    In British slang an anorak is a person who has a very strong interest in niche subjects.

    I read on this section a lot more than I post - the details from the old boys is a wealth of knowledge. Long may it continue 👍🏻

    All of the above.

    I can show my age with the following. Going shooting on a Sunday morning carrying a double barrel 12 bore down the street with no bag. Shotgun licence 10 shillings obtainable from Post Office. No power restrictions on air rifles or pistols. Petrol 4 shillings a gallon. Riding BSA Shooting Star with no helmet legally. First car Morris Cowley 16. Learning to fly a Cessna 150 at 8.50 per lesson. Holiday in Spain hotel cost 1.50 per day. Free return flights to Europe on Court Line BAC 111's because planes were empty. Great days.

    My mother-in-law's standard of "old" has always been, "anyone 10 years older than me." She turned 96 this year.

    So...I still think of myself as a youngster just enjoying his toys, and encourage everyone else here to do the same!

    I do apologise. Not knowing the history of firearms control in Norway, your post was misunderstood by me and a couple of other members.
