    Hey guys,

    I'm new to the forum and wanted to get to know some of the other users :D What are your hobbies, aside from glocking that is? :p

    I'm a massive fan of watching Star Trek online and Family Guy online, and I love my playstation browser games! Brilliant! How about you guys? :)

    With young kids it's hard to find time but when I do it's either working on my CJ7, riding one of my bikes, road/mountain/trial or fishing. Also like to mess around in the shop, building a work bench right now.

    I love to Golf. I never missed golf course in the evening.
     
  5. Well when I am not on the road selling heavy duty truck parts, I drive race cars.

    Here is the truck, trailer, and cars

    I read and collect books like a fiend.

    I'm also a jack of all trades, master of absolutely none so I find myself in projects often.

    I'm also an avid prepper, DIYer (Part of my need to self reliant), and I do a lot of cooking.

    Recently I've been getting into breads and have started looking for ancient recipes to try in different ways.

    I'm also wanting to start a teardop trailer build in the near future for camping with my family.

    I'm also a family man and as TxShooter said, that takes up most of my time.

    1. My wife...she's a good hobby to have!
    2. Wrenching on old cars, old trucks, or jeeps! (which I have none at the moment.) I moved from TN and stuck my 5 ac mini-farm into a .33 ac lot in a neighborhood. My tractor takes up my car space at the moment.
    3. Shooting USPSA and steel matches.
    4. Shooting Wild Turkeys. Even when I come up empty handed, I had a good time!
    5. I am a DIYer as well: home improvement, car maintenance, and 'prepping' on occasion.
    Edit: Drinking Beer as well. Duh, how could I forget that???!!

    I participate in "adventure running" also called "Mud Running"

    Last year I did 4 races three 5ks and one 15k (Tough Mudder) these races are typically run at ski resorts where we run up the mountain, tackling obstacles as we go. Here are a few pics from last years events.

    Tough Mudder 2011 (15k) The wires i am running through here are electrified.

    Warrior Dash 2011 (5k) running through the fire corridor

    Rugged Maniac 2011 (5k) crawl in a muddy pond...

    I have 2 Tough Mudders (15k each), a GORUCK Challenge (10 hrs 18-20miles +obstacles and crossfit), and Warrior Dash (5k) on the agenda for 2012, and probably more that I haven't signed up for yet. I fly to TX next Month for Tough Mudder TX Coast.

    I am also a blue belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. This was my first competition win by submission. (I was a white belt here, and have since learned to grab my shin instead of my foot when adjusting the triangle for those who know what they are looking at lol)

    I am also a dedicated father, and husband.

    Mmmmm.....shooting of course. Learning how to do things "the old" way. Gardening, preserving food and herbal medicine. Afraid I have a bit of a survivalist heart. ;-)

    A thread on herbal medicine would be great :)
     
  19. Other than shooting, I co-own a firearms training business called (of all things) Armed Missouri, Inc. I spend the majority of my time away from my full time (translated boring) job either teaching firearms courses or spending time with my wife of 12 years and our 6 year old son. I also enjoy riding my Kawasaki, and sometimes I pick on the guitar.

  20. Well besides my new hobby of shooting firearms I occasionally play airsoft, play the tenor saxophone, big ps3 gamer, and I collect knifes.
