I want to go shooting

at the outdoor range.  But it's chilly, and wet, and I really don't want to be out in that for a few hours(which would include wet feet from walking to & from the target stands).   So I think I'll spend some time today, once I can get myself to actually do something, loading some of the ammo I'm short of.

Weekend at the range was busy.  REAL busy most of the time.  I wonder if the clowns in DC pushing their latest 'disarm the peasants' bill have any idea how much business jumps every time they start spouting their crap?

"There's no such thing as bad weather, unless you only have bad gear unsuited to the weather."

That was only one of the things that 20+ years of living, working and playing in Alaska taught me. Sounds like you need some good boots! But there's never anything wrong with loading more ammo.

True, I don't have any cold/wet-weather boots. Something I need to correct.

In my case there's also 'arthritic hands get stiff in cold weather', which plays hell with good shooting. At least it takes some of the fun out of it.

The very LAST TIME I froze my butt off in a MN deer stand was due to me listening to my dumb brother saying, "I have all the cold weather gear you could need!" I bought some *serious* Herman Munster cold weather boots.
They were Cabelas removable liner boots with I think 1200 grams of insulation. (The temps dropped 100 deg going from AZ to MN that year)

They are heavy but I think you could be on the dark side of the moon for 2 days and still have toasty warm piggies. They're actually too hot for just "cold", perfect for OH MY GOD! cold.
