I'm approaching 84 pretty soon and carry a S&W 642 in my pocket every day all day. Main reason I pocket carry is I wear coveralls about 90% of the time and no belt, no other place to conceal one. Can't draw real fast unless I have advance warning and then I have my hand in my pocket with revolver halfway out. If I had to quick draw from outside my pocket I would probably be pretty slow and in trouble but that's a chance I take.

I was born with a single action revolver in my hand from what I hear. I'm 44. I moved to semi autos as primary SD weapons several years ago, but they aren't the first thing I grab when it's time to show the kids up on range day.

WOW! Do you realize that most of us have progressed into an older group than when you first posted?

I think we should have to fire ammunition that matches our age.
If you're 9, then 9 mm
IF you're 30 and 6 months, then 30 ought 6
(Hope I don't make it to 90, won't be able to raise it, much less handle the recoil)

Neither Ruger nor Colt make a .77 Single Action.

I thought there might be an over 70 group. I'm 73 and own:
11 - semi autos
2- .22's
1 - .380
4 - 9 mm
3 - 9x18 Mak
1 - .45 ACP

8 - revolvers
1 - .32
4 - .38
2 - .357
1 - S & W 500
I guess my Beretta 92A1 and Glock 19 Gen 4 are two of my favorite semi autos. My S & W .38 Airweight would be my preference in revolvers.

IDK 65, 56, 39, 93 who cares my trigger finger works, still have good aim at 65 lol.

Autos, revolvers what's the diff? Autos I can take them or leave them, 1911/45acp I can take you to church at the range.
Revolvers we're going to the 100yd range. Nothing is out of touch. Practice, practice practice,,,,,,,,,,

I been there when dynosaurs and muscle cars ruled the planet. These little rice burners couldn't hold a candle to a build Chevy big block power. It's ground shaking fear.

Hey, putting the 60 - over 60 group at the bottom of the list makes us feel really old.

Like, maybe we shouldn't be buying green bananas.

One year older then last year physically. Mentally I've stabilized , I've been rejuvenated since the election of trump.
can you imagine if Hillary had won, I would mentally, possibly physically age at an abnormal rate.
For those atheists or those that need a sign from above,,,,,We GOT IT. :smt038

I guess I must be old cause I can't remember. I love revolvers for some reason. All the shooting I have done, I have yet to wear a gun out - imagine that.

Depends on one's definition of wearing out, IMO.

What is your consideration of wearing out? It differs from each user. IMO , there's not many wrong answers here.
But preferences may differ from one user to the next.
