  1. Other than the Hot Rods,......almost anything firearm related including building rifles. Here are some pics of an M2 Springfield I built for my business partner as a wedding present. And love to shoot Snooker, we have a weekly Snooker night at my house.

    nice Johnnie!
     
  3. Thanks Louie ! Yeah, try to stay tuned up on gun work and build One or Two a year. Building one right now for a little girl, I gave her a Chipmunk 22 for her first birthday, will have it looking like a real safari express rifle before she turns Two.

    Very good thread, we find that our two interests sometimes interfere with each other with both being better weather types. We shoot long range matches on steel plates out to 1000 yards (I know that isn't far to some) but we do it with a twist.

    This is what we started with, mid grip XP-100 in 260 rem with a pistol scope and the other in 7-08.

    Short video of the 260 shooting at a few targets.

    We've tried various scopes and made custom stocks and this is now what we're using. The latest is a custom aluminum stocked Savage Target Action BATF legal pistol configuration in 6XC. The other is my old XP-100 with a Rem-Age barrel conversion converted to rear grip in a custom aluminum stock in 260rem.

    Short video of the newer pistol being shot.

    On a nice weekend what do I do, shoot a match or take a ride in the Hotrod?

  19. I like to spend some time on my model railway layout . Still a work in progress after some 7 years. Captures '20's-60's "Petroliana" as I call it . Still has some way to go before its finished. Here are some pics. I hope you get the idea.

    I think that person would be called a savant or worse. 8^)

    WW1 German weapons were/kinda are a passion of mine. I kinda abandoned the car hobby for them for about ten years. I still like my bang bangs but ammo is high and I got no place to shoot so they just mostly sit in the gun safe now.

  23. Trains are my second hobby. I built this railroad in my backyard 27 years ago. When the world craps on me, I can go out in the yard and enjoy my own carefree world. Very relaxing. In case you couldn't tell, my wife is a serious gardener.

    Very cool backyard! :D
     
  26. What a asinine statement Jack,,I'm not a savant ..or worse yet,whatever that's suppose to mean.

    I love cars,,it's not a lifestyle it just part of who I am.

    Your preconceived notion of my psyche must elevate your status in your mind as some sort of arm chair physiologist.

    Personally,I think something is amiss with anyone that jumps of the side of a mountain trying to simulate flight,,but then again,I must have a problem. :mad: HRP

    Since it's Christmas time, I thought it might be a good idea to post a photo of my Daisy BB gun collection. This is the 30th anniversary of the CHRISTMAS STORY movie.

    Trivia time: When Jean Shepard wrote "In God We Trust, All Others Pay Cash", he confused the Daisy Model 25 Pump gun with the compass in the stock with the Red Ryder carbine. Daisy actually made some special editions of the RR with the compass in the stock and a sun dial. For whatever reason, Daisy never got the rights to the CHRISTMAS STORY logo or the movie. However, Daisy has produced CHRISTMAS EDITION carbines for the 20th, 25th and 30th anniversary of the movie

    I have over 100 BB guns going back to 1913.
