Now, Now. My Grandad is 85 and by the Grace of God , one tough guy. He handles 10 gauge shotgun recoil better than l do and he's going to Africa next year with me ! Age is just a number. Look at Tony Sanchez ArinoIt is part of a three-barrel set for my Blaser S2 double rifle (along with .375 and ‘06). Have shot a lot of game with the other two. At my age, keep an eye out for the estate sale.
