Recommended Posts

I'm starting this thread in the hopes that our distinguished elderly shooters will also chime in...

 

You know that you're a Super Senior when the 12 moa dot on your open gun is too small.

You know that you're a Super Senior when you take off running at full speed and the RO has to slow down to a crawl so he doesn't pass you.

Five years ago, I asked a Master shooter with whom I was squadded,

 

"What can I do to get faster?", 

 

and he responded 

 

"GET YOUNGER".    <_<

 

So, I shot him - it was a pleasant day    .  :P

You order wrong on that verse (not surprising considering the topic of this post:lol:) It goes "I'm not as good as I once was, but I'm as good as I ever was....once!"

 

Stepped on it on this one.

Is 60 considered a senior? Hope not. :huh:

55 is senior category in USPSA. 65 is super senior.

Had a super senior ask me where the marks were to put his toes this weekend. I said your toes are touching them already. He said he would take my word for it since he couldn't see them. :)

Evidently the USPSA web site doesn't always agree with itself:

 

USPSA - Frequently Asked Questions 
 

Can you sign me up as a senior? Do I get a senior discount on my membership?

 

New life members aged 55 or over may take a $150 discount leaving a dues payment of $350. Proof of age is required. Competitors aged 60-65 may register for matches as senior. Those 65 or older may register as super senior. There is no “senior” membership.

Yeah that's a misprint. I have been registering as a senior since turning 55.
