    66 YO here. I own a few semi autos but I started with a Colt Bisley in 1956 and have preferred revolvers ever since, my current passion is older Colt DA, mostly 38 and 32 caliber. I have Colt, S&W, Ruger, Taurus, Rossi and have had Iver Johnson, H&R, and a few others over the years. Now, at this time in my life I shoot revolvers so that I don't have to pick up my cases, I just eject them into the collector ammo can, makes shooting much more enjoyable.

    21-29 eh?

    This poll is really interesting. The number of people above 50 is nearly equal to the number below. It's weird to me, several other forums I'm involved with maybe have a handful of folks over 50...

    wonder why so many on a handgun site? people into handgun's live longer? :P or....

    Poncaguy-- you know what, I think you are absolutely correct....I first bought a SR9....shot it thought wow...that's a big gun....the trigger was snappy and...hopefully, I'll get better...then I found a Sig 250sc 9mm....love the size..love the feel, the trigger is something I am having to get use to...as a carry piece I think it probably is perfect, but the snappy feel of the Ruger's trigger is always in the back of my mind....Now, I need to get a Ruger SR9c....oh well,...but Ruger is incredible. I do appreciate the long trigger now that I realize Sig designed the SubCompact as a carry gun....I look at them as what I can shoot well and what fits me. I have never been big on carrying because of the consequences that may happen...but for a range pistol I love the Ruger's trigger.

    Still goes back to car guy ford chevy arguement.I'm 57 and love both equally except for a polymer frame.Weight reduction is nice but the drawback is increased recoil.I read a article on a test for weapon choice for women.The polymer frame .380 was the least favorite because of recoil.Yes I'm so old I dust,but I prefer all steel in my weapon.Plastic is fine for grips but that is all in my book.The same was said about Eugene Stoners M-16 when 1st fielded in large numbers.It was called a mattel toy.It is now an iconic battle proven weapon system.Now alot of high grade rifle stocks are fiberglass or polymer based.I like a good quality snubby with a bobbed or shrouded hammer for the fact it can be fired through a jacket pocket without binding or a contact against shot fired without binding in the clothing with in which a semi could possibly bind up when the slide cycles.I carry a small CZ-82 because I am comfortable with carrying a 1911 in cocked and locked but this one has the ability to carry with hammer at half cock against a transfer bar like a revolver making 1st shot double action without worrying about a safety lever .The pull is a little stiffer but after the 1st round it has a great pull and I have 12 more rounds available.

    I like the ability of firing through a coat or jacket pocket without drawing.A definite edge

    Mr Right, you are right. With age does come wisdom. I haven't made the move to auto's and don't think I will. With good speed loader and a good S&W.....that's all I need.

    I am 47 and I have 4 semi autos but I just purchased the Ruger GP100 and the SP101. If I would have shot the Rugers before I purchased the semi autos I probable would not have. I shoot the revolvers much more accuretly that the semi autos.

    At 51, I have spent my entire adult life in the military or LE. I like them all. I have S&W and Ruger revolvers and steel and polymer auto's. My carry guns are Glock's, simply because for me they do what they do better than anything else. I carry a fighting gun because if I end up in a gun fight, that is what I want.

    WOW! I started this thread over six years ago. I was still working then, and now just turned seventy-five in November. Still have my looks, too!

    I made a similar remark to my doctor, to which he replied, "And your sense of humour."
