Man I hope you got a concreate shooting bench! Better bring extra sandbags and soak em in something like water to increase their weight!

I don't shoot in high winds cause here in Kansas we gots this legend about gettin swept up in a tornado and landing in the little bullet people land! :eek:

Blown Away

Also went to the range today. Up to 40 mph gusts from NW in Eastern Iowa. (But Sunny for awhile!!) Was able to hit the 9 ring once at 50 yds, but only on the target I stapled up two to the left from the one I was aiming at! Sometimes this shootin' around corners is fun!

Still trying to put everything together...

Rifle. Scope, Rest, Bags, Targets, Ammo. :confused:
Things are starting to pull together towards the 10Ring:)
Now we get WIND??? :eek:
25 yds OK, but then a weather front starts blowing through and the wind starts to pick up in gusts, not a Full Force Gale like what Antlurz describes, but enough to make me switch to CCI Mini Mags from the SV target ammo I was using till a 10-15mph zephyr blew one of my shots clean out of the bull:mad:
The hypervel stuff seemed to even things up in the wind.
My scores at 25 and 50yds are no threat to anyone's self-esteem
...Yet!
But I'm gaining on it!:t
This is FUN! :D
