    I shoot in the crap, and cold, not because I don`t mind it, I hate it , but living in western ny. I don`t have much choice.

    I have to say with each year it gets harder, and harder, to convince myself it`s still fun.

    I guess I am because I didn't go shooting today because it was -18 this morning up here in Alaska. LOL

    I can't see the point in trying to shoot wearing bulky clothes that make it impossible for my gun to fit correctly, or trying to shoot in the dark under inadequate lighting in a cold wind that makes my eyes water so badly I can't see anything smaller than the Goodyear blimp.

    Am I a fair weather shooter...you bet your bippy!!

    It is supposed to be a fun game (sport). Does shooting in rotten weather make shooting fun? Not for me.

    I figure bad weather/shooting conditions bothers everyone else more than it bothers me. Fair weather shooter?-nah.

    I'm a fair weather shooter, that's why I shot eight rounds on Saturday in a Tee-shirt and will shoot a case of targets today wearing the same thing.
    I shot in very low temps one night, and about froze to death......had to wear a coat between rounds. Not fun, I'll tell you....

    Looks a little windy at the Dixie today - only two 100's in the singles. Looks like it will get even worse towards the weekend:)

    Yesterday, it was cold enough for a heavy coat in the AM..by noon, you could shoot in a sweat shirt, comfortably..That's N.W. Pennsylvania..Note, today we have about three inches of fresh snow. Can't wait to see what tomorrow brings!

    Nah! I'm too close to the end to let a little weather stop me.

    You need to define "Fair Weather" Up here for me it's anything above zero with less than 10 mph winds. We are shooting a winter league now and the turnout is great. So far the temps are in the high 20's to low 30's, snow flurries, light winds, gray skies. So far scores are pretty decent. If you live north of the Mason/Dixon a little cold and snow don't mean much. I'd rather shoot in this type of weather than what we had at the Grand this year.
