    Hi Gang
    I was wondering what other hobbies or events you guys enjoy, besides slot cars, of course. I enjoy restoring vintage Indy Cars, Sprint Cars & Midgets, 1:1 scale car shows, anything that races on dirt, photography (even though I'm not real good at it), driving race cars, and sometimes helping a friend of mine with his 1:1 Jet Funny Car. My wife enjoys both slot cars and the 1:1 cars too!

    Target shooting if you can believe that. Even with my Parkinson's. For the last 2 years it's been mostly small caliber stuff, .22, .17HMR and some .17HM2. For many years I shot with a Brown Model 97D, single shot, falling block 6.5mm but the recoil was killing me. I have also used a Remmington 700 with a Bell and Carlson custom stock in 7mm-08, that's my primary hunter as well.

    I have found that when I hold my breath for 10 seconds my tremors would disappear and I could shoot more accurately. Now that I have an electronic pacemaker and better meds I still hold my breath but I don't have to turn blue beofre I get the shot out down range.

    I also collect WW2 bolt action infantry and sniper rifles and have nearly 20 in my collection.
