    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. :(

    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. :cool:

    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...
