When is it too cold to shoot?
Of the twelve shooters that regularly compete in our monthly match, it appears that for eight of them the too cold to shoot threshold is when you can exhale and the water vapor in your mouth condenses into tiny droplets and you can see your breath in the air like a fog. Or it’s when their fingers get cold.
And that’s probably the reason why only four guys showed-up for the February match. It was cold, it was in the 30s, and it was breezy. In short, it was miserable.
The four shooters that did brave the weather were: (1) Brian, who grit his teeth and wondered why he ever volunteered to be the Match Director. (2) Pix, who didn’t mind the weather because he’s ‘old school’ tough. (3) Bill, because he brought along earmuffs and mittens and (4) Howie because he just had to get out of the house.
Here are the cold results:
|Name||Relay 1||Relay 2||Relay 3||Total|
At the end of the rifle match conditions were so miserable everyone was happy to cancel the Charger match.
Although it’s not very likely, hopefully the first Sunday in March, (our next match day), will be warn and calm and all 12 shooters will show-up.
