    This thread has been dead for a bit and we have a fair number of new folks.

    So add on, or read and see what the old farts do!

    I just reread this entire thread just for kicks. Surprising how many of us old farts are ex military or law enforcement or both and still play with guns. All in all, we are a very diverse group with some amazing jobs. I think it's great that we can share our experiences and services. Keep the work in the family, so to speak.
    I went on my first plains game hunt in April and caught the usual flak from the bambis when I got home. Kind of shut them up when I told them I am not a killer, I am a Purveyor of Fresh Meat to the Local Population. Most of them understood better when I explained the situation of the native people. I plan to continue that service next year when I return for a buff hunt (hopefully).

    Electrical engineering technologist/power systems electrician. Working as a site supervisor for a high voltage construction/commissioning company.

    After 13 years, I have lost interest in the trade, deciding if a new direction is in order. Preferably on a beach!

    Retired in 1999 from manufacturing engineering and program management. Most of my career I designed tools of some kind or another from simple holding/assembly fixtures to automated machines and HASS fixturing.

    I'd like to add just a word of thanks to all you military veterans, firemen and police officers for keeping us free and safe to do our jobs!
