    Talking Auto Pistol Age Groups

    one is from 1913, another from around 1960, a couple more from the 1970s, the rest from the 1980s, except my new baby, P226 made this year. yup, that is the age groups of my auto pistols.

    I turn 30 in February, but technically, I am 29, so I voted as a 29 year old...

    I wasn't sure where to vote. My present age is 48, but I got my first semi-auto pistol at 32.

    What about folks 60 and over? I'm just about there myself and I would hate to feel left out. As Shipwreck has threatened in a number of threads on this forum, I might have to hunt you down.

    You missed my group. I am 66. Remember, I lot of us old timers were raised shooting 1911's. Well, we called them .45Auto's in the old days.

    I don't like to think of myself as an old but I guess I'm getting there. I'm 54 and have been shooting since I was 5 or so. I have 10 semi-autos and one revolver- (soon to be three). I have a GP100 4in S/S, got a Colt Python 4in. blue on layaway and have my eye on a S&W M19 4in. Nickel. As you can tell, I love semi's but you can't beat a quality revolver!


    Edited to add: Through my years, I've owned many other revolvers and have shot many others, ie: S&W, Colt, Ruger, Charter Arms, Rossi, etc..... from .22LR to 44 mag. My statements here are at present time.

    Guess I fall into the "Damn Kids" area. But you would think that me only being 21 would mean that I wouldn't feel like I'm in my 60's.

    Bob, I am one more Old Fart wondering why we were left out.
    No offence intended but your picture made me think you were one of us!!

    I am 66 pushing 67 pretty hard.

    Enjoy

    Bob, I just went back to find your age and don't see you listed.

    What is it?

    Thumbs up

    It seems that not only am I the designated "OF" here but, even a year or so older than one member's dad!

    However, it's a position I seem to hold on all the motorcycle forums also. I never expected to reach 80 but am grateful for my good fortune. I would make claim that clean living does it but, I suspect there are some here who know me - non-smoker since 1959 but nave never been against a shot or two of Jim Beam before dinner. A more likely explanation is "Only the good die young". I even practiced general and thoracic surgery for nearly 40 years and surgeons aren't known for their longevity.



    I usually get my 100 mile ride on my Beemer (pic above) every week and put about 40 rounds through each of these weekly.



    or this (or another lever rifle)



    I have to ask, if you were a Marine in 1950 and were told this very young looking kid was your Assistant Battalion Surgeon - would that have instilled confidence - or given you even greater motivation to not get wounded?



    I think I'm holding up pretty well and even share freindship with our Scrub Jays who eat out of my hand.



    The other hand holds the Jim Beam. Think I have a few good years left in me.

    Really Old Cuss

    Well, I selected 50-59, but that's a lie. I just turned 60 in April. We need another group. "Older Than Dirt".

    Man I feel young... and so must six others, apparently.

    Eight months and I will legally qualify for a concealed-carry permit. Which means by the time I can carry a concealed handgun or weapon, I'll have already been trained as a civilian in advanced "carbine", handgun, and shotgun tactics, and be about a couple years shy of a law enforcement job, which means even more training. Might be working armed security in the near future, which would mean carrying on-duty before I can carry off-duty.

    Kinda funny that the law can't keep up with me.
