I'm 39 and just getting started. Only been to 2 games so far. And I've got 2 AEG's and a full metal blow back pistol in the fold already. Went to a game last night to ask players about their kits and what to do with lipo batteries, watched some action but didn't play.
Next week I'll be bringing a guy who's 43 with me to his first game - age is age my friend, you can't stop the clock. It's feeling young that counts. And, lets face it, 40 isn't that old at all - the really young don't get it, the really old don't remember it. We're in the prime of life - now go fire that weapon downrange and tag you some baddies
