Besides firearms, what other hobbies do you enjoy?

After pistol shooting (and building) comes Guitar playing (and building)







You may know a thing that is not true. But in understanding that thing, there can be ONLY truth. To reach that understanding and find the truth, you will need contrast, not adherence to a single idea. You'll find the truth in the contrast.

I enjoy outings with my pickup - like this one during a dust storm down in Tucson.....

Note:
I apologize for the huge size.
It doesn't come out this size on other forums.

Those are some awesome pictures.

If I got to go more I suppose kayak fishing would be a hobby.  Between the weather and lack of real enthusiasm in the family for getting out on the water with the kayaks and the fishing poles I've been out once so far this whole darn year.  I think it was three times last year.  I'm to the point where I should just go by myself but then it's a pond/lake outing as it's tough to float a river by yourself.



Better to have it and not need it, than to need it and not have it.  So, if you see me walking the dogs with my SIG 556R, its okay.

Agreed.  Those are Travel Brochure quality.  Well done.

Those are awesome photos indeed!

As for myself, I enjoy driving/travel, since I do lots of miles annually doing road trips when I’m not doing my job driving a semi, which has been my occupation for the last 18 years. The purpose for those road trips however (and why I like the routes I drive for work), is my other love besides firearms and shooting:

ROLLER COASTERS!

I guess you could say I’m a bit of a junkie, having a pass for all the parks in the respective Cedar Fair, Six Flags, and SeaWorld/Busch Gardens chains, along with Holiday World, and finally Dollywood (which also gets me a 50% admission discount to both Silver Dollar City and Wild Adventures).



My favorite one, though Steel Vengeance, Top Thrill Dragster, El Toro, and Intimidator 305 aren’t far behind!

Thanks for the kind words everyone. If anyone is interested, I share my travel photos on Instagram. Love if you'd follow me. You can find me at  www.instagram.com/alexsotelophotography
Are pictures 2, 3 and 4 from South America? maybe Patagonia? Thanks
I labeled the photos with locations.

I'm still working, but photography (anonymouscuban's are better!), videography now, plus shooting.  I built and raced drag race cars for 15 years...twice, but back and shoulder problems ended that one.

That's awesome. I used to love roller coasters. I can't handle them as well anymore. I can do one every few hours but back to back like before and I'm done for. LOL
Travel and photography.




Absolutely stunning pictures anonymouscuban.
Of course, as a French man, the pyramid of the Louvre got me more interested. But the others are equally mesmerizing.

For me, other hobbies are .... Youtube videos about guns ..... Raising rabbits (for meat) ..... fixing everything in my house that's falling apart, and others that are not  ::) ..... cooking a lot, maybe too much (I also make cooking videos) ...... running (when its not too hot) ...... and weekend parties with my life long friends.
I remodeled are last home and our current home pretty much all myself. Complete guts of bathrooms, kitchen, plumbing, electrical, flooring windows, doors. Very satisfying to do things yourself.

Oh... and thought I'd share a few more photos of Paris for you.
