I always love to hear (and see) what other people like to do in their free time. It says alot about the person, and gives me new ideas of things I might want to try. Of course, homebrewing is one of my obsessions as I'm sure it's yours as well...

But what do you do with your free time when you aren't brewing?

I'll start it off...



I love to shoot guns, all shapes and sizes... been doing it since I was a kid. Here I'm shooting a Glock 32 - .357 Sig.

The way I love fiddling with and making brewing equipment, I like to do the same with my bicycles. Then my wife and I use them to tour different parts of the world.

Bunch more where that came from. Just got back in from a ride actually. 15 miles, from my front door and back. 2,500 feet of climbing bliss. And of course the same amount of downhill, rocky bliss. :D

I have that same Social D shirt, ABG.

I used to have a Mustang that I enjoyed driving.
Nowadays, I'm a new parent.

We had to coax him into the boat, it was hilarious. He hates water. To get to that lake, we literally hacked straight up the side of cliff because we couldn't find the trail that looped around. He loved it, running back and forth between me and one friend, and the third guy who kept falling behind cursing us!

When I saw this thread, I was like "I bet I'm the first to post with a gun" and the OP beat me to it!

First pic is with a .35 Remington Marlin and the second pic is a S&W M&P40.

There is more! I kayak, backpack, hunt, canoe, and spend time with my family. But that's most of it!

Like the OP I have been shooting since I was younger. This past summer I started shooting in USPSA competitions. I don't have any pics but here is a video I shot at a recent match.

My other hobby that I have been doing for years is flying RC helicopters and planes. I can't wait until spring to get back out there, winter blows!

I dunno man you look quite a bit different than I'd pictured you. More like a guy who would be riding in the BACK of a squad car. I mean jesus you don't even have a mustache. :D

I've done a bit of autocross racing, and dream of doing some proper road racing. I've even managed to go messing around Firebird in a Corvette, which was wicked fun.

Now I've got one little one at home, with another on the way, which means I barely have time for brewing, let alone other hobbies.

I guess 1 out of 2 ain't bad. Would you have to wear long sleeves if you were out on patrol?

It's the 9 full size, i've installed the Apex trigger job, and just recently Dawson Precision fiber optic sites. This is my favorite pistol i've owned.
Jealous. I have the MA compliant 10.5lb trigger. Hopefully the Apex trigger kit is under the tree this :mug:

Don't worry, I'm one of the good ones - I stop at stop lights, I stay in my lane and I respect drivers and others on the road.

Mine is getting free samples. I get all sorts of things in the mail - shampoos, boxes of cereal, candy bars, vitamins. Lame I know. The coolest will be that Stella Artois glass that I posted about in another thread.

Besides that exercise and occasionally some hiking, but those are more to support the effects of my homebrewing hobby. I would like to try cheesemaking sometime though.

Edit: I see that the thread says to show the hobbies. I'll dig up some hiking pictures when I get home

This is my sailplane. I got it in 2007 and changed the contest number and registration.

This was right after my first flight in her. The grin was stuck for a few days afterword.

This was from about 13000 feet just north of Canon City Colorado heading northeast. The mine at Cripple Creek is just to the left with Pikes Peak right off the nose and about 20 miles.

I cook for a living and as a hobby. My kids keep me busy, we LOVE comic books, Super Heroes, long boarding (they are usually on their bikes) camping, fishing and motorcycles (mostly road bikes mainly cruisers but my son is about ready for his first dirt bike) reading is always fun. My Wife crafts a LOT and sometimes I assist in a project ( like making labels for my Mead!) nothing too overly Awesome tho:)
