    I'm officially old!

    I was starting to think I had become officially old when AARP started sending me membership packets. But, I figured if I ignored them, then they didn't count and I was safe.

    But, it's finally happening. I will be officially old in January. My son just informed me that I'm going to be a grandfather. So, my wife says, "You can't buy any more toys"

    She also told me I can't go through a mid-life crisis since I'm now beyond middle-age.

    Anyone know of any retirement homes with a gun range?

    Shiiiiiiiit- in this day and age? People can be grandparents before they get out of college. It's not the mile-marker it used to be.

    I'm on the way to Grandfather status too. My daughter just told us she's due in April.....which means I'll be 60 and retired before I get to babysit my grandkid!!

    I don't have any kids, but my little brother became a grandfather last year. That made me feel old.

    That is why our masters in Washington are so anxious to disarm us. They are not afraid of criminals. They are afraid of a populace which cannot be subdued by tyrants. Jeff Cooper'

    No more toys? No way! Someone's got to field test them before the young 'un hurts themselves with them. And that super deluxe power saw's just not going to buy itself, you know. And we won't even talk about Baby's First Firearm.

    Already dusted off the trusty Daisy airrifle. Perfect way to learn about guns and gun safety.....even if I get a granddaughter.

    I knew I was old when I was training a hot young rookie, and found out I went to H.S. with her father, and he was a year behind me!

    Your old when the kid you babysat for becomes a father! X 3!

    I prefer to think that I'm well seasoned! I have some salt in my hair after all!

    How about when I trained a man in the Police Academy, then years later trained his son in the same academy.
