cavediverjc Among many other hobbies, I collect first edition books, many of them signed by their authors. My library is taking over my parent's house. As soon as I decide that I've had enough of the military, I'll have to build a house to fit the library!!

I agree. I was at Ft Sill Oklahoma when we started destroying our Pershing 2 missles. We locked the entire base down so the Russian military observers could watch the destruction take place. I knew guys who went as security to see them. They would have gone to war to take control of the oil and anything else they needed to build there war machine. Their economy would not have stopped them from attacking, I believe it would have spurred them on.

Well, my units mission was to move into blocking positions at the Fulda Gap and attemps to hold them back until we were reinforced. Even with our tactical nukes we wouldn't have lasted more than a few hours. I think they could have taken Germany before the allies could do anything about it. Of course, the cold war still rages on, just not in the public eye.

kg4kpg oh, and like I mentioned briefly in another thread, while I was in Germany I was on the nuke team for our unit. My job was to arm and fire a tactical nuclear artillery shell at the east german/russians when they attacked. We weren't PRP (for those of you who know) as we only were in the process at the end of the line. When the order came, our 6 man team would take over one of the unit howitzers, prep the round, and fire it. I believe all of the live rounds are now or have been destroyed. Fun job, I miss the big guns. This info is not classified, so I wont have to kill you.

tiny terror And his name is Christoph................. er. Bwahahahahaha.
06-16-2007 08:27 AM
kg4kpg Well lets see....from the last thread all I had was that I know Kevin Fowler (country singer from Texas). I reall y don't do much else. Geocache, ham radio, coin collecting. I am interested in long range shooting even thought I am without rifle right now. I can hit a softball sized target with an M-16 at 600 yards. Once I get the barrel I need, I'm going to built a 1000 yard .50 cal bench-rest rifle. I'll just have to get help machining the receiver and bolt.

Odhinn As I stated in the previous thread. I weave Chainmaille Armor on occasion, but to add I collect medieval weapons, build engines when inclined to, Build computers when needed, and recently I took up graphite and charcoal drawing (Still working on anything really legible except in my mind ). Not really stuck on one hobby just depends on my mood and need.
