    Let the Match Director know what you are up against. You can walk and gun with no problem. If there is an unusual position that you can't get in to, usually you can agree to do something else and take a penalty. Talk to the MD. If it's a good place to shoot, they will accommodate you.

    I'm 73 and still having fun shooting. My body isn't in too bad a shape for my age. I tell people it's because, as a youth, I didn't play football, race motorcycles or jump out of airplanes.

    I am also 73.
    It is more like "shamble and gun" but I am still having fun at IDPA, USPSA, and SC.

    Well, the guy who runs the meets said I probably would have problems doing the shoot with my bad back, so my local range and MD may not be too accommodating! I hope to go check out a match this Sunday so maybe they'll let me try just running a stage to see how my back reacts. If I'm not shooting, and everybody is done, shouldn't take too long to just do a quick run-through. I WILL FIND SOMETHING that this old beat up body can still do. As the old saying goes, "What I used to do all day, now takes me all day to do!"

    When I was 50 my doctor told me I have the back of an 82 year old. Now that I'm 62 I guess I have the back of a 102 year old! OY! (LOL)
