    for me, it's digital photography with Nikon DSLR equipment and lenses and buying and collecting premium Swiss watches. Although, shotguns and clay shooting occupy most of my leisure time!! How about the rest of you!?!

    my Rolex 14060M COSC certified Submariner...

    another famous Rolex. The last of the 24 hour GMT-Master's. This one was General Scott Yeager's favorite timepieces. It started its history back in the fifties when they were issued to Pan-Am pilots for testing by Rolex. Also worn by the first moon landing astronauts, contrary to popular belief...

    I have been a "watch nut" all my life. Other than watches and shooting, I enjoy collecting American Silver Eagles and Morgan Silver Dollars. I also love good shooting rimfire rifles.

    Pistols, rifles, motorcycles, guitars. The problem is that making a living uses up the time I would like to spend on my hobbies.

    I just found out that my answer should have been my wife, grandchildren and her kids.

    Cockoo Clocks. I love buying the old cockoo clocks and getting them to run again. They are all mechanical and actually quite simple but very delicate.

    I also hunt and fish but not as much as i use to.

    Here are some of my nine clocks. It can get quite noisy when they are all running. :)

    It's interesting- there's a sort of pattern developing so far. Besides outdoors things- shooting, hunting and fishing- it's guitars and music for me, as well.

    3. Autographs of baseball players,actors, politicians.
    4. Morgan coins
    5. Disabled Nephew and I collect recoil pads together, that he keeps at his house.
    6. Cameras

    My two granddaughters,(just got a new one on July 14), Woodworking for wildlife (Seed feeders, suet feeders, bird houses, nesting boxes etc.) and pan fishing with super-light tackle. Rifle shooting, mostly a .22 as my other rifles cost about $1.00-$1.25 a bullet so that can get a little spendy. I also have a small shooting range setup in my basement for shooting my pellet pistol.

    Besides the obvious, family and trap shooting, I enjoy astronomy, collecting/investing in rare US coins, hunting, and US History, especially the two great wars fought on our own soil (visiting sites related to the wars is just a part of it)....

    There are a few more, like collecting semi-automatic firearms from WWII and scuba diving whenever I get a good opportunity, but the above list takes up my time quite well....Cya
