    I swear I've seen a similar thread to this one. I'm going to answer anyways though as someone will most likely link.

    Well, many people think I'm in my 20s around here. Honestly, I'm only 16. :p

    @okie74547
    Not really an old man yet. An old man is 50s or so in this sport IMO. I like seeing older guys in the sport though. It really helps with the younger guys. Most times, it gives them a positive role model to look up at as most of the time older guys are considerate about others and honest about taking hits (Isn't always the case, though sadly).

    I loaned a Vietnam vet a speed loader for his G36 mids. :p

    Imo, nobody's too old to play. Just as long as you keep your sense of honor and dignity while playing, play 'till you drop. :p

    I'm 26 and regularly play with guys in their 40s and 50s. I just had a kid, theirs are figuring out college or coming back from Afghanistan. The age range in this sport is pretty broad, which I think is awesome.

    It is awesome. I have a friend of mine's Dad who plays with us and he's 60+. Makes us all feel younger.

    This sport has a very wide range of ages that play. At my field you get everything from the tactical 10 year olds up to people in their 50s and possibly older. I would like to say the average is between 19-25

    where we play the range is from 10 (non-regular player) 12 (regular player) to me at 60. more 30+ players than under 30 players. our median age is around 40 or so. never figured it out

    sometimes we play kids v humans games. sometimes they win, sometimes we win. it's all fun

    The average age at my field consists of anywhere from about 10 to around 60 years old. Just out of curiosity, how old do you think I am? (Don't say if you already know :p)

    I'm almost starting my fantastic 20's lol. It's nice to see both younger and older players in this wonderful sport.
