when poor Kaleb ended up on his lawn). Overall, he’s a very loving companion. How about yours? What are your other hobbies aside from Airsoft guns?

My wife Marilyn thinks all I am is a hobby! I've been a licensed amateur radio operator for nearly 50 years, and a metal detectorist for almost 60 years. The latter has taken a back seat in the last few years, as my knees don't like all they're out through when detecting. It isn't the walking, but all of the ups and downs!

My radio work is only mobile these days, but that is okay too, as it has always been my first love. My web site (http://www.k0bg.com) is dedicated to that facet of the hobby. Besides the web site, I'm a published author of several related articles and publications about operating from a moving vehicle.

I grew up in a sporting goods store, hence the love for the outdoors. My renewed interest in airguns has allowed me to shoot and hunt much closer to home, than any firearm could. My closest permission is a scant 2 miles away. The really good one (a feed lot) is 25 miles away. I must like to use airguns, because I've gone thought about 5,000 pellets so far this year. I did about 50 shots just yesterday!

I have an Omega compressor. If you're a fellow Guild member, and you pass through Roswell, NM, I'll fill your portable tank as a courtesy.

Besides airguns I love anything outdoors. Hunting and fishing and riding quads. In fact we're having our last hoorah so to speak before we get busy with harvesting and winter on the dairy. Riding on the sand dunes out on the Oregon coast.

My interests include, in no particular order; ATVing, Hunting, History, Astronomy, Gold-Panning, Model Boats and Airplanes (R/C and FF), Winemaking, Gardening, Photography, Cars, Motorcycles, and pretty much anything Mechanical.... Some elevate to the level of a Hobby at various times....

I used to be pretty hard core into aquariums, both fresh and salt water. I broke my tanks down about 10 years ago after a move and gave away my livestock and never got back into it. I still have my two largest tanks. I've been thinking about setting them up in my workshop 

Airgunning for me has always been a means to the end of quiet hunting. Although hunting for me is more of a lifestyle than a hobby.

One of my other hobbies is growing hot peppers and making fermented hot sauces, dried and smoked hot pepper Dust, and salsas.

I like to experiment.

Let's see, I have to think back to before kids. I was into speed shooting hand guns, Duck hunting, deer, turkey and dove hunting, shooting rifles and shotguns and fishing.  Remote control cars.  I am back to doing some of those things but now I have to include Disneyland, going to the park, we have a duck and a couple of chickens, taking care of my property,  I like a ton of stuff but I spend most of my free time with my kids and love every minute of it. My son is three 1/2 and my Daughter is 5 1/2 and they keep me busy.

Back when I was living in NY before my 30's, I was active in amateur radio, fishing, computers, and girls (although the last one was not very successful lol).  When I moved out on my own, I was still active in amateur radio, but since I moved to an apartment I couldn't have the elaborate setup that I had at my parents' house.  I still worked on computers as that was all I could do lol.  For the past 7 years after I got married I got into bird watching, which lead to photography, and also lead to airguns.  The amateur radio thing took a back seat since now I have a 15-month-old terrorizing me ;D

Fishing, fishing, and fishing. Steelhead is a passion and an obsession, salmon, halibut, sturgeon, lingcod/rockcod, sharks, trout, and stripers pretty much round out my calendar year. I've lost count of how many days I've had on the water this year...at least 30 so far and it's just getting started.

I make a lot of my own lures (flies, spoons, spinners)  This year I added 2.5 and 3 oz. flutter spoons and they have deadly on 'buts and lingcod.

Airgun shooting brings me back to when I was a kid growing up on a dairy farm. All I did growing up was fish, hunt, read, and work when I was home. No neighbors. Now I leave on 55 acres and I have a perfect air rifle range right out of my back door.
