For the most part my crowd/posse are an older lot, as I am, and most have been there, done that, and have the scars to prove it.
For pure enjoyment on your part.
My usual gun range crowd consists of: One former French Foreign legionnaire--saw combat in Tunisia in the 60's, before coming to the US. Two former
USMC Korean war vets--uber nice guys. The others all either Vietnam veterans, or Gulf War. There's about nine of us. Then there's me...life long
civilian--though I am an Air Force brat. Needless to say, I stick out like a sore thumb. I'm the baby of the bunch at 53.
But the stories are incredible! Especially Mike--he's the legionnaire--his stories will curl your hair. If you don't have any, they'll regrow it,
then curl it--amazing, funny, many times horrific, never dull. Even after hearing 'em half a dozen times
. His stories are as good as his
shooting, and that's amazing.
I'm going to be hanging out at the range with 'em tomorrow, in fact. Hopefully, it's not too wet. Every one of us have creaky joints that don't
handle the wet like they used to.
I'm moving in a few months, and I'll miss 'em.
