    I'm getting too old for this.

    I closing in on 40 (real close).

    I was day dreaming about my next firearm purchase, when I realised I've been having the 10mm vs 44 mag and what ar-15 to buy yet again. Then it hit, I'm getting to old for this. The time is now or never, because 10 more years of thinking about it is a waste of time.

    So to any 20 year olds to those pushing 30. Best gun advise I can give you is follow safety standards and just go buy it. Forget talking about it, just go buy it.

    40 is still a kid, be we do only go around once. If you want something and can afford it, get it.

    Convert your fiat dollars before they become worthless into durable goods, especially precious metals like Stainless Steel, Lead, Silver, and Gold. When the government tries to confiscate silver, gold, and stainless steel, they can have the lead, too.

    Buy it now. Once you get some real age on you, you'll come to realize you could not afford many of the things you bought in those younger years. Ignorance and youth, how blisful.

    The 40s were great years and I'm enjoying my 50s now with 60s ahead in my headlights. Enjoy life as it comes at you and be safe since there are no trial runs and no reruns. Stay out of large debt and keep on the healthy side, that way you got 99 percent of worries out of the way.

    Well, I got officially old this past December and went on Medicare. Once you retire, you really do not have the money you once had. Life's a ***** and you know what comes next.

    If I had the money there would be a lot more guns in my collection. At this point I just keep a few choice guns on hand. They are carry guns and practical ones that I know I will use. I need a decent rifle and I will be set for all of my practical needs.

    If I knew in my 40's what I know now in my 60's, I'd have 2 houses. 1 to live in and 1 to store guns and ammo in!

    You think 40 is old? I've got ties older than you--And I still wear them!!!
    If I'd known I was going to live this long, I'd taken better care of myself when I was younger
