yeah nice wheeler man, I like the full diamond plate underneath and definitely nice choice on the vampires. 8) Best bang for the buck out there.

I've had my eyes on the rincons for awhile, just ever had the balls to go buy one. After next hunting season though... i just may have one! You've probably seen www.gorilla-axle.com? I plan on atleast a 6" lift with either some outlaws or some silverbacks. Its about time to go all out. Also some similar things like snorkels and relocated readiator, clutch kit, jetting, etc.

Although I'm a huge fan of honda atv's, the big bear hasn't let me down. My dad has 1988 Yamaha Terrapro 350 since 88 when he bought it and ih has only needed a new clutch cable and fuelshut off valve. With a pto and bushhog, this thing is a blast to mow the lawn with.

I love the Big Red the most though. You just dont see them anymore, and I cant get enough of 'em! Its a hog in the mud, and a wheelie king. And you'e right: haha a toaster kall kill you too! I can still be safe and have all the fun I want! And I just love the looks on people faces when I float it past their swamped 4 wheeler!

Once again nice bike

Well I got rid of my daisy co2 pistol. I put about 600 shots through it and took it back. Has anybody ever shot one of those crossbow pistols? Now that I got rid of my co2 pistol I want to try something else.

It was a cool thing to hand up in my room but accuracy was crap beyond point blank and power was disappointing, I'd rather have a good single shot air pistol.

I had an old Daisy air rifle when I was living back home with my parents -- they lived near a forest preserve so we'd get a lot of animals in our backyard. I had to use it to deter racoons and skunks from invading us and hurting our dogs (My parents had a shih-tzu and a miniature schnauzer/terrier mix).. A raccoon could easily kill the shih-tzu, and probably severely injure the schnauzer, they're mean critters! And well skunks stink to high heaven.

It was a break-barrel design, got rusted because I kept in the shed, but it got quite a bit of use. We had a telephone pole in our backyard bordering our fence that the animals would use to climb over the fence -- one time my schnauzer chased a big fat raccoon up the pole to the very top (about 30 feet I'd imagine) after clawing at the shih-tzu. I popped that thing right in the ass and it fell, made a huge thump. Then it crawled away and learned its lesson. I forgot what model it was, it's very common and could be bought almost anywhere. But it worked well, although I was't thrilled about having to pump it so many times.

Toys?
Hmm, I have a number, although none of the fancy stuff some people are parading - Ignoring my launchers, of course.

While lots of people seem to have the latest games machines, I'm perfectly happy with an old X-Box. It may not come with mega-fractal graphics, but it still does it's job just fine. Cost £160 in what can only have been 2002 - for six years old, it holds it's own.

I've never felt any real press to upgrade what with the exorbitant prices of the modern consoles.
That, and there are very few recent games I want to play that aren't also released on PC, which my gaming laptop can handle just fine - it's nothing too special (2x 2Ghz dual core, 2Gb RAM, 100 GB HDD, 512 MB graphics card, and a modern-ish motherboard with flash memory on it to cut time talking to the HDD), but again, it does the job.

There's not really much more really worth talking about, I don't spend too much on "toys", I tend to pass my time with different engineering/DIY projects.

For example, today I was working on a 30 year old diesel engine that hadn't been started in years, with just my multi-tool to hand. When it came to start it (on what I should mention was a battery that hadn't been charged since the engine was last run, and was thus practically dead), I was assured that "there's no way it will ever work"... but it just chugged into life with no complaint whatsoever.
Of course, the next thing was: "If that's stopped, it won't start again."
The engine was stopped... and well, of course, wouldn't you know it, what then happened was that... it started again.
Don't ya just love it when things work? :D

Other than professional level bodgeing and just plain fluky engineering, I spend my time with various forms of art - in addition to my drawing, I also do miniature sculpting and painting.

A bit odd, but don't knock it, it takes quite a lot of patience, a good eye and a steady hand to sculpt and paint fine features on a model an inch and a quarter tall.
... thinking about it, those traits can probably explain why I picked up high scores in air rifle shooting so soon after I first tried it.

Anyway, what I tend to do is find a picture I like, then turn it into a model as best I can. I'm afraid I don't have any pictures to hand, but I've got a couple I'm working on at the moment, and I'll show those to you when they're done.
