    The day my Dad retired, he took off his watch and placed it in a drawer. Later I ask him what day it was and he answered, "What does it matter''? Life is like that. Age changes perspective. Time is only important if you are reacting to someone...

    As I gain maturity, I get just as much, or more pleasure out of tiny holes, close together, at a great distance, on paper, as seeing an animal fall at the crack if my rifle. I now have issues walking and it's easier to traverse the mowed grassy...

    Eye of squirrel is impossible when even the head of the squirrel is hard to see. Age offers you new challenges. Even center mass is a small target.

    I don't imagine today's youth will ever see guns at reasonable prices sold OTC. And today's ventage surplus military rifles will never come to pass again.

    We have a new store nearby, but it's not the same as the old surplus. Gone are the days of the great deals for young guys. Everything now is unfamiliar new stuff. Guess I just dated myself.
