    Default This Weather Is Killing Me!! Or Someone Doesn't Like Me

    Rant mode: ON

    I have been trying to go out shooting virtually every time I have off from work, but when the days come up...the weather goes into the toilet. Right now it is semi-sunny, 30*F, but the wind is 33 gusting to 47mph. The past couple of days were raining/misting with winds over 30mph. All this past winter when I came up for a couple days off...crappy weather.

    I have a Remi .300 Ultra I've NEVER fired due to this situation. AAARRRGGGHHH!!!

    I am coming to believe someone doesn't want me to go out and make holes in the snow.

    Rant mode: OFF

    Anyone else suffering like this?

    Ya, I'm in the same boat. Got a new (to me) Sako .338 WM and haven't got to try it yet. When I get home from work it's either 35* and raining, or -35* and well you know, cold.

    The weather has been crampin my style too.

    When I go to the range to take advantage of good weather, everybody else is there too, with the same idea.

    I'm in the same boat a Smitty every time I get a chance to go to the range I just do a drive by, looking that is. Too many darn people to see me shoot my S&W 500 for the first time and bounce it off my forehead. That would be to embarrassing.

    Yeah, plenty of wind and snow this winter that's for sure. Haven't done much hunting lately myself, going crazy too.
