I turn fossil fuels and plain ol' air into a hazardous by-product. And I actually, I pay for the opportunity.

Thanks RRR! Like everyone else, it definitely has its moments. But, I'm thankful to have a job...that's a big deal these days. And, is going to become all the more true if this country doesn't get on track in a lot of areas including my own field. Sorry, another topic for another day :D

 

Great topic and very interesting to see the diversity out there...what a wonderful community of cowboys and gals!

Most folks that know me think my main job is my laser engraving business. Really I am a CNC adn CAD/ CAM specialist and a trained toolmaker. Been doing this for some time after I left teaching high school shop. I also teach part time for the local branch of University of Cincinnati.

Grandpa always said "Find something you're good at and you enjoy doing and get someone to pay you to do it"

 

 

I'd have it made if I could find someone to pay me to drink whiskey and make love to super models :P

 

I think Charlie Sheen already has this job

Retired in '96 after 30 years working for the Old Ma Bell (when they gave a hoot).

 

When my 401K went bye, bye, I started an engraving business.

 

Was a radio DJ and also DJ'd dances on the side for 17 years.

 

I interview as often as I can to be a personel manager for Hooters.

 

Most of the time I'm working on cowboy stuff, pretty much 24/7.

In Sheen's case you'd have to add snort cocaine after drink whiskey and substitute hookers/porn stars for super models.

Well, unfortunately - I am not brick mason, plumber or a Dr.

For the last 10 years, I was the firearms manager for a national Pawnshop chain - I handled all the firearms liquidation, regulatory compliance, safety training and internal policy creation.

When the economy went south (and yes, it goes south for pawnshops as well as everything else) - my job got transferred to the corporate offices in Ft. Worth.

So I became an unemployed bum.

My family owns a gunshop here in Nevada and I am a Concealed Weapons Instructor, so I have been surviving by doing CCW classes and new shooter training sessions.

Hopefully, things get better and I can get back to bossing other folks around pretty soon.

God bless ye brother, now I know where your knowledge of firearms comes from. Yours is a tail thats nationwide. Tha people of this great nation will hurt only so long.

After 25 years in the title insurance industry in Los Angeles, i was downsized and turned the lemon into lemonade.

 

Went back to school and earned my BS (in Marine Biology) and MS (Animal Behavior/ecology) and finished just before my 50th birthday. Did my thesis on the habits of urban black bears.

Went to work for the Feds as a Wildlife Biologist. After 6-7 years as a Branch Chief, I just took a transfer back to working as a Bio instead of a Supervisor

(which I didn't want in the first place!).

 

So, as Michael Crichton once said:" Field Biology is for people who want to get paid for going camping". I sometimes even have to use my "aquatic vertebrate

sampling tool" (fly rod)to sample what species are present.

 

And they paid to move me from Sacramento to the Cascades! And getting paid (sometimes) to fly fish, to boot. Aaahhhh!!! the benefits of a college education.

 

Seriously, I work hard at my job but the benefits are great, even if the pay isn't!

 

Looking forward to working another 7-8 years and then earning my Ph.D. when I retire.

Hey Turkey Legs.

 

Yep, I remember you.

You had to much class and inner beauty to become one of those plastic dolls with fake smiles.

 

Ifn I don't see you at the Smoky Mtn ShootOut, I surely hope to see you at GOA.

I got my first computer programming job in 1958 in private industry (was a math major) on an IBM 305 Ramac and an IBM 650; then an RCA 501; then an IBM 1401; then an IBM 1410; then an IBM 1460 then IBM 360's; etc. Started with the U.S. AEC in 1972. Retired at the end of 2000 from the U.S. DOE. My only regret is not starting with the U.S. Gov't in 1962 when I had the chance. It would have added a bunch to my retirement.

 

The only thing I really miss about work was being the range master for the AEC range at work. It was tough duty.

Former Law Enforcement, then Corporate Security/Health & Safety, and now Assistant Director of Security for large resort hotel.

Lucky to have a job with things they way they are.

But... sure wish that I had a day gig with weekends off so that I could attend a shoot not being sleep deprived. :D

Thanks, but ya know...Out of all things - there are opportunities.

 

I am spending more time with my daughter - I accepted an officers position in one of our local clubs (never had the free time before) - I have more time for dry fire practice (not using it, but I have more time if I wanted to) and eventually something will shake loose.

Another job - Win the World Series of Poker - Hit the Powerball Lottery - Find a rich woman. :lol:

God will provide.
