51 and a younger member of some clubs I belong to. In other clubs, I’m middle of the road. I’ve yet to be an old miserable git that fears change and the youth. This is why some clubs are dying out as they don’t embrace the teenagers and air soft.

Too old, although just managed to sneak in below 50

Not sure how old the youngest members are at the clubs im a member of although my 13 yr old daughter is a fairly good shot and full member of both of them, dare i say better than me when shes on form with a .22 hopefully the enthusiasm will stay as she gets older

It is a well known fact that after turning 50 it starts to hurt everywhere...

What gets me is at 50 I’d finally matured & sorted my life out but now I’m not fit enough to pursue anything properly, can’t even bloody see properly.

I remember being sat in the dining hall at school & we were all working out how old we’d be in the year 2000, mine came out at 34 & we all fell about laughing, thirty four.

Ah, there is a plus side eventually... I had cataract surgery on my right eye a couple of years ago and all of a sudden I can see out of it! I have even moved to target shooting with open sights and am having more fun shooting than I have done in years. (I am 62 years old now)
