Reply To: Cold weather and pressure loss?
Prior to hunting, I always take the gun I intend to use out of the safe, place it in its travel hard case, and leave it outside for awhile prior to heading to my hunting destination. I have trucks, so I put the cased guns in the bed for travel and to keep them at outside temps. When I return home, I open the cases and leave the guns to return to room temps in the house. Then, wipe em down and back in the safe.
I live in Ohio, so our winters are similar. This process of climatizing my guns, binoculars, and other gear has worked very well for me.
