    Just curious about the paticipants in this forum

    I am posting this here on the assumption that most members visit the General Firearms Discussion board more than any other single one.

    As I was reading another thread, someone was called an "Old Coot", and I started to wonder....What is the median age of folks that log in here?

    Thanks for your responses.

    Getting old is kind of like being a used car, after you get used to the verbiage, the rest really isn't so bad...yet.

    23. But feel triple that most of the time.

    69, but most people think I'm a lot younger than that and I act a lot younger than that. A whole lot of age is mental attitude. I know people who are 20 years younger than me who are "old", and I know people my age and older who are "young". I'll consider myself "old" when I can no longer ride my Harley, shoot my guns, and no longer appreciate looking at pretty women.

    I'm 51... and I'm slowing up.I'm gettin to where 3 good men....IF they practiced daily MIGHT be able to whoop me...but only if they practiced together. On the other hand, I'm old enough that when I cheat to win....no one'll will give it a second thought.

    I can still outfight,outhink,outcuss,outshoot and outclass people half my age. I appreciate fine wine,old guns, straight shooting, the truth and a smart woman, although I'm begginging to appreciate sharp brains more than sharp looks. I'm still looking for great gun deals, honest laywers and politicians that dont speak with a forked tongue...

    and here lately...I've put air conditioning into one of the top two things invented by man...second only to the electricity it takes to run it.
