50 in a month's time.

I don't feel like I should be 50. 50 still seems an old person to me and I just don't feel that old (mature) yet

I used to meet up with a couple of 'older' ladies for coffee every morning and complained of aching one day, they both said 'Wait until you get to 50' - Some of the wisest words I have ever heard.

50 years old

I suppose the lack of young shooters could be down to the cost of getting started. I know the .22lr isn't so bad but when you think of the cost of a decent .308 for example then a lot of youngsters would consider it a LOT of money to lay out for something they would rarely use in comparison to other hobbies/inteests they may have.

I know my lad (21 Years old) enjoys our weekly trips to the indoor air range we go to but he has no interest in going full bore. Prefers to spend his money on his motorbike & X-Box.

Just my tuppence worth
