    About 20 years ago I shot in -8 for a 50 target league shoot and wound up getting a small area of frostbite on the back of my neck. Was shooting new Premiers and they sounded like bad loads with a lot of powder residue left in the barrel.

    Glad to see some other people who are just as insane as I am. We have been shooting a night 5 Stand league for 3 years now. This year the club enclosed the shooting area and heated it. Last few years we were out in the elements. Two nights in particular here in Wisconsin I remember still...having moved here from Texas...don't ask...one night minus 13 actual and snowing. Another night minus 11, wind from the north, snowing..again..I was standing next to a 150,000 BTU fan driven kerosene heater and put my hand about 3 inches from the glowing orange center and could not feel any heat. Is that bad? I figured I probably should not do that as my other Physician partners in my Anesthesia practice would be less than understanding of that injury and inability to work for a few days. Sent pics of it to some old squad buddies in Texas...they return mailed me some Psychiatric drugs with instructions on how to take them.

    You Pussies......it was below zero last night, like only minus one or two. Plus 6 would have been nice. LOL.

    Shot below zero yesterday up here in British Columbia. Going to go tonight under the lights and am expecting some frozen balls when I get home. What color targets you guys throwing in the snow and at night? Our all orange were hard to pick up against the bank of clay and snow mixed. I am sure they won't be throwing whites tonight.

    excuse me... leaving a clubhouse warmed to 60+ degrees takes big balls, but once outside... "shrinkage factor" - those boys hang high and in tight!

    Its all in the "science"! (lol)

    Shot at Maywood last night, I think it was 1 above. Not too many shooters though.

    If you're shooting at just 6 degrees, then either they are throwing very flat targets or you're shooting them too quickly right out of the house. ;-)
