    I only lost one fight in my whole life. I slipped running around a corner and he caught me.

    Wouldn't help me. A 72 year old man can't run. That's why I carry a 1911 45. I cheat.

    Wisdom at it's finest. I'm not quite 72 yet, but I second what SatCong said.

    At 67 there is no running in me left. In that scenario I might have to Stand My Ground (But it was hysterical and very truthful)

    Yeah I watched that vid twice. First time I was slow to react but I still laughed. Second time I laughed quicker. Mostly I laughed at the Ranger Navy Seal intro as he ran like a rabbit really making tracks he was.

    One day at the Park I stopped to watch a faller take down a Doug fir danger tree. Really tall I'd say 250-300' EZ. 150+ feet before the branches started. I was a good distance away 100yd easy and faller was halfway up and made his first cut. It was good tree went down and faller was OK. I still ran 25-30yd out of instinct.

    Mister Obnoxious.


    I was around 55 that day. Running just that 75-80' was it for me. That was 3yr prior to the onset of my arthritis. My running days were over before that I just dint know it yet.

    At 80+ I rely on the OODA Loop by military strategist John Boyd. The four steps of the OODA Loop are Observe, Orient, Decide, Act. The older I get the more I rely on my awareness of my surroundings.

    I can still run, but much slower than I used to. I'd probably still try it, while making quick glances over my shoulder to make sure said perp wasn't gaining/closing in on me. Age, and ankle surgery in 2012, both contribute to my running speed being pretty pathetic.

    I rode a horse for a living working cattle for 20 years so you can imagine the state of my body. I am like SatCong, I can't run, but I do carry everywhere I can go.

    If I have to pass through a metal detector, I usually just stay at home.
