Default Besides cars, what is your favorite hobby?

Well, I like guns. Especially tactical handguns, rifles, and semiautomatics. Automatics are cool but not practical unless you are in a war like our American brethren (Stay safe guys). I also like high performance/quality air rifles.

Check out my toy. Can anybody figure out what it is?

Nice gun. I can't tell what it is though. Speaking of guns, besides cars, in my spare time I lift weights. I also enjoy drawing and writing, and some guitar every once in a while.

Drawing, cooking, and anything having to do with movies, be that watching them, writing them, editing them or anything else.

That appears to be the sniper rifle of choice for the elite squads in the US military.
Not sure of the make, but it sure looks like a .50 cal. Maybe an Armalite AR-50 or an LAR Grizzly?

I'm a bit of a "gun buff" myself. I have a Ruger Redhawk 7 1/2" blued .44 mag pistol, A Remington 700 ADL in .270 Rem, and a Mossberg Crown Grade 12 ga combo shotgun (vented rib 28" bird barrel w/chokes, and a 24" rifled slug barrel). Sold my muzzle loader and TC Encore pistol (in .308 Rem) last year.
I like to "sim race" in a league on the computer - when I have time, and I enjoy listening to music and writing/performing/recording it.

You said "besides cars", right?

HeyItsWes, good for you. It will keep you bones/muscles and tendons strong. I have been lifting weights in some fashion or another 3 times a weeks for several decades now.

Don't forget the cardiovascular/flexibility side of staying in good physical shape.

So besides physical, also include mental and spiritual as well and you will be well rounded.

Justinec101, I watch movies all of the time and love to keep up with gadget and especially if it pertains to audio/video stuff of any kind.

I have over 100 movies on laserdisc since 1990 and more than that on on DVD. Since it appears that Blu Ray has one the format battle and I may get myself an HD player now.

BootCamp, I am going to let a few other people try to guess the gun if they can before I tell what it is.

I was a trained (that means I took sounds classes by sound professionals) sound guy for contemporary christian bands for 3 different churches. Allen Heath is my favorite board. I use Sound Forge 8.0 for editing and mixing sound but only for my listening pleasure.

As much as I like music and I played Saxophone for 5 years and organ for 4.....I am not a musician nor can I sing (I just make noise).

I am better at doing the technical stuff.

This may seem strange but I like to use my analytical skills when I buy technical stuff.....like to camera and voice recorder that I bought recently.

I am currently looking at what calibers and rifle I would like get next but it is difficult because we are kind of in a lull in caliber develpment and what is taking of in the market place.

When I retire, I would like to also build a few cars.....like a kit car GT40, which is my dream car.

Well I've always been a huge music buff, being a former DJ, so I guess music has always been my second passion. I've also been spending alot of time writing articles for the wikicars website - if anyone hasn't seen it or ever heard about it, here's the link

http://wikicars.org/en/Main_Page

I've probably done or at least contributed to about 100 articles so far (the Dodge Challenger page being one of them - that was all me). Ironically though, as much as I enjoy writing, the writing and my passion for music have never coincided - I've never had the talent for being any sort of songwriter... unless you include some bar sing-alongs with lyrics that shouldn't be mentioned here.

Yankee, which Dodge Challenger page are you referring to that you wrote.

I know what you mean about the song writing.

I guess I use the side of my brain that is better for technical/analytical stuff, and the other side of my brain for creativity....I guess I was born without.

I have to work real hard to write a poem for example, but when I am finished, it is usually not bad. It just does not come natural for me.

Give me a technical magazine and I will enjoy that alot.
