Punking out. Again.

Caleb says that pins are go for this weekend at MCF&G. Weather.com says it's a balmy 17F, with a steady 11mph breeze out of Mordor to make it feel even colder. It might, however, climb to a sweltering 19F by noon. I can't imagine they'll actually be shooting pins; in these temps they hardly last two shots and you can burn up a summer's worth of pins in a morning. Steel is fun, but it sure is cold...

I think I'll be doing indoors blasting today, thanks.

Given the experiences of last weekend, I'll be toting a pared-down kit. Just the range bag, with everything I need in it and no extra ammo cans or whatnot. 1911s in .45, 9mm, and .22 and hopefully I can mooch some .45 off Shootin' Buddy; that way I don't have to bring the ammo can and I'll take up less space on the back counter behind the stall. It gets crowded in that little range when there's two or three people per lane packed in there...

Good idea, this indoor shooting. A woman your age needs to be careful...

Well, I don't know, she did move north - some might say to the Great White North, but those people haven't ever been to Calgary (or Minneapolis).

Welcome to the Midwest, Tam. The weather sucks in the winter. It sucks in the summer too. Love that corn, though.

Over here in the People's Republic of Illinois, it is 7degrees, heading for a balmy 9F.

Of course if I was home, it would be 60 degrees, heading for 67. And sunny.

I also punked out - I cannot handle this much cold, plus I had to go take delivery of my new blaster.

I shot an IDPA match this morning. 31 degrees, 15 mph wind.

Caleb says I'm an idiot, and I think I have to agree.
