I had in mind a day at the range today. However, as usual, the wind is a bit breezy. In fact it's down right disGusting.......15 mph with Gusts to 25 mph. DisGUSTING. ..:(

I suppose it could be worse. Last week we had GUST to 55 mph....:ahhhhh:

The dingers are harder to hit when the wind blows them into the horizontal position. This is problematic to me. The wind is not our friend! Steve

JB,

Sorry about the wind. I thought things were suppose to settle down for you folks and us today. I was planning on shooting this afternoon. I will probably shoot wind or no wind. I will just change my objective from accuracy to stress relief. :biggrin:

Not a good range day here in NW Florida either. East winds currently 14 gusting to 20 with severe thunderstorms approaching the area within the hour!

Hey Guys… Look on the bright side. The wind is always a good excuse.
"I didn't shoot a good group because the wind was so gusty"…or
"I didn't shoot a good group because I'm so used to the wind blowing and now it's not blowing".
The wind is ALWAYS a good excuse!!!

Yes, same here, but 26 deg and snow to go with it. Griff (my pointing Griffon) and I were pheasant hunting. We (and my Browning A5) slayed them!

Jim, you should have been at my place yesterday..............we had 38mph winds. Don't have to worry about bullets being thrown off-target because it was too windy to even allow loading!
Don't have any idea what the gusts were!

I just saw the radar for the SE. You folks in northern FL need to keep a wary eye. That one has some nasty spots. Be safe.

My dream for a long time was to move to a state that doesn't have wind or Democrats. Unfortunately, no such place exists.
You betcha, you got a lot a democrats in Wisconsin...

I was born and raised there and then came to Colorado in 81. Now Colorado has all the democrats! But at least you have Walker and you should be proud!

Wow, I guess that took this thread down a hole.

I'd rather deal with the wind than the democrats. The wind can vary, democrats just get worse.

Nicer days are around the corner, Jim. Hang in there, Brother.

I tried to sight in my Henry rifle yesterday and had to give up, wind was gusting to 35 mph blowing over my target frame even though I put four bricks on the legs and a piece of tree limb. The wind and cold has been ridiculous here in Georgia.......worst I've seen in 30 years. :dontknow:

JB,
I know we are the Hyphenators (hey, I like that almost as much as 'enabler'). That would look way cool on a cap!
But with wind like that, isn't it time to bring out the .50 caliber piece? :hmmmm:
