    Obviously not written by an older shooter.

    I've got 5 out of the 10.

    But, as an "older shooter" (age 71) I prefer the M1 Garand, Mauser 98, Winchester 94, Italian made Colt SAA clones in 45 caliber, US Rifle Caliber 30 Model 1903A3, for things that need to be dead right now a NEF Handi Rifle in 45-70, Colt Government Model 1911A1, Ruger Super Blackhawk 44 magnum, and other sundry and various firearms.

    Just because I'm an Old Coot doesn't mean I'm a sissy snowflake.
    Heck, my favorite pocket carry is a Taurus 605 loaded with full house 158 grain 357 magnums. If the bad guy is close enough the muzzle blast will set him on fire.

    "I was tasked...". By whom? What were the criteria? Holes in paper or holes in BGs? Without context the content is pretty subjective.
    Whatever adjective or verb comes to mind, I am...NotSo.

    One of my goals in life is to shoot more people on purpose than I do by accident. So far, so good.

    An interesting article although I would questions some of the choices as well. I would add one gun to the list: RIA TCM22. For 1911 aficionados it can't be beat for a low recoil, easy-to-rack alternative.

    And I will never understand how people say 9mm kicks less than .45ACP. .45ACP is not a difficult round to handle. At all. It pushes where 9mm kicks. I will say the M92 is pretty gentle, because it's got so much weight, but it's also got a big grip that lots of people don't find comfortable. And an all-steel .45 will be gentler to shoot than a poly framed 9mm.
    Yep'ers.
    My Hi-Point C9 is heavy too and it is the tamest 9mm I have.

    There are "four boxes" that can be employed to resist the downfall of America, the ballot box, the soap box, the jury box and, lastly, the ammo box.

    Just my humble, but well thought out, opinion.

    If the list is for OLD people and we're talking .32's then how about an old .32?

    H&R .32 (aka .32 short) Top-break, self ejecting, hammerless, DA, "The shop keeper".

    I'm an old guy and out of a wish list of 100, these'd be at the very bottom of the list.

    I'm an old guy, yet nothing was said about accessories to help with my failing eyesight, how to reduce recoil, or how to load hi-cap mags with greater ease. Instead, they suggest I help reduce the overstock at Cheaper Than Dirt.

    Brought to you buy the same mind set of bunny huggers that worship at the feet of the demon-crat owned and run "SCOPES" as the be all know all omnipotent source of knowledge.
