    I think -22F is my record for a range trip. Competed in a Shoot to Retrieve competition at a shooting preserve once when it was that cold and near 2 feet of fresh snow on the ground. We won the tourney, got our 4 birds in 8 minutes as I remember. Had Black Lab female that was one of the best pheasant dogs I've ever seen, certainly the best I'll ever own. Man I miss her.

ID:	211716 I took these photos at our club military rifle shoot in February, 2004. As you see the temperature was a balmy -30. We were tough back then.

    Went to the tail water pond this morning for a bit of duck hunting.
    Pond was frozen solid, went back home and reloaded 12 gauge ammo
    and vacuumed the house

    Only a true gun nut would be shooting in these temps.

    It's 11 degrees here, with a wind chill of -1. Did a little welding this morning and my mustache froze...

    Might shoot some 38 special later.

    Once in a different life, a friend of mine went floating the Little Sioux River on Pheasant opening day. The temp was hovering about freezing and a combo of sleet, ice, and rain was falling. We got some ducks and hypothermia by the time we made it to the pull out point. It was too cold and wet for the way we were dressed. Had fun no the less.
