    Auto Pistol Age Group Round #2

    I hope I'm not stepping on Bobs toes too much. However, the first poll was started almost 2 and a half years ago, so I'm sure a few people have changed, and there were a few comments asking for more choices so here goes...

    Bob's a tough old goat and can handle it. I'm pleased to see I am allowed to exist a few more years. I was, at 68, fading fast in Bob's poll.

    -chuckles- Hell I'm hoping to eventually make it past the 80 mark myself and still be shooting. My grandfather is closing in on 76 and still occasionally pulls out his .22 rifle

    My Mother will be 80 next March. Still goes shooting with my Sister and BIL occasionally. She only shoots her .22 revolver and the once in a while flintlock long gun, operating the slide on a semi-auto is too difficult for her.

    Mmmm yea, girlfriends dad still goes hunting, at 73, and still amazes his sons with the accuracy of his shots.

    43. Nothing terribly amazing in the above post. Consider it years of practice. The younger ones just don't have that much practice under their belts yet.

    Got my first pistol at 44, but have shot rifles, shotguns and archery for years.

    Turned into a new addiction. My other addicition is fountain Pepsi drinks, one a day. Guess I could have worse addictions!!!!

    I'll be 45 in December. I hope to last as long as I can. I have my kids shooting now so I am pretty sure my guns will be going to good homes when I can use them anymore. Heh..My first 1911 stays with me though. I'll be buried with that one.

    Arizona issues a FREE Pioneer Hunting and Fishing license to long time residents when they reach 70. I want at least 1 year of free hunting and fishing before they kick me into the canyon. I don't want to waste a good gun down there with me though.

    Whaaaat? Let me hear this again when you're 83 and amazing your sons with your accuracy. I'm 56 this month and I just want to make 83, it'll be a plus if I can still see well enough to shoot.

    No kidding!!!!!

    Actually, I could see him saying something more like that's not the barn that is a mountain. Aim over there>.

    He would enjoy pulling tricks on me. Not that I would ever do that to him.

    I will be 27 in September and I have been messing around with guns for about 15 years. Just starting my collection back up again after a few years on the backburner.

    Haha... 19 here.

    I have a joint ownership with my dad on our CZ-75 SP01

    I figure learning the laws and being able to shoot proficiently before I am 21 will be extremely beneficial to me I plan on going out and getting registered for a class around February or March of... 2011...

    EDIT:

    I just got to reading the replies, and I am just now realizing that I am of a very small percentage (age-wise) of this forum
