It's something I was interested in at one time but life had other things in store for me. I have taken a torch to glass tubing. Made all kinds of interesting shapes, including blowing some "beads" (Skeeter said they looked like Leprechaun bongs). Made a cool wind chime with em.

Tiny, as much as I dont really like the company or their products, Microtech and Spyderco make knives very similar to that Kermabit in single edge, tactical folder fashion. I would go for a NON AUTOMATIC Microtech if you can, then spyderco. Too bad benchmade doesnt make claw knives

That M249 is sweeet. I love those things. I also have a soft spot for those mini guns. You know, the ones onto your trucks and helos... the one you need a KEY to turn on.... I want to play with one of them!! Any firearm that needs an ignition to start, I am all game! Your Barrett .50s are friggen sweet too. Those are lots of fun.

Ill take some pics tonite and try and host em at Photobucket. I Dont really have time since I gotta leave the house and do some work at BWI at 7:30 this morning

BigJeep: I was pretty deep into the racing scene when I was younger. Made some good money too. With respect to your racing Chick.. Most dont have time for guys, and get bothered by SO many, that they blow them all off. My advice is to strick up a small 2 minute conversation the next couple times your up there. Nothing serious, nothing smart assed, just a hello and maybe another small comment. After a few weekends she might warm up to ya. If she asks you to help work on the car, your in Whatever you do, do NOT come on strong, racing chicks get that far too much..

Excuse me what?
I know california has gone insane but I wasn't aware they had gone that far over the edge, are you seriously saying that double edged knives are illegal now?

Scuba diving. Here's a pic of my wife, son, and me on the Oriskany off Pensacola last year 3 months after they sank it!



We're taking our 3rd trip to Bonaire this October.

Sailing. We're both advanced coastal cruising certified through ASA. We like the bigger cruisers, like this one.



Apparantly I'm into guns now. I just picked up a 1971 Yugo SKS, numbers matching, non-issued, non-fired still in cosmoline yesterday (no pics yet). Just also purchased a Mossberg 44 .22 LR (US property trainer from prior to WW2) last night...



Also enjoy other cars as well.

Home renovation. We just finished our kitchen by completing the backsplash. My wife did all the cutting and fitting. I just helped with the grout.





Let's see. Rock wall climbing, hiking, photography (duh)... lotsa stuff.

Hey Griz, how about shooting? Have you ever tried shooting? You really should give it a try. It's a blast.
