You must be one hell of an organised person to be able to do all those activities. I also have too many interests but do not have the…… discipline? to convert them into hobbies.

    
That is my entire list. Usually only one to three are active at any one time (of course several are cross dicipline activities such as computers, RC Aircraft, Electronics, Ham Radio). I bounce around a bit to avoid burn out with any of them. I also don’t have a boss to answer to (wife yes, boss no). lol

    For me, airguns aren’t even a hobby. I have a couple I use for plinking and killing starlings, is all. My actual hobbies are off-roading, RC trucks, and air CANNONS. My big gun fires canned veggies at around [email protected] I’m buying sch80 pipe and fittings soon for one that maths out to [email protected], and I’m looking at a one of those cheapo Hong Feng pump so I can upgrade my blow-dart gun. Pops has an argon tank that is rated for 6000psi, and the valve I use should handle 800psi with a new piston. I figure on upgrading from wire blowgun darts to some mini-crossbow bolts I found, backed by 20ga shotgun wads.

    My two big RC trucks. The first is a Traxxas Slash 4×4 with a brushless motor out of my bigger truck. It’s clocked 95mph, but my GPS wouldn’t record anything higher, so I don’t know what it’s actually capable of. (Gearing calculation says 130mph+, but I doubt anything over 120mph.

    My big truck is an HPI Savage Flux, almost completely aftermarket or custom, mostly carbon fiber and 7075 T6 aluminum. Drivetrain is 100% high-grade hardened steel, but it still twists the 5mm halfshafts like licorice with the huge 1700kv motor that I run on 8 LiPO battery cells. It’ll do standing double backflips and I have no idea how fast it really is because it blows offroad tires into itty-bitty pieces at somewhere around 75mph. The cat weighed 18lbs when this was taken, if that gives a sense of scale…

    And of course, my Jeep.

    Golf and guns.  I am good at guns, not so good at golf.  I still haven't figured out which one costs more…

    Well I haven't seen this one posted yet.

    I'm a Sailplane Owner and Pilot.  My Sailplane is a Russian AC-4c.  About a 35 to 1 Glide ratio,  So far after being towed up to 2,500 feet above ground I released and during the 3 hour and 50 minute flight I climbed up to 10,700 feet.

    I'm a Marine Corps Veteran and had the Machine Guns and Bullet holes painted on, as will as putting the Marine Corps emblem on the Tail.  That's a Marine Corps Huey (4 Blade) helicopter to the left and a little further back is a Cobra (4 Blade) Attack Helicopter.

    Very fun to fly.

    Here's a picture of it outside of a Hanger on Camp Pendleton, Ca.  Possibly the first Russian Air Plane on a Marine Base.

    For now my other hobbies are shooting firearms, building computers, learning about new technology, and building the occasional model. Next I'm looking to take up reloading as a means to both save money and shoot more. Trying to make an already expensive hobby less expensive by pumping more money into it… Makes sense right?
