What does everyone do besides shooting?


#297

Riding my RoadKing of course.

When my sons visit then it’s hiking time.

Fishing when possible, this was down in Florida.

Working on the basement finish, especially the future bar.

My little helper.

Teaching the niece some basic woodworking and framing.

Of course that also means spending time teaching her how to hunt.

Raising chickens.

Of course that means chickens everywhere.

Brewing some beer.

Finished product bottled and ready for aging.

If you’re ever in West by God Virginia PM me. Happy to have you over.

I lived in Berkley county for 8 months while I was in high school
Wild and wonderful

It’s a lifetime away from me, but I like the idea of that. Even now I don’t have much of a life, but I prefer that to being obligated to doing something I don’t want to do.


#304

Lately, when I am not shooting I am either sleeping or working. :wink:


#305

Is she using a PS90 in that hunting pic?


#306

That’s my Faxon ARAK with the 300BO barrel on it. She was using my 125 grain hand loads that weekend.


#307

@RetPara I’ve been looking at the Faxon ARAK, did you select a second upper with your ARAK.


#308

Retired, but I stay busy. Drive my Vette, chase fish on the Great Lakes and elsewhere. I sit on a bunch of Advisory committees about the Great Lakes on both the State and Federal level. Have done some lobbying at both the State and Federal level about issues related to the Great Lakes fishery, including Asian Carp and Sea Lamprey and other invasive species. Was an elected official in local government for a number of years.


#309

I thought those Lakes were emptied of fish by gill nets?


#310

With the ARAK I went with a single upper and multiple barrels.


#311

That is one very complex issue. I have been studying it for over 20 years and just now am getting an understanding of it. Short answer is no they are not, but…yes they could be if we are not damn careful. And that “we” is complicated by treaties made over 150 years ago. Fishing is still damn good, but it takes a lot of work by a lot of people to keep it that way.

Rechargeable pooch?:rofl:

Very nice! I restored an old Honda CX-500. I mostly hop on the Harley, but the Honda is still fun to ride.


#315

Very nice!
