Age related question (not the usual...)

Greetings all.

I'm currently in the process of getting AV'd but I do have a quick question. I'm not gonna ask if I'm old enough to play; my question is am I too old?

I guess I've come to airsoft a little later than most, I'm 45. I've seen various people at one of the local airsoft stores and for the most part they seem to range from very young (obviously there with their parents) to mid 20's. Are there any other middle aged newbies out there? Am I possibly getting too old to compete? I'd love to start playing but I don't want to be a hinderance to the people I'm playing with. I'm not as fast as I was in my 20's (who is?), my reaction times are slower than Sara Palin during a Katie Cordic interview and I have bad knees from too many years of abuse in my youth (damn you hockey...).

All kidding aside, I guess I just really want to know if I might be getting myself in over my head?
