Default ##*@**% Ks. WIND!

Well the pick up is loaded with optics, shooting bench, targets,& on and on. Nice stiff wind blowing though, got 90% of yard work done Saturday so I could shoot today and help a buddy sight in a new scope. Well no shooting here now untill late this evening when the wind might go down. Crap, I guess I'll go wash the pick up and the wife's car - thats a load of enjoyment!

That's too bad. Hopefully you'll get some good trigger time later.

Don't sugar coat it, tell us how you really feel

You should go anyways! What, you think when the Space Zombies show up it's always going to be bright and sunny with no wind??

Go. Learn to shoot with a heavy side wind or even in a good rain downpour if you have covered shooting.

We do that here as a practice. The PNW gets a ton of rain, adn every year we do a rain shoot, just to see the effects on your match grade target rifle with custom ammo versus the effects of mothernature. Long story short, she still wins.

You should go if it's not gail force conditions. It good for you to see how the bullets react to obstacles in their flight path...
