For all of us mature shooters! I know one thing "GETTING OLD AIN'T FOR SISSIES"!

Went back for a recertification to the State LE Sniper/Marksman Instructor School this past year! I can hardly do what I use to do with little effort. And to be honest! It liked to "Kicked My Arsss" and it was dragging this trip. I was beat at the end of each day and honestly Damn glad to head home at the end of the class!

as my father tells us, everyday above ground is a good day. and if we all live long enough, we all get to grow old.
50?? My Gawd Axxe...I got underwear that old....you gotta lot of time left to
be a pain in the arse to all the anti-gun fanatics. Wait until the doc quits asking your age and pulls your hat off to count the rings on the top of your head...then you'll be old like me.

She'd need to take it to Jamaica and if she got that far, I'm not sure they would let her leave.

Hey wait.....I could go down and brake her out of prison with my mod super powers!

Second thought, Winds leave your Ruger home, I've got enough guns to keep you busy for your entire stay!

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

That's what I want to hear.

I really don't want to hassle flying with firearms to my son's wedding. I'll be stressed enough. And I'm a white knucke, nervous flier.

Three old men are talking about their aches, pains and bodily dysfunctions.

One seventy-five year old man says, "I have this problem. I wake up every morning at seven and it takes me twenty minutes to pee."

An eighty year old man says, "My case is worse. I get up at eight and I sit there and grunt and groan for half an hour before I finally have a bowel movement."

The ninety year old man says, "At seven I pee like a horse, at eight I crap like a cow."

"So what's your problem?" asked the others.

"I don't wake up until nine."

My achy, arthritic joints are particularly painful tonight. I'm taking two Advil and hitting the sack.

Didn't read all the posts so may be somewhat off base...


Just saying,my eyes seem to be getting better with age.....it's either that or the skills have gotten way sharper?Been on a mission for the last cpl years to really buckle down on my Dbl action revolver craft.Not fast....just slow,smooth precision.It has been one of the most rewarding in the sense of work=results.

We have 4 wonderful grown sons....they've all shot handguns since diapers.Between them and their friends(some professionals in this group).....Bring it on,is all I can say,WRT hitting what we're aiming at.Yup,I have O.L.D.....but these kids better bring their "A" game,just sayin.
