Well, Padre, I for one am proud to know that someone our age (I assume we about the same age because I got the same treatment) got the better of the young whipper snappers. WTG.

It always makes me smile when the old school beats the new breed, ( which happens often), and with " antiquated weapons to boot.
I've had the honor of having the highest score every qual session for the last 17 years. Started with the 357 mag, then 10mm, then 9mm and now 40.
A lot of these newcomers couldn't hit a bull in the butt with a bass fiddle.
Ignorance is a long way from stupid, but left unchecked, can get there real fast.

I'm seriously concerned about a class of cadets that isn't smart enough to know better than to doubt the "old" guy with a gun, 1911 or otherwise. Kids . . . what are you gonna do?
Once, back in my military days, I had a young pup (all-about-me, Gen X type) threaten to kick my butt. I agreed that he might be able to, but I guaranteed him he'd never give an instant's thought about trying for seconds because there wouldn't be enough of him left to try it. He quickly backed down and never crossed the "old" guy again.

Shot my first "Practical Pistol" course with a .357 Ruger Blackhawk and took first due to 100% hits. My time was slow, but the accuracy paid off. At the time it was the only centerfire handgun I owned.

I would rather live my life as if there is a God,
And die to find out there isn't, than live my life
As if there isn't, and die to find out there is.
