....and you need to be ready to go on a minutes notice. 
Back then they had one room homes at ground level. You picked up your musket, your powder horn, your pack, put the hat on, and out the door you went. 
 

I think today you get more time. You need to spin the combination on the safe, pull out your weapon of choice, take the trigger lock off, unlock the ammo can, grab som ammo to fill your pack. Then you need to put on the Nike athletic suit, put some gel in your hair......

Walk out into the hall and push the elevator button.....etc etc.

I was thinking the same thing.  I hope to still be shooting after 60

 

If stroke victim Joe can have the nuclear football at 78, how dangerous is an Ar -15 in my hands?

I doubt any of you would pass the fitness test.  You all sit on your ass and post all day.  Probably get winded walking to the can.
