Just in from the range! Bring on Spring!

I just got in from shooting my P95 at my home range and I feel great! I shot pretty well also! Now that the weather is starting to warm up it will be nice to shoot outdoors again.

Congrats on a good day at the range with a fantastic pistol! Me, I'm in no hurry for Spring, though. Spring leads to Summer, and I'm one who finds it easier to get warm in Winter...as opposed to being able to cool off in Summer. But that's just me......

P.S.: ....But if what I hear about Winter in your state is correct, I can see how you'd be ready for some warmth!

I shot my SR9 and 10/22 outdoors in the snow today. I wish I'd have gone yesterday when it was in the 50's...

Just returned home from teaching my daughter, Sr 40c at the range 200 rounds, little muddy but it was a great time. We have about 4 inches of snow left to melt..

Yes, on the walk back I had snow up to my knees in a few spots. At least the temp was in the 30's.

I love shooting while its snowing. My girlfriend and I were the only ones at our range one morning when it started to snow. It was so peaceful and quite with the exception to our firearms discharging.

Having grown up in Dixie, I can't imagine it! Around here, we like our snow to stay a day or so, and then melt, which it almost always does. Darn good thing, too, because Southern folks, as a group, don't drive in snow too well....

Sounds like a great morning.
We are a full month into fall here.
Except for yesterday, the nights are cooling down.

Glad to hear someone got to the range today. We've had 12" inches of snow today; so far, and it's still falling. At times almost white-out conditions, so no ones going anywhere. Shoot a few for me if you can.

Got 5 inches here yesterday, unusual this late, but we have gotten snow a few Aprils in the past. Forties next few days, then up to 62 Sunday. I may make my first range trip in a couple of weeks. I should have my LCR-357 back from Ruger before that.

I shot when I got home from work today. Upper 30's and lotsa sunshine! No 60's yet. Enjoy your excellent weather!
