The opposite to red dots and like pine martin suggested.
Three things that make you happy.

1) the excitement and a sleepless night while getting ready to go stalking. Bloody love getting my gear together.

2) family, including my dogs and life style.

3) good food and whiskey.

Leaving aside the pleasure of family and good friends.....

Catching a salmon
Working my cocker spaniels
Being quite content to simply watch a deer that's out of season, or on ground that I don't have the stalking rights to, without feeling the need to kill it

1. A reliable source of hot water (7 years in a high altitude Kenyan boarding school with no functional boilers means I have a very keen appreciation for a good shower).
2. A well made cup of tea at *exactly* the right moment.
3. Unsolicited praise.

1. Waking up every morning looking at my three Chessies looking at me
2. Waking up every morning
3. Licking my ludicrously expensive shotguns and trying to get my toungue out the choke end

1. The random things my two year old son says and does that gives me the biggest smile
2. Like Mungo, a cuppa exactly when it's most needed
3. The feeling of being dog tired after a day's hard graft outdoors (usually complimented with a nice cuppa)

It tends to follow in life that those things that will make you unhappy will also make you happy.
Things like a cup of tea, which will burn you and then when cool enough make you feel great.
Kids the perfect example will drive you round the bend, you will argue and shout at them and then they will be the best thing that has ever happened to you.
So my answer is exactly as the other thread,
1. Everything

1. Expensive Rifles
2. Expensive Scopes
3. Expensive Scope Rings & Mounts


1. My Daughter's smile
2. Music
3. Squirrel hunting with an accurate 22 rimfire given off pleasing lines and timber.
