    Hopefully when this thread is resurrected in 2031, we will have a better mastery of the English language.

    Cheers to a six month late 2011 federal budget resolution. Yay Congress.

    In twenty years I will be 77 my wife 82

    I expect to be living in the middle of nowhere doing as little as possible. Except for the occasional hike into even deeper forests enjoying the wilderness and solitude. The long hikes will give me deep satisfaction in knowing I have mastered my life, achieving complete balance in all things.




    Either that or in a nursing home glaring at everyone. :tongueout:

    Above everything I want my children and grandchildren to be healthy, happy, safe and free 20 years from now and for the rest of their lives.

    I’ve changed a lot since I started carrying, for the better as far as dealing with strangers is concerned. I wonder how much more I’ll change in the next decade or two. In 20 years I’ll be 69. I wonder if I’ll still be carrying and what I’ll be carrying.


    I had a “no guns in my home” attitude when my children were small and failed to provide important safety information as they grew up. Thankfully it never became an issue but if it had, they would have been completely unprepared. Things are different today and my grandchildren’s upbringing is different in that respect.

    If anyone had told me 20 years ago that I would have this much fun shooting and taking tactical classes :sigh: I could have been an expert by now. It has become an activity that the family enjoys doing together, a shame that I’ve wasted all this time.

    I cannot imagine wanting my life to be any different than it is today; well, perhaps a little more money and a little more time to enjoy it.

    We’re about to approach the hurricane season in FL (I’m in Miami), a season that frazzles me some. I hope that all my preparations are only needed for minor interruptions of power this season and all seasons to come. With that same thought, I hope all our self-defense preparations are never needed and that all our ammo is just used for fun at the range.

    I have three grandchildren from my daughter with the youngest being just 5 month old. Not because I’m their grandmother but I believe they are the most gorgeous children in the world (ok, maybe because I’m their grandmother geezzz :grin: ) None yet from my two sons.

    My current main carry is a G19. We’ll see if in 20 years I have the 1911 I’ve been drooling over.

    I pray that the US remains the country that my parents selected to bring us up in. All our lives they’ve been telling us that there is no country like it in the whole wide world and I fully agree with their statement.

    Here is wishing you and your families the best.... :wavey:

    I just joined GT a few weeks ago and love it. In 20 years I will likely be bowing in reluctant servitude to our robot overlords, and the statement "Dude, you're gettin' a Dell" will have a whole new meaning.

    All hail the robot overlords. :)

    I think I'll be 50, young pup. :)

    I'd like to personally thank (sarcastically) Eric for starting this thread. The thought of turning 30 this year was sobering enough but now he has made me think about turning 50. :faint:

    I wonder exactly how things will be in 20 years. We are on the verge of running out of Fossil Fuels around that point, so I hope everyone has plenty of EBR's :)

    In 20 years, will Chuck Norris be more or less respected here?

    Is the world really getting faster, more dangerous, less spiritual? Are we really losing our sense of right and wrong? Is technology making our lives easier, or more difficult?

    Or have we embraced those things, and brought them to fruition?

    GT was the first place I visited once I read of Bin Laden's death.

    Bin Laden is Dead. We were chasing him for almost half my life. I'm 21 now. Hopefully in 20 years I will have finally graduated college.

    The Glock Rifle will still be on its way this summer in 20 years. And maybe we will have the 380s in the us. A finally a single stack 9mm. Yep in 20 years everyone will be wanting the same things we want now
