Gimli did indeed stay home because he was too young. [In reply to] Can't Post

That's how he himself explains in "The Quest of Erebor". That Dáin fought at such a young age does not disprove his statement; As you say, Dáin's feat was noted as incredibly impressive for the fact that he was as young as he was. Dáin was an exception, Gimli was the norm.
