    Just turned 50 and getting back into the sport. Was into it in my mid to late 20s, then "life" got in the way - marriage, kids, buying houses, starting a business, etc.

    I like shooting. I hope this "life" doesn't happen to me.

    Priorities...and limited resources and time. Given unlimited money life would go a different way of course. Time is the same for us all.
    Back in my 20s much of the shooting I see today wasn't around - trap or skeet (skeet was harder to find) and no sporting clays.
    The club local to me then was into PPC (police pistol combat, indoors, 50' range) and I did that in 22lr.
    Most were into 100 meter metal silhouette (pistol, T/C Contenders ruled). Not affordable for me, and not a lot of interest in it. I did some 22lr rifle silhouette shooting.

    I've since moved, married, changed a number of jobs and careers, and finally can afford to get back into it - we'll see how much time I can squeeze out. The local club does their PPC outside at 25 yards and multiple position and center fire only but they run it like a bowling league sorta - every wed evening for 20 weeks and you can 'shoot off' early and skip a week (or be ahead in case it rains...who wants to lay down on the ground in the rain?).
    They also do IDPA monthly and I think Steel Challenge as well but not as sure on that. Don't need to be a member to compete but I plan to join at their next meeting so I have range access for practice.

    No hobby is cheap if you're really into it and this one is no different. Kids take money, houses too as does starting a business. Time is the biggest factor though - or lack of it. I have time about 5 months of the year then they business gets busy. I camp, canoe, work on my house, have a dog I like to walk and train and mess about with R/C planes and helis. My wife has a management job so that keeps her busy too, and my kids play sports, son is the orchestra and I want to participate in their lives too.

    "Life" is great. Spent a week with the family and friends at Disneyworld this month - great fun! Alone it would not have been as much fun. Although there are times I miss apartment life and the single life it's not often. Few apartments would allow me to go shoot my 30-30 or 9 off the back porch and sharing my hobbies with my son is priceless.

    You are probably the hottest 102 year old I or anyone else has ever talked to.
