    Semi-Auto for young only????

    :-D :-D :-D :-D :-D :-D
    I guess that Bob doesn't think us older guys like Semi Auto Pistols as the revolver poll goes to 60 + while this one stops at 59.

    I noticed that. He probably thinks that the Auto's are to much for the older ones to handle. They need something like a single action revolver. :-D Just kidding !!!

    What does picking an auto over a revolver or vice versa have to do with age and wisdom?

    And you do remember what "they" say when you assume something, don't you? 8)

    I will say this, we've paid for 'em. By the time a man gets this far along in life, its a case of "Been there. Done that."

    You're right, Bob. That's why we've got the semi-autos.

    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.
