Hey I'm still young, but getting ornerier, and I sound like a bag of popcorn when I get out of bed in the morning... already getting arthritis in my hands, back and feet. Even if you met me in person, you'd be surprised at my age, most people think I'm in my early to mid 40's when they meet me.

I've still got a very long way to go (hopefully), I just turned 27 a little over a week ago.

Hey guys, the original quote was "age is character" and nothing about things getting better with age.

If things get better with age, I am approaching magnificent.
The new leverlution ammo will improve the range of the 30/30 considerably. The Marlin is easier to mount a scope but the Winchester is easier to clean. The newer Winchesters will take scope mounts. My old eyes dont handle open sights too well anymore.
