Taking a guess everyone here has an interest in Rugers and/or firearm sin general but what about other interests outside the shooting sports?
For me...I enjoy Nascar although I've let my annual tix go. Had them for NH, Dover and Pocono. I also enjoy two-wheels, both motorcycling on the Bonneville and bicycling with my son. Especially enjoy mt biking. This time of yr though, the bikes are away and the snowmobile comes out. :) As a more family themed interest, we're a BIG Disney family. Visit the FL park at least once annually and are members of the DVC. Looking like a CA trip and perhaps Disney paris trip in the coming couple years. :) lasty I guess, I'm a HUGE fan of Kiss - have been for decades. If there's a show in the New England or NYC area, chances are we'll hit one or two of them. Went of the Kiss Kruise last yr and will again this yr. All this doesn't leave much time for much else.

How 'bout the rest of ya?

Anything outdoors in the spring, summer and fall.

We have a permenant camp site with 26' Jayco trailer near lake Shelbyville in Illinois. Camping nearly every weekend with boating, swimming, hiking, and golf cart rides through the trailers. The whole family loves to be out in nature.

Ah, KISS -- a band I have a bit of history with. If you are a true blue KISS fan, then you know about the Cadillac High School homecoming gig. I was a brand new reporter, just out of college the previous spring, for the Cadillac Evening News and covered the whole shebang (freelanced for the Detroit News, too).

Still a writer, and just a while ago got back from cross-country skiing in the beautiful northern Wisconsin forest. The last six summers have been set aside for sailing on Lake Michigan, but we're probably taking a break this summer for some landlubber activities we've been putting off. Other interests are gardening and guitar.

I've been shooting and hunting with stickbows for almost 50 years, so I guess that hobby is going to last...:) I try to get to a few trad bow shoots through the summer, where I can camp and hang out with old friends with similar interests. Shooting during the day and telling lies over some cold ones around a campfire at night. It don't get much better.
I also have travel trailer parked near the woods where I hunt and my wife and I go up there whenever we can to get away.

Musician here ... lead worship at church and anywhere else I can. Keys, guitar, winds ... was a sax major in college. Now there's a useful degree ... although, it is paying some dividends these days.

At age 65, the only hobby that has stood the test of time is firearms and related activities. Hunting, shooting, reloading, buying, selling, trading, Trap, Sporting Clays, Skeet.

Starting at an earlier age, I've wanted to sample as much of life as possible. Hobbies (to one degree or another) that have come and gone include drag racing, motorcycles, flying, martial arts, home remodeling, Bass Fishing, Archery.

Before I retired, I was a workaholic and traveled mostly just to visit family. Since I've retired, my interest has drifted towards traveling and seeing the great nation that I live in (as the budget allows). We have a 21' TT that fits our needs nicely. Thus far, we have taken trips to the Smokey Mountains and back. Went to Idaho and back stopping at the major sights and the last one was to Arizona, the Grand Canyon and back thru Southern Utah and Colorado.

I like to fish and hunt, and spend time on the Harley when I'm not doing fishing or hunting.
