I have been shooting for 33 years. I am 39 and I have a BSBA in Finance/Economics.

What is the precentage of people with Bachelors in the nation?

25%? But I am only guessing.
Link Posted: 10/16/2004 6:20:59 PM EST
Bachelor of Science. I've been shooting for 15 years.

DK Prof:

I was not able to add more than five categories in the poll. Instead, I have asked about Ph.D.'s in my post.

All,

Have been shooting since I was of legal age. I would have started sooner but noone would sell me any guns when I was 15. Plus my parents hate guns, especially mom.

Now I shoot, collect, and reload...But the reloading is waning because it is just not practical anymore. Ammunition consumers are very price sensitive and the entrance of low priced competitors to the shooting market space (Wolf) has made it inpractical to reload all but the biggies (30.06 and so on).

I'm about a year from a masters, pretty tough though as I am doing a traditional research masters while maintaining a full time job.

Wife will have her DEd in about 6 months.

I've been shooting since before I can remember, about 28-29 years. Recently got back in to it more heavily, started expanding my collection.

Only lack a foreign language of having my associates (and have no intentions of going back to take it). I've been hunting and shooting for about 30 years, since I was about 4 or 5 years old.

I was a shooter in my childhood until my dad died and my mom sold off all the guns. I bought my first gun in 1999 and have been shooting ever since.

Remember the Alamo, and God Bless Texas...

High School Grad and Trade School. Tried some community college part time. But never stuck with it.

I'd rather, go shooting or do some reloading, than go to school. Although I did like the PIE at college.


Nothing like, some young, sweet American College Pie!

Oh yea! As for shooting. I've been shooting Pie ever since I was fifteen years old.
