    Well, I haven't been here that long, but when I went into the military, they issued me a club and said I had to kill my uniform.

    I'd use mine for most of the posts that start with; "Well, ......." I always read that word at the beginning of a post in italics in my mind.:evil:

    I'd keep the rest in reserve for users of "prolly".:neener:

    TRS80 was my second computer, after my Timex Sinclair. We thought the Commodore 64 was the greatest thing ever. No, I forgot, TI 99 was my second, ztrs80 was third.. I was building 286 and 386 clones in high school, about the same time I was learning how to reload 30-30 and 30-06.

    That would explain a lot of things.:confused: :alien:

    I’m pretty sure I have rocks in my back yard that are younger than some THR folks...

    :neener:

    I’m personally a spring chicken...born during the Kennedy administration.

    I was born the day that he was re-elected.
    This upset my mother no end.
    She was a dyed-in-the-wool Democrat.

    I’d be happy with some type of long sleeved t-shirt* I can wear to the range. With a commemorative emblem celebrating the two decade milestone. Have The High Road spelled out down one of the arms.

    *I like to conceal my guns in public.

    Since we're wandering off topic anyway (my first computer was a Rainbow 500), how many guns do you own that are older than you are?

    For me the answer is two.

    I was born in the middle of the Reagan administration. I’m starting to feel old. My oldest 2 were born under Obama and my little one was born during the trump years. Seems like a long time ago thinking about it in terms of presidents.

    I was born in 1983; I think I own four guns made after the year 2000. I have half a dozen significantly older than my own age. My oldest is a Bannerman Krag made in February, 1899.

    Since we're going there, the first computers I ever used (K-5th grade, so 1988-1995) were Apple Mac 1 and 2e, followed by an 8086 IBM, and I think a TRS-80.

    The first computer I ever had at home (and got on the Internet with) was an IBM clone I do not exactly remember now, but I recall that it was top-end at the time. 386 architecture, a whopping 66MHz AMD chipset, 16MB single density RAM (which got added to run Papyrus Games NASCAR Racing 2), 16MB SATA HD (the install of Windows 3.1 took up most of the dang thing), and a 14400-baud modem.

    I spent many hours on this newfound Internet thingy drooling over 1911s and Browning H-Powers.

    (Cue AOL dial-up sound.)
    "GOOD-BYE!"
    "WHO PICKED UP THE PHONE?!"

    When I was 14, I spent many hours "drooling" over the Model 70 "Westerner" in the 1962 Winchester-Western catalogs my folks had in their country store/gas station.:D
    BTW, I still have a couple of those 1962 catalogs, and I still have the Model 100 (.308 Winchester) Mom and Dad bought for me from the wholesale company that supplied them. I never did get a Model 70 "Westerner" .264 Win Mag. Except for the .270 Winchester I bought and used for a few years back in the '70s, I've pretty much stuck with thirty caliber rifles for deer hunting - just personal preference, not wanting to start any "best caliber for deer" discussion.:thumbup:

    Yup, a meteor had nothing to do with them disappearing.

    My profile here says that I joined in '04 but it was earlier than that. I think there was a re-set or something..? o_O
    Anyway, been hanging out here for more than a while I guess.

    Mine was a Commodore Vic 20, with aforementioned tape drive. State of the art.
