    I’ll shoot in the cold as long as the wind isn’t blowing. If it gets too bad I can shoot in my shop, 15 yards if needed.

    In Texas we shoot year round. Winter is the nice time of year for us. Where I live it snows once every 10 years, some winters we don't even get a frost.

    We shoot all year around here in AZ also.  In the hot summer months, being under the shade of a canopy or covered porch, and a few hundred feet above the valley floor (where I live in NE Scottsdale)

    it's no problem to step out onto the porch and launch pellets for an hour or so during mid-summer weather.  Just stay mostly in the shade!  You just don't want to be out IN the DIRECT sun for extended periods of time in mid-summer.  For the other 8-9 months of the year – sweet shooting weather!

    Winter has finally reached the sunny south. Someone gave us one of those patio heaters so I'm putting it to use. Setting up inside my wife's garden gazebo.

    Close 3 sides and leave the front open for short range or open the side for longer distances.

     I've almost convinced her that my critter targets are yard decorations.

    As you well know John, I'm always a little bitchy; more accurately, more than a little! That said, weather can indeed have an effect on my bitchiness; true enough.

    BTW, I much prefer the term "a**-hole", to "bitchy".

    What winter, we play golf, fish, ride bikes, and shoot all year long on the Grand strand (Myrtle Beach).

    I don't care so much about the weather as I hate standard time!  Nighttime will drive me inside!  Sheesh, it gets all the way down into the fifties when Mr. Sun goes to bed!

    Ya, the cold isn’t a problem at all. I can hunt and shoot at any temp. But this getting dark at 5:30 sucks.

     5:30?! I wish. Here on the front range of Colorado at this time of year the sun sets before 5:00! I go to work in the dark and I come home in the dark. If I’m lucky I’ll get to “see” the sun on my days off work but I’m usually busy with something else to enjoy it and get some trigger time in. When I’m at work, I only see the sun when I look out the window and daydream about sniping the P-dogs in the vacant lot across the street. An indoor range is almost a necessity here to scratch the itchy trigger finger. Whenever I get the opportunity when no one is around I set up a target in my warehouse at work for a fifteen minute session before heading home.

    I’m in Mi. (lower peninsula) hasn’t been to bad this year… so far! I shoot from inside to outside also (walkout basement) but heat waves/mirage when looking through high powered scopes is terrible so don’t normally shoot or test for accuracy this way just for fun or to rid yard of critters…

    I'm happy the sun isn't' setting so early anymore. I have Daylight enough to shoot to 5pmish. So when I have the chance to get home by 4:30 the gun comes out and I get me some offhand practice at closer ranges till the sun sets or I can't feel my fingers anymore.

    4F this morning. I stay in my basement range until April! That is, until our clubs first FT match in March. Last year by the end of the match, my fingers were so numb, it was almost impossible to pick up a pellet out of the pouch and load it into the rifle.
