    Retirement is boring. All I get to do is reload and go to the gun club and shoot.
    If not doing that, look at guns for sale.

    I'm semi-retired right now and work just enough to get by and that allows me to come and go as I please.
    My stress level is way down and my happy meter is going up.

    Haven't don't crap for about 3.5 years now.

    33 now, not retired though. Not lazy either. Stay at home dad and home school teacher. As close to retardment as I can be until The time comes.

    I feel your pain. Some days schooling requires range trips too!

    Lol.

    What is this reloading thing y'all speak of? All I do is hunt, fish, shoot, waste time on old part forums and piddling in the shop..... Is there more to retirement than that?:p

    I kinda retired a few years ago and started my own business. My business was good for about 5 years and then it slowed up. I now work part time at a local school... The best part is my retirement covers about 70% of my bills and the part time job gives me enough extra so I can hunt and fish. It is sorta nice to have a lot of the summer off as well as Christmas break. I am very blessed, my wife and kids still like me soooo life is good. :)

    I'm a FOG. 42 years of railroading, the last 20 on call 24/7/365 as a supervisor. Retired for a year and a half now. Bring home more now than when I worked.
    Reload, shoot, play with guns, fish, play with cars, drink beer and bourbon.
    Rinse......repeat.

    All of you retirees....... SUCK! ('cept Spectra cuz he's banged up) :D

    I don't have much hope SSI will be there when I'm "pasture age", and I won't be surprised if .gov seizes all private pension, IRA/401k funds in the not so distant future.

    Siiiiigh, I'll just retire vicariously through you guys! :cool:

    Can you imagine the horror of being a government official if that were to happen? I would fear for my life every time I stepped out of my house, and rightly so.

    Why? They'll most likely have everyone disarmed by declaring everyone as a "prohibited person" via some trumped up farce of a crime, like saying you're a "domestic terrorist" because you criticized the goverment and are a public danger, or you yelled at your kid and that's "domestic violence".

    I do have to agree it is not looking good for us that are still working. After working for the same type of job for almost 30 yrs now I sometimes wonder how much longer I will last....

    Yeah, me too. My 20-30 something brain has yet to catch up to my almost 50-something body that says otherwise. LMAO!
