    In a moment of weakness I bid on this Smith & Wesson performance center Model 625 in 45 auto caliber. I like it!! :D Took it out and murdered beer cans on a remote county road. Now to get a set of grips that are a trifle more "subdued". ;)

    I dont race but ride a race bike occasionally taking her out on track days, the boots are more about the protection than the looks.
    Here in the UK and probably everywhere else in the world we ride like every motorist is trying to kill us, its the only way to stay alive o_O

    Think my last worthwhile purchase was my camera. It was the Nikon b700.

    But it fell of my tripod and broke. I hope to make my next purchase the Panasonic fz1000.

    I still use my Nikon D70 body with a 35mm - 85mm lense. Thinking of upgrading the body though

    A really cheap (less than 100$) 500mm with a 2X and a T mount to Sony E mount for my Sony A6500. Thanks to the IBIS on the camera, I can shot handheld at 500mm, but not at 1000mm.

    Bombardier,

    I feel your pain about people in cars "out to get you"! I was a motorcycle officer in my law enforcement days, and it sure felt like that to me at times! There was quite a bar fight in progress one evening and on my way over to help thump heads... er... I mean restore calm, I was going through an intersection. An elderly lady from my left side made a "rolling stop" and hit the gas. I *swear* I could read Buick on the hood ornament, she was so close to having me for a hood ornament! :eek:

    I cranked on the gas a little harder & we missed a collision. It was at that moment I realized my destiny was probably not being a motorcycle officer! Driving trains worked out much better! :)

    I have 9 months left in law enforcement, god knows what I will do afterwards. Still love the excitement of bikes though :)

    I recently bought an M1 carbine clone. Why? I found ammo, magazines and reloading dies in a closet. I put the Hubble telescope on it in preparation for prairie dogs. It's actually accurate!

    Also bought accessories for my Evil Black Rifle. Adjustable trigger, left hand safety, ergonomic grip and an improved scope. Also for whacking prairie dogs. They are considered vermin here. They ruin pasture, dig holes where horses or cattle can break a leg and can transmit bubonic plague. (really!)

    It's easy to get permission from ranchers to shoot on their property as long as you promise to shoot hundreds of them.
