Average Age Of Airsoft Enthusiast

Hey Guys, I am curious to find out the average age of the Canadian Airsoft Enthusiast.

Please take part in the Poll I have put up here, it's completely anonymous.

In Alberta these past couple of years, the average age has seemed to be 35-40. And there are quite a few guys in the 50+ bracket.

I used to be an older player by alot, now I'm about middle of the pack.

I can't answer your survey. There's no category for 18 year olds to tick.

Over the years, I have observed that the average airsofter "carrer" last about 2 years.

It would be interesting to have stats that could prove or disprove my observation.

I don't have the stats to concur but I certainly agree with you. That's an accurate observation to say the least.

Looks like I'm not the oldest fart on this board, but "till death do us part ain't that far off !

Oh well age is a state of mind right?

Besides as you get older, you get to treat yourself to a few of life's "finer things".

Here is a pic of me enjoying one of the "benefits of age" last year in Vegas!



I must say this was one of the better days in my life! LOL



Okay the SHOES may have been a bit over the top, but WTF, I was having fun!

Later

You rented her in Vegas?

They have so many good rentals there, and none of them cheap!!

Ya I did, and I don't regret a second of it.

I think that the "Gods" must have been smiling on me that day, because a small fire broke out at the Monte Carlo
and every Cop for a hundred miles around was in town directing traffic on the strip!



I have fricken worshiped at the Ferrari alter for my whole life, and getting the chance to drive this car for 24 hours
was the single greatest day of my life, excluding the days when I got married and the days that my kids were born on
( Just in case the Wife is reading this, Tee Hee Hee)

Continuing the de-rail, they were going pretty cheap when I was there in December. $300 seemed to be the going rate for a day, instead of the $300/5 hours I'd seen before.

Now's the time to go back and do it all again.

Did you go the Ferarri dealership at Wynn?
