So it was a cold and damp Saurday. About an inch of snow on the ground. Right at the freezing point.
A great day to go to the range, and spend some time hitting steels, killing the dueling tree and knocking over bowling pins.
Mostly gloveless too. I mean, it isn’t gonna always be warm, and sunny, and dry when or if you need that pistol. and that coat and sweatshirt is gonna get in the way of your draw…..
Plus I got to make sure the ammo and my firearms were happy in lower temps (nine are but not all guns you can buy are are, all the time).
Besides, it was time to change my carry ammo.
My hands got cold, I was cold, and my feet were frozen from standing in the snow. I figure my performance fell off by about 25% or more.
I can, however, still get the job done. Sadly, I only recovered about a third of my .45 brass and even less of the 9mm.
