    Just an oldman

    I am new to the site and have enjoyed what I have read thus far. Most likely I am one of the older age members.

    Ok, let me tell you about myself. I am in my 60's and an expert in accident & crime scene reconstruction. One of the areas of court expertise is in firearms as it applies to accidents and crimes as well as personal safety issues.

    I have been a gun collector and avid shooter since I was given my first shotgun at the age of 12 and then my first handgun at the age of 16. Now I have a sizable colelction of rifles, shotguns and handguns. Mostly my shooting is with handguns but also I hunt with rifles and shotguns.

    In addition to guns, my hobbies include photography, camping, boating and flying.

    Well, if you are in the extreme upper 60's you might be older than me. If not I will consider you just another one of the kid's running around on this Forum. Of course there are some here that view me in that light also.

    Whatever the case, welcome from Northern Arizona.

    Extremes

    I suppose I am in the upper 60 range a long time ago.

    While not ready to cash in my chips yet, I can say had I known I would live this long, I would have taken better care of myself.

    As to age, it has been said I was around when the Dead Sea was only Sick.

    Welcome!

    In my opinion, you should exercise your hobby and provide pictures of your pieces...the hand-held variety of course...

    I would be happy

    I would love to post some photos of my collection if I could figure how to do so.

    Heck, my photos of ladies would be nice as well but this is not the place for them. The only ones of interest to this site would be either the firearms or my personal photos to show how much ugly a man can have.

    welcome from nc!

    you mentioned you enjoy flying, do you own a plane yourself?

    my dad was an air force pilot for a while, and got back into flying a couple years back, so its one of my favorite things to do and be apart of.

    yes, I am a licensed pilot with SEL, MEL and IFR ratings. Since 1980, I have owned three planes, a Cherokee Six, a Cessna 172 and a Cessna 182. At present I am looking for number 4. If I can afford one, I would like to find a good Cessna 210.

    Depending on my health, finances and fuel prices, I may or may not get one in the near future.

    Welcome aboard from sunny Florida. I see you're looking around for a Cessna 210. There are some listed in Aero Trader. Good Luck.
