There were some nice warm days in December and January – until now. It has turned cold. The indoor range where I practice is closed while the folks that work there enjoy the ATA Meeting. I’m practicing outside. It is awful.
Unlike my nice warm shed I had in North Carolina, here in Georgia when I can’t get to practice indoors there’s winter in the raw.
Sure, it isn’t like winter in say Pittsburgh, Cleveland or Baltimore. I’ve lived in all those places and winter was an entirely other animal compared to a Georgia winter. Nevertheless, cold is cold.
Because the cold here in Georgia isn’t in the same league as a north Ohio winter, yesterday I tried to practice wearing as little clothing as possible to stay warm and not make the shots more difficult. That was a total failure. Three layers weren’t enough.
What started off as a good day quickly rolled downhill into shoot, thaw by the little outdoor heater, then shoot again.
