  1. I thought the same thing. I’m just a couple months from 60, if anyone calls me elderly I’ll beat them with my walker.

  2. That all depends (no pun intended). I feel young mentally. Physically, well, that’s another story. Decades of work in wood products mills, and subsequent work on rivers, creeks, and at sea have me pretty wore out, not to mention the broken bones and arthritis. The cancer didn’t help either. I’m pushing 59, and feel like I’m 70. At the Local Kroeger store, I went to purchase an AR 15 on sale, and was happily surprised to find it was senior day, and I got an additional hundred bucks off! I’m not complaining. How’s that for a short answer? 🙂

  3. Being 60+ is the new forty. I’m 62 and in reasonable health and I don’t feel like I’m that old. I still feel like I’m a lot younger although my daughter thinks I’m getting to geezer status because I have a tendency to tell the same old stories over and over like my 86 year old Dad and my late Father in law. And I have old guy syndrome, I pee a lot more than I used to. Old guys and gals rule!

  4. At 60, I am middle aged.
    There would be far fewer crimes like these if the retaliation was given more coverage.
    Most people, criminals included, think people fighting back is rare, or doesn’t exist.

  5. To add to this: Since I retired (I am currently 65) I once again took up the game of bowling. I now bowl better than I ever did in my ‘prime’, carrying a solid 197 average, and give my 30 something son a real run for his money! Elderly indeed!!

  6. Did you all notice that neither the video nor the printed story mentioned the name of the perp. No photo either. Hmmm.

  7. It’s a top secret location where they also have an automotive section, a garden center, and a sporting goods section. They always have a great selection of “popular” firearms. There’s a pharmacy, bank, jewelry store, eye glasses place, and a florists shop. Unfortunately Starbucks is there as well. Now that you mention it, Kroegers welcomes gun owners, but Starbucks does not. Hmmm? Most folks don’t call it Kroegers here, but I guess they do, way east of here on the North left coast. “Fred Meyer”.
    Oh yeah, I sold that gun.
