    Winter shooting?

    Post by Revwarnut on Mon Oct 17, 2011 10:01 pm

    How many of you continue to shoot through winter?

    Indoors or outdoors?

    I have a rough range setup indoors that I shoot my pellet pistols in pretty much year round when I happen to be down there and get the urge, or when I feel like launching a few. It is nice not to have to haul out targets, set them up and then pickup afterwards.

    I have had no gophers to shoot this year in the back yard. Guess I did too good of a job on them last year!!!

    Surprised no one has replied to this.

    Personally, I missed it. My appologies.

    Let's "bump" this one and try again . . .

    Yes, I shoot outdoors all year round. It was so hot all summer here, that I didn't get out as much as I wanted. Now the cooler weather of Fall and even the Cold of winter will be enjoyed by me. Between the 20's and the 80's is good for me.

    I only shoot PCP so cold weather does not slow me down,



    It is so wet here in the PNW so I have rain and fog to deal with and occassional snow, the big factor is making air and keeping the wet out of the Shoebox.

    I do more out the bedroom window shooting when it is raining, or shooting from my garage at 36 yards rather than 50 to 100 yards on my lower range.

    Is there a notification setting so I get all new messages posted to the airgun forum?

    Winter shooting? Of course. Its the best time of year for blood trails. cherry Actually I work from home and take shooting breaks most days from a covered second deck with bench rest setup. Sometimes I shoot out the slider door if it is cold enough using a bipod. Also the trees lose their leaves and the range become unlimited.

    I'm acually out in a driveway next to my Uncles house down here in Lakeland Florida with a laptop in my lap. He doesn't have a compuer let alone a network and I've got permission to leach off of the neighbor . . .

    So it's a little rough to get this message to you. No spell check but this will do . . .

    Yea, what you can do is use the feature that, after you've signed on, you can click a the top of the page there and check "posts since your last visit".

    I'll have to see about some feature that sends you an email about each and every post. I get them and Tom gets them . . plus my Mods.

    But this I will check for you.

    Until then, nice pics!

    I shoot in my basement year round, mostly bench rest at 30 feet if I open the door to the unused spare bedroom I can get 40+ feet.

    i shoot every chance i get, ( that is when i'm done with the honey do list ). i drive over the road, so, i'm gone alot, when i'm home i usually sneak out as soon as the sun comes up to get some trigger time in. up here in wisconsin that usually means single digit temps in the winter. oh well, sacrifices must be made.
