61. Airgunnin since I was 10? Airgunners tend to skew older but PCP guns have drawn in some younger folks. Back before the old Yellow Forum went belly up there was a poll with hundreds of responses. The vast majority were over 50.

61.  Hunted waterfowl and upland game birds in grade school and high school.  Sort of fell out of shooting sports in college.  Got my first air gun, a Sheridan model H about 30 years ago.  I currently have 38 different air guns in the collection, and have sold or traded over 100 throughout the years.

39? I can't even remember the 30's. Now I know why you have so much energy to do the projects  you take on. 65 here. Always had some sort pellet gun in the garage that was seldom shot.. A client owned a gun store and sold me a side cock Diana 52. At the time the price floored me. Who would pay over $300 for a pellet gun??? 35 years ago, still have it, still hate it. 😕 

My son gave me a PCP for Christmas 5 years ago. Talk about creating  an addiction! We have something to do together and my wife likes that I keep working to feed the need. 😉 😀

I'm 4,712 but then, maybe you mean only beings that were born on Planet Earth... 😀 

I'm 67, and still working.  My first training was on a Ruger semi automatic .22 pistol via my dad on the "back acre" at age 7.  By my teens, I was really into guns and hunting.  Fell in love with a Berkeley girl after the Vietnam war, and gave it all up for her, until a few years ago when I started shooting airguns after a hiatus of <gasp> 41 years.  I doubt I'll ever get into powder burners again because with airguns, I get all the fun with minimal expenses!

70 and getting younger every day! (At least that's what I keep telling myself.) Got into airguns maybe twenty years ago. Another black hole, like rimfires and muzzle loaders. I can't shoot them because I can't make my mind up which one to shoot. "Guns I forgot I had" department.

You'll be happy to know that they hold their value and someone might gladly give you back most of what you paid, plus cover shipping and PP fees 😉 Edited because I got on here to sell and airgun, not buy one... wow... this place...

 What timing!  I'm on vacation, got sick and have been binging on TLC TV today. After several episodes of "Hoarders" "My 600 lb life" l'm siiting here making resolutions.

Anyone need some guns let me know what you're looking for. 😎

I guess I'll be the pup, 46, been hunting and fishing since the single digits.  Grandpa got me started in it.  My early teens, most of our food was game, we used a 3 hole outhouse until the middle 80's.  Best Christmas present ever was a Red Ryder, still have it, still shoots strong.  Neck deep in PB's and some real nice ones at that.  But the blued and wood springers I do love.

Dang, you guys ARE old! Which I can say cuz I’m with you...65.

Santa brought that Crosman M1 when I was 10 I think, and I was pinching the bejeezus out of my fingers with my grandmother’s Daisy 25 long before that. It was the Benjy 347 under the tree in ‘68 that really sealed the deal though.

I'm with Nervoustrigger - 43 and hoping for at least another 43 years of shooting. I got started around age 8 or 9 turned loose with a Crosman 760 on my Grandfather's 20 acres...and about 500 acres of farmland adjacent. No sparrow was safe.

My dad is responsible for this addiction - not only did he provide the Crosman, but he also bought himself a .22 Beeman R1 in 1981 - the first year they were offered. Once I was old enough to lug that beast around (and page through those old Beeman Catalogs!), I was hooked for life (hence, my username).  He still has that gun, and it still looks and shoots great, although it's in desperate need of a tune!

I'm 80, and started shooting when I was 7. Can't do so much these days as there are only two places I can shoot within ten miles of home and I don't drive.

Late bloomer to the game and closer to 80 than 70. I went to an auction in 2014 and bought a very nice BSA Meteor MK3 for $45....and the passion began! Love the hunt for them. I try to keep the numbers down to under 12 to keep everybody happy.

Ia am 67 and have been shooting since I was 5.  My first experience with airguns was with My dad's Crosman 112.  Still have that one and had it resealed about 29 years ago.  I found out about this culture and have been hooked ever since.
