    Since we have so many members, now well over 13,000 I was just curious as to the age distribution of our members. If you would, please indicate which age group you are in.

    Thanks

    I knew you were going to be off a year so that's why I made the 10 year spreads in each age category.;);)

    I'm shocked that I appear to be in the majority age group. I guess this stuff is catching on!

    I am a ripe old 24, however commercial fishing since the age of 12 my joints think I'm double that. But if you asked my wife when I get around my guns I'm like an overexcited 10 year old on Christmas.

    I have a theory why my age group and younger are not as active on this site... Long range hunting is not a sport for those faint of wallet. Out of the shooting disciplines it is one of the more costly to enter and maintain. We young-uns for the most part have not accumulated the extra income needed for a decent long range setup(ie. rifle, optics, loading setup, rangefinder, pda with exbal, kestrel...). I would of got in to the game three years ago but it took a lot of saving and a second job in college to buy my first rig.

    Its good though, this is probably the most civil forum I've ever read. It allows me to practice the art of learning from those who have been there, done that.

    I'd have to agree. That is probably a very good assessment the long range game.;)

    Thanks. I think a lot of people would agree with that.;)
