    I hit the big Five Oh this year and to celebrate I want to buy a handgun or long gun that was introduced to the market in 1959. Is there a web site or a source that lists start up years for guns?

    Remington Nylon 66
    Ruger Super Blackhawk .44 Magnum.
    Weatherby Mk V.

    New calibers that year were .22 WRM available to start only in Ruger and S&W revolvers, and .338 Win Mag.

    I'll be 50 next year, so I feel your "pain".

    But you deserve a nice new shiny gun!:evil:

    All you young guys are catching up with us old guys. Everything that happens bodily after fifty can no longer be brushed off as "Just Nothing" and every old injury reappears with vengeance.

    To you on your upcoming day; "HAPPY BIRTHDAY"

    Congrats. I'm going to be 25 this september and I don't want to. I miss 22, miss college, no responsibilities, four hours a day at the gym, and young pretty naive women within a hand's reach. And while I only owned a Ruger Blackhawk, Ruger 90, Arcus 94C, Rossi 817...well it was a long list then, and quite longer now. I keep telling myself that getting older means getting wiser, and it means getting a job that will allow me to have a more enjoyable life but....

    Dear Dweeb,
    Revel in your time. It sure beats the alternative. :)

    Like theotherwaldo said, get something in 50 caliber. But I would get something BIG for the big 50, think .50 BMG.

    Reports are that Bohica will be introducing a new .50 AR upper in the next few weeks for around $800!! It will be of the "shell holder type", but with that you can be shooting for close to $1K, which is quite a bargain.

    .50 Beowulf AR upper. Or the Remington 878 "Automaster".

    I was fifty last Tuesday. My wife suggested that to celebrate my half-century, we ought to spend a romantic weekend away in a nice hotel. As a kind and caring husband, I considered her proposal for a fleeting second … and bought this instead.:)

    When I turned 50, I finally got it all together. Now, at 55, I've forgot where I put it all.:confused:

    I turned 45 this year. I wonder what sort of significance that number might have? Hmmm.....
