Spring has Come to Texas and the shooting range has dried up to the point were we can shoot.
Brought the No4 Mk1 Longbranch  and my Gew 1888/05  range. Best prone score was a 87/100. Fun Factor enormousBig smile
Have a Nice Day
If already having a nice day please disregard

I must be thankful for living in the South East now for the last 20 years.  Best time to shoot is the winter months.  Firing point is covered. I did get snowed out of a match once last December, 11 inches of snow at my house overnight and lost power for two days.   Don't have to walk down to the targets anymore either with the electronic scoring system.  But dang, that concrete is HARD!!!!  And, I shoot and reload a LOT more than I used to (but that's not a bad thing).

On our range, I have to use the tractor and a blade to clean the way in, and up to the targets still.
a foot to 3 feet of snow still at present.  Only -15C the last few nights, so getting warmer.
Been  along winter.

Britrifles.
Try a Yoga mat, or an actual shooting mat if you feel spendy. Even those foam sleeping pads for camping work well.

I am using a shooting matt!  And a shooting coat, but still gets uncomfortable when you spend 6 hours at the range.  The range is rarely called cold, so no reason to stop shooting!

Of course, this has nothing to do with getting older....
