    I lie on the couch every day and see death come closer and closer as the days go by.

    My 2 kids - 1 toddler and one in college get much of my time. I'm also into Cuban cigars, my '66 Corvair, and to a lesser extent, shooting/guns.

    Collecting vinyl records has become a bit of a passion for me , especially 1st pressings . I have spent countless hours at car boot sales , charity , bric a brac , vintage , & second hand ( excuse the pun ) shops up & down the country looking for records . Some gems are still out there thankfully , and here’s one I picked up at the weekend . The Rolling Stones sticky fingers 1st uk pressing C93D4E64-431B-4F6C-90ED-01B063423BF4.jpeg B66E463C-8EF2-46A7-9B09-A12BCFD00CDB.jpeg

    I used to have a serious firearm collecting hobby, but in recent years I turned to airgun collecting. I've accumulated a number of classic 60's and 70's CO2 pistols.
    My favorites are a Smith & Wesson 78g .22 CO2 powered target pistol, a Crosman Mk1 .22 CO2 pistol, five models of the 38T and 38C Crosman CO2 revolvers in both .177 and .22, A Crosman SSP 250 .
    I also picked up a couple of modern Umarex Colt SAA Revolvers and an Umarex 1911 that is so realistic its hard to tell the difference even if holding it in your hand.
    A half dozen air rifles ranging from a Daisy Red Rider to a custom rifle built on a Crosman 13XX series pistol frame.

    90% of my free time is spent wrangling my toddler. What free time is left: powerlifting, olympic archery, photography, misc art projects, cooking and baking, playing guitar, thrifting for menswear. I used to do a bit of woodworking, and wish I had the time/tools to get back into that.

    Motorcycles (been riding since 1976), high end audio, travel, spinning (about 80 miles per week), and in the last few years, pinball machines. Going to the Texas Pinball Festival next month in Frisco, TX. Three days of non-stop pinball. Have a Spiderman Vault Edition in my spare bedroom, just spent a couple of hours today cleaning, adjusting and waxing the playfield.

    If you keep an eye on one of your watches it’ll come slower.
