    I've wanted to be a fireman since I was knee high to a grasshopper, taken the test and scored in the 90's for the past four years, go through the PT test, but always end up a few spots out. Budget cuts got me last year, went from 104 proposed cadets to less than 40. Made a 92 on the written this time, keeping my fingers crossed.

    I also applied for the Border Patrol, made a 97 on that test, should have an offer soon.

    I wish my current job as a self employed fence builder paid better, but it got me through college and it gave me plenty of free time, plus lots of time to hunt on the job. Number one is fireman, number two is the BP, after that I don't really know, I hate being in an office and I like to shoot, so it has to pay the ammo bills.:D

    I had one dream job already, and it turned into a nightmare...

    Associate Editor of American Rifleman magazine.


    So, I guess my back up dream job would have to be PhD of Art History, lecturing on American Art & Architecture.

    My dream job would be driving F1 cars for a certain Italian company headquartered in Maranello, Italy. [Need a hint? Click on my signature, ;)]

    During my days off, I'd like to have Jim Schatz's job. (He is the Director of Federal Operations for H&K Sterling.) :cool:

    Dream Job?

    Well, let's see:

    1st, pilot of a medical evacuation Bell Jet Ranger helicopter

    2nd, U.S. Secret Service Special Agent

    3rd, professional baseball player

    4th, head football coach at The University Of Tennessee

    5th, U.S. Army Delta team member


    Varied choices, most likely could have and should
    have been choice #2; as law enforcement was my time
    honored profession for 20+ year's. All I needed was the
    college degree, and to have been hired before the age
    of 37. Well, hindsight is 20/20; as I'm too damn old for
    any of these except maybe position #4? And my ole' bud
    Phil Fulmer is doing an excellent job; so I guess I will
    retire to my front poarch and drink cold glass'es of iced
    tea!:uhoh: :rolleyes: :D

    Best Wishes,
    Ala Dan, N.R.A. Life Member

    Almost anything but what I am doing right now! Actually I'vd already done one dream job and moved on as I find it hard to keep my feet planted for very long. And I have passed all the requisite entrance hurdles for my next dream job, Foreign Service Officer with US Dept. of State, but family commitments may dictate that go on the back burner.:(

    Oh well. I have long ago stopped defining myself by what I do to earn a living or care how others see me, it's only what my kids think of me as a dad and as a person that count to me.

    2nd the drag racer response.

    Either Top Fuel or Pro Stock

    Top Fuel:
    0-320 MPH in 4.7 seconds! Enough said

    Pro Stock:
    More action going on inside the car during the run.

    Drag racing has been called 'modern day gunslingers'; re: the re-action time to the christmas tree @ the start.

    BTW Funny Car guys are plain NUTS.
    6000 HP between your legs on a short wheel base car; just look at John Force :D

    Take Care

    Besides being the official taste tester at Jack Daniels, I would love to be involved in directing movies. I have an affection for what a camera can capture and a mind in understanding what it all takes for a production to come together.

    Since I have been in the workforce and a taxpayer since 1971 all I want to do is win some ridiculously large amount of money. Then my job would be to spend it. YEAH, THAT"S IT. :cool:
