I thank you. Shooting is still one of the things that I really enjoy, even after all the years of competition and also having to carry as an LEO. I guess my next most enjoyable activity (firearms related) even after 43 years and being semi-retired, is still gunsmithing and of coarse, re-loading.

Actually, shooting is one of the few sports where us old farts can compete with the younger folks. I'm the oldest in our group of regulars at the bowling pin matches and I win my share. I grew up with football, softball, and other sports but the old joints just don't work as good as they once did...

37. Feels like 80 sometimes; act like I'm 12 all the time.

Voted but didn't post earlier....59 in August here. And speaking of us old farts, it looks like we're catching up with the "youngsters" in the poll.

Turned 48 on February 6th. Feel pretty damned good, aside from arthritis attacking some of my old injuries.
