    Here are a couple for ya then

    If Jack Bauer was gay, his name would be Chuck Norris.

    Jack Bauer once grew a beard to rival that of Chuck Norris. In the only episode of 24 where Jack has that beard, he shot a man through his heart and cut his head off. He then shaved that beard to show up Chuck. What has your beard done lately, Norris?

    Season 5 of 24 was supposed to be Jack Bauer fighting Chuck Norris and Vin Diesel. This idea was abandoned when Jack defeated them and nothing else could be found to fill the other 23 hours and 59 minutes.

    I’m a Gen X'er with a pile of semis, not one revolver. I can honestly say that came to be through circumstance, not a dislike of revos, and that I’d like to have several someday.

    Growing up, my exposure to Miami Vice. Magnum PI (carrying a service 45 oddly enough) and countless movies planted the image of what a handgun was/is. Through today, none of that has changed, and real world incidents like the LA Police shootout in ’97 only bolster the premise that people intent on harm don’t come lightly armed and rarely one at a time.

    Old enough to purchase my own now, semis were the natural choice, simply due to the volume of fire and quick reloading, whether the situation be self-defense or a skills match - even target shooting.

    As a final note, my second biggest curiosity after walking into a gun shop (after what’s in the cases) is what’s on the hips of those behind ‘em. More often than not, the ten-pointers have a revolver and the young bucks a semi-auto. It may just be in my later years I’ll have the chance to ask for and receive back for inspection a ‘plasma rifle’. If so, God help the BG with a semi-auto…

    Well I am going to have my 21st birthday PARTY in April ( still have not got it right yet) and I am an auto fan. Me and St. John M. Browning design have been good friends since Dec. 1969.

    I'm an old in training. I just turned 47. Can't believe I'm approaching a half century.

    If your approaching the half-century mark, I guess I'm leaving it.

    Life still looks good on the other side.

    Gee, am I now approaching the century mark?

    Century!!! Holy smoke! Ah, I thought that about fifty year olds when I was twenty. Now I'm almost fifty and it doesn't seem as old as I thought.

    Its kinda embarrassing to think back about how I viewed those "old folks" in their 50's, now that I am here.



    And now, 70 doesn't look so bad, either.

    My dad is 79. I use to think that as ancient but that’s only 32 years away for me.

    We do talk about other things besides guns. This is a place where people with like interests can get together and discuss their hobbies and maybe life in general. Nothing wrong with that is there?

    Talking

    I seem to be in an age group not listed - 80 -81 year old group. I shoot every week and get a 100 mile ride on my motorcycle once a week - weather permitting - which it hasn't the past 2 weeks. Had to settle with repairing the snowblower and installing new drive belts.









    Next week, maybe.
