  • Away from work activites, fun?

    I thought I would brake the ice and try to send this section more towards none security or none work related issues. Anyone have a hobby or interest? I go to the range sometimes but its to far away (it's owned buy the boss so it's free) so mostly I go to qualify, take the edge off my last requal and blow off a little work stress. Sometimes talking guns gets to close to the job thing so I do other things. Like I shoot my compound bow more than anything. I am a long term archery and bowfisherman. During the winter I shoot my bow in the back yard or private ranges. During the summer a few friends and myself head out to the various parks and lakes to shoot nile perch and catfish. It's both fun and sporting plus it adds to the dinner table.

    -Being bagger at Publix has more respect these days

    -It's just a job kid deal with it

    -The industry needs to do one of two things; stop fiddling with the thin line and go forward or go back to that way it was. A flashlight in one hand and your set of keys in the other

          Compensating the refraction by shooting below the target. Track ahead of a moving target to accommodate distance, movement and range. When I first started it was hard, frustrating and I came home empty handed a lot. It was very different to shoot into water at something only 25 to 50 feet away to that of a target 100 yards away standing still. Today and for the last ten years those little suckers come home in my Coleman coolers.

            Well, there was a guy using an old WWII field phone generator. Needless to say it not only generated results. It generated a few months in jail and the loss of his boat. And fishing license for five years.

              I also really enjoy travelling, my ideal vacations are around 3 weeks on the road. I've been all over every western state except Texas. I refuse to head back east, as there are just too many people! I did a short stint as an event coordinator/personal security specialist a few years ago and got to spend half a year on the road, broken up into 4 week periods. Good times...

              Joe, if you think Bozeman, MT is a small town, you've never spent 2 weeks in Broadus, MT!

              Let's see...I also do radio stuff (not ham), woodworking, read voraciously (mostly historical non-fiction, I average 2-3 books a week), and spend time with the family. We're looking into raising some animals, Nubian Dwarf goats as pets and Alpaca llamas as pets and for the wool as well.

                  I wouldn't mind trying that sport. I enjoyed archery when I was a kid. I like to fish and this combines the two activities.

                          I did paintball when it first started. All they had then were hand models that were powered by a cO2 cartridge or springs. The range was limited to. And the Balls were the size of golf balls. And they hurt! I did it for a few months but honestly got board with it because back then you had very little paintball friendly places and not very many people were doing it. Now they have centers, land and facilities for not only the public but law enforcement too. Some of these guns are as expensive as real guns. But it looks like fun, but kind of out of my range of sporting fun and budget.

                            They still have the ones that are powered by CO2 and pump, I actually enjoy a game of just pump guns. Depending on the type of paintball you play you can get a fairly decent marker for pretty cheap, heck wallie world and kmart got some

                              City parks already have, and some county parks are considering it. It's all politics favoring the tree huggers, bunni lovers and trail bike college wanna-bes. Lines have broke, and the arrow just goes right into the water. Your out of about 12 to 15 bucks an arrow but no one gets hurt.
