I'm up here. Soldotna to be exact. I have been building a kit Kentucky rifle, which is about done. I'm a long-time gun guy and hunter, but new to BP. I will be taking my gun out for 1st firing next weekend if it warms up. Not thrilled about shooting in below zero weather!

Awesome! I have been putting off any kind of plinking for the same reason, handling small tedious items necessary to shoot is very unpleasant!

I haven't even busted a cap yet! I'll wait for milder weather (-12 here). My rifle is now done and I'm waiting for the next kit in the mail.

We live in the Valley. I took the the F&G ML test last year (2019) when it was well below freezing...I thought that was cold and was very glad when they said I passed the shooting part. This year (2020) I checked out a new place to shoot (killing time while the dog was at the beauty shop) and there were a couple of guys shooting ML...it was 15 degrees when I got home.

I'm in Homer. First gun I saw go off was my father shooting a muzzle loader at dusk. The flame was really impressive to a kid sitting in the back of a '49 Hudson.
The 49 Hudson would be impressive too.
