Just wondering if everyone is getting hit by the high heat temps?
Here in Alabama, the temps are in the upper 90's. Add the humidity on top of that and it's unbearable.
I go to the range every weekend at least once if not twice. But this weekend I haven't been. And the range is covered on the top.
I don't even feel like going outside and cleaning out my UVF barrel.
How is it in other parts of the country???

Hot weather

Here in South Carolina the situation is about the same as there in Alabama.A bunch of us who usually get together every Wednesday at the range have not been lately due to the fact of the hot weather.When you are sweating like a sawmill worker and just plain feeling uncomfortable it is hard to enjoy or concentrate on shooting.

Here in Maryland we had been in the 90's with heat index's in the 100 degree range for the past week until today. Last week we had very high humidity as a result of the remnants of Hurricane Emily that stalled over the Ohio valley. Lots of scattered Thunderstorms and torrential downpours.

Yesterday and today have been absolutely wonderful. Low humidity, temps in the high 80's - low 90's. Perfect day to be at the range, which is where I spend this morning. Woo Hoo!!

90 degree temps are predicted through mid-week.

Guys
I wished we had a bit of your heat. We have 44F (+7C).. Had to turn on the furnace to get the house warm. On top of that the wind is blowing with light rain. thought for a while it would snow. I may still do that.

Fred, I'd gladly trade you for a mild temp of 44ºF, I can dress for cooler temps, but you can only take off so much for the heat and then you're stuck to live with it!!
