    to hot to shoot

    no shooting today....temp just hit 92 degrees with high humidity. very unusual here. only a couple days a year get like this, and that's to many !!. we usually enjoy low humidity with daytime temps in the low to mid 70's, and mid 50's at night. this is awful. glad it's just 1 day.

    That is pretty much everyday in Southwest Florida from early May through late October. Highs at 90+, lows in the upper 70s, dew points in the 70s. We try to do all of the outdoor stuff before 10am and after the afternoon thunder storms..

    A military force, at the command of Congress, can execute no laws, but such as the people perceive to be just and constitutional; for they will possess the power, and jealousy will instantly inspire the inclination, to resist the execution of a law which appears to them unjust and oppressive.

    Well it's about 5 PM here and currently at an actual temperature of 103. It's been 95+ here for several weeks now. Today and tomorrow will be the hottest. Too hot to do anything!!

    ^^^this^^^ I will say that I do ok with May but by June it's getting toasty. And hopefully things have cooled a bit before the end of October.

    Biggest problem for me is Mon-Fri working in an open air, if you can call it air, warehouse! So far today I haven't so much as opened the door at home!

    Get a CO2 powered BB air pistol and a backstop and shoot in your home. That way you can sit in your recliner and still have fun "blessing the heck" (making holey) out of a target.
    I did that a year or two ago.
    My backstop was a large cardboard box filled with sheets of cardboard with a target stapled to it. Every 500 or so BBs I would collect the BBs out of the backstop for reuse.
