Too cold for .177
Hello. I have been out practicing (posh plinking) this morning and it is 2 deg. After an hour my two exposed fingers (thumb and index) from my gloves (the rest of the gloves have full length finger covers) were so cold that I could not physically pick a pellet from my pellet pouch. Because of this, I took my hardly ever used other gun, my .22 BSA Lightning from the boot (I always take it shooting as a spare), and the pellets being bigger meant my frozen fingers could pick them out ok and so I got another full hour plinking fun. AT LAST I HAVE FOUND A GOOD REASON TO ALSO HAVE A .22: VERY COLD WEATHER SHOOTING. Was going to sell it but will now keep it for that very reason. Anyone else do the same?
am a patient and a "cautious" man, but can not and will not tolerate the rude.
