What other hobbies do people have on here?

I like motorcycles and airplanes but I'm currently a student and living on a tight budget so I can't indulge in all the guns and motorcycles I want to buy.

Besides all aspects of collecting Military type firearms I collect Native American artifacts (arrowheads). I have surface hunted for most of my collection here in central Ohio.

Here is an example of a nice Adena pendant still laying in the dirt just before I picked it up.

Currency - Started collection of old paper money.

Cooking - I like to eat, which causes me to cook. I am proficient both indoors and out.

Beer - I enjoy micro brews and have brewed my own, cut my beer tooth in Germany.

Socializing with friends and family - Of course that often goes with the other hobbies.

Collecting and shooting firearms - Imagine that?

Photography - Started long ago, processed and printed my own film and slides, now into the digital age.

Cars and motorcycles - Have built many cars, motorcycles and engines, I'm not as active in this as I was years ago.

Home tinkerer - Have done many home remodeling jobs.

Chasing women - Been there, done that.

Outdoors - Hunting, fishing, camping and just enjoying nature.

Modeling - No, not that kind! Building, painting and improving on model cars, rockets, airplanes etc. Even those that fly. I have created many from scratch.

Others that don't come to mind right now.

Fishing

Hunting

Building guitar amps (kind of on hiatus for the last 2 years)

Play with the grandkids. yes, I have grandkids at 41. I married into 2 instant kids when I was 20.

Handloading.

Baseball and Hockey. Except no NHL this year. :(

Working on cars. I worked as a mechanic to put myself through school.

To go along with Gunbuff58, I collect random pieces of pottery and arrowheads when I find them while hunting/fishing or helping my brother or uncle on their farms.

And, unfortunately, work as a software engineer.

Besides working on old and new rifles I enjoy furnature design and designing kitchens. I built this kitchen for my Inga who is the Chef at a local Bestro & Brewery. Inga purchased this "MONSTER" Garland resturant stove with griddle,6 burners,double ovens and broiler and I designed the kitchen around her baby :thumb: I also am a Chef, a painter, furnature designer and builder. Some of this for $$$$ and some for fun.

And archery, though that's a new one.
