The GT Time Capsule - Will Close In 20 Years

OK folks. Seeing the link to that Methuselan thread in GT's 10mm club, I have decided to start this thread.

I want everyone to post a little about yourself and then pop in periodically to post your thoughts. Talk about current trends, fashions, issues (DO NOT turn this into a political pissing match!). Let's create some future history for our site.

If the site is still around in 20 years, and I hope it is, and this thread has not met an apathetic end, I hope it doesn't, we will close it and archive it.

I think it would be pretty incredible to log into this thread in twenty years and see twenty years' worth of our thoughts and jokes and lives looking back at me. What do you guys think? Eric

I think I'll be 45


But seriously, I think it's a cool idea.

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.

"The past is a foreign country: they do things differently there" written by Leslie Poles Hartley. At the age of 49 I look back 20 years ago and really do view my neighborhood as a foreign country. We are so busy rushing through our lives that we don't take the time to enjoy what we have RIGHT HERE, RIGHT NOW.

That is what I would like to add to your time capsule. The knowledge that we should enjoy the present before it becomes our past.

Forgive the maudlin rambling.

I doubt we'll still be fighting the war in Iraq. At least I won't be.

It's been almost a year and a half since I first posted in this thread!

Son and I went hunting for the first time last fall, and plan on doing a lot more. We haven't gotten anything yet, but having a great time. Hopefully in 20 years hunting will still be legal.

NYC Drew's log; Tuesday January 12th, 2010.

It is fitting that on the 12th day of the year, we were shoveling 12" of snow.

Both of our mothers (me and the missus) are in their 7th decades. In 20 years they may not be cognizant enough of their surroundings to be aware of what the goings ons are.

Hopefully by then we have found a retardant for cancer, Alzheimers and diabetes.

A little more far fetched, but I hope that by then an enzyme, program, sequence or burst of knowledge makes it feasible to begin understanding women.

NYC Drew, out.

20 years is a long time.

In 20 years i'll be almost 50.

It seems like the overall sense of morale well being displayed by people of my age group is not what it should be.

I generally get along with people that are 50 better then people that are 20.

Hopefully, when I am 50, i'll have the same outlook and get along swell with people that are 20.

That would be a great future, to have the sense of "what's right is right" come full circle back to what I believe it should be, and what my elders are nostalgic for.

20 years is a long time.

I joined here almost 10 years ago, and it has absolutely flown by.

Even more far-fetched is the thought of us ever understanding men.

In 20 years I hope the USA and the Constitution is still standing tall, and the welfare and nanny states haven't destroyed our country from within. I'm not quite 50, so there's a chance I'll be alive to see it although I really doubt it because of health problems.

Today, I'm reading online about some guns I might start shopping for - 9mm Sub 2000 that takes Glock mags, 2nd gen Glock (haven't handled one yet and I'm curious), possibly another J-Frame. I also just poured a beer from the first batch a fellow GTer and I brewed back in December.

In 20 years, when I'm 50(!), I hope I'll own all the guns I have now plus a whole lot more. I'd also like to do some more intense training between now and then, and move out into the sticks so I can shoot on my own property (and have a bigger brewing setup!).

Current Glock's: 1st generation to 4th. Some recoil spring problems with the new generation 4 Glock's. Several spring "upgrades" available.

Trends:

IWB (miltsparks, cb, mtac, etc) are very popular. A lot of people use pancake style holsters from several custom leather makers.

Pocket guns are in. (J-frames, Ruger LCP, KelTec, etc)

"Tactical" and "Operator" is a common word in the firearms world.

Will add more later.

I find myself, this day, at this time, at a peaceful place in my life. I have mountains I have scaled behind me and mountains ahead to climb.

At this time, most think the sky is falling. I say we still have good days ahead.
