I didn't shoot any Marlins, though. I had a serious case of cabin fever and figured that the gravel pits were clear of snow. I ran a box through my USFA 38 and my Auto Ordnance 1911A1. Boy, I sure get rusty during the winter months! The last time I shot was last October. After that, my hands cannot handle the cold. I went out grouse hunting the day after Thanksgiving, though. It was -1 when I started my usual 7 hours of walking. Luckily, I had Grandad's old Jon-E handwarmer! I have some 32-20s standing by for my 27-S.
