That makes it much more pleasant for the shooter. My guns don't seem to be any less tolerant to rain as they are to the byproducts of firing them.

Even though I only have to step outside to shoot (actually I don't even have to do that with small calibers), I'm too old to get wet changing targets let alone get my guns all wet and have to clean them.

I blasted off a 10mm round a few weeks ago from inside the open doorway.  The blast was so intense the cable TV box about 10 feet away (behind the TV) freaked out and rebooted (a 20 minute process).

 ;D  :laugh:  That's what you get for firing from inside the doorway! :laugh: :laugh: But I do have to admit that your post got me chuckling at the visual of a cable box doing an R2D2 and rebooting!  :laugh: ;D

It's .308 Kimber Montana that I lightened a bit more, chopped the barrel, and set up with iron sights + a Leupy ultralight 3-9x33 + an Aimpoint H2 with custom Brocock quick release base for Talley mounts.

It is 5 lbs with the peeps.

Wow that is very nice. I love modern bolt actions with iron sights.

Weather should be nice this week, so if anyone wants to get some range time, come on down. Just bring some bug dope as the black flies may be pesky.
Bring your own targets, too, if you need something special. Tin cans (water-filled) make for decent reactive targets, but you will have to bring them, since I don't eat that much soup or canned goods to keep the range supplied. Give me a day's notice. Thanks.
Range use will likely be extremely limited in another couple of weeks, so make hay.....

Incidentally, for you 9mm shooters, try my "lighter-than-commonly-available" 9x19mm reloads with 90g and 95g projectiles. They are a hoot out my test pistol. I suspect you will like them in your Shield, Glock or whatever.

   The right two loads are 124g and 130g respectively.
 
Don't worry, "imahangtia" will not be around to intimidate you.

Range closed today due to global warming.
It will simply be "too hot" to shoot. I'll let you know when I have outdoor climate control for your absolute total comfort.

Gotcha!
Of course, you may come down today...just a few black flies...otherwise fire away!

This weekend, 20/21 May, is okay for the firing range.
Come shoot some of those .357 Magnums, .30-30's and 64g GDSP's in .223 Remington!
Many other calibers on hand. You can even reload after emptying all of your brass!
