Maybe you are getting younger?

Yeah. like "The Picture of Dorian Gray"

Or, better yet.......Bob Dylan's "My Back Pages"
Why can't I find a video of Dylan singing that on youtube?

At 51, Im not over the hill but I can damn sure see the top of it! Hell, I did more work Yesterday on my Day of rest than most youngsters could do in a week! Lets see, Up at 4:30 AM, by 8:00 had cleaned the pellet stove and most of my woodshop/swamp up, by 10:00 had built a new shelf system for our pantry, by 2:00 had received, broken down, moved by hand and stashed 2 ton of wood pellets. After that, I did a little work on my 88 Mercedes Wagon, finished building my Poor Mans Bakers Rack Hard top Tonneau Cover for my PU Truck and restocked the pantry I rebuilt. Everything done before 4:30PM, Only gave blood a couple times, not a bad days work if I dont say so myself! Funny that people actually pay to go to some place to work out instead of paying themselves to DIY and get a workout at the same time!

Im not worried about the kiddies outperforming me, not on my worst day, not yet anyways!

Wow. That much physical work in that amount of time would have killed me.

And I agree. One of the most muscular men I know gets that way just by going to his job every day.

I lift weights and do hard physical labor, about every day.

So what exactly do you do? Just test firing?

That would be almost like getting a job testing sex toys. Freaking amazing to begin with, and then later on... "OMFG it hurts so bad..."

It's already there... I fire each weapon for function. Only ruger's semi auto handguns though.
