    I just hit 69 today, I don't feel old. I just think I might have been used to much when I was new.

    You don't even wear glasses, so just hush the hell up.
    My biggest problem is making coffee in the morning.
    It's just way too complicated without having my coffee first.

    I was reading one of your stupid rants, and thinking what a freaking idiot you are, until I realized it was one of my own rants from last week.

    If I had known what getting old was like I would have taken better care of myself, too late to look back now. LOL

    I've often wished I could set up an enclosed trailer with everything I could ever want/need for range trips, including a shooting bench and reloading setup. But, not likely to ever happen.

    I feel old when I look in the mirror to shave. I look at that face, the grey/ white hair and ask myself 'When the heck did that happen?'

    As for the range, I keep my range bag in the car, and try to only carry essentials. Only once in a while will I clean it out.

    Essentials
    Small Med Kit, inc. blood clotting pads x2.
    Spotting scope and mini tripod
    Folder with paper and shoot n see targets.
    Staple gun + spr staples
    Small monocular with reticle for range/ target estimation. Mils, prefer moa but couldn't find one.
    Small gun cleaning kit.
    Small tool kit in pouch, screw drivers, punch, small multitool etc.
    Laser rangefinder.
    Eye and ear protection.
    Pen and small notepad.
    Small torch (single AA) + spr batteries.
    Small roll of duck tape and maybe a meter or two of 550 cord. Not sure why, just seems a good idea.

    If I cant pick it up and carry it easy for at least three hundred yds with a rifle on the shoulder, its got too heavy.

    Always open to helpful suggestions by the way?

    That is the reason I started doing it when I finished drinking coffee in the morning.
