    It's April 21 and I still have to dig through fresh and not so fresh snow to find my brass. Numb fingers and my nose running faster than I can lick it. At least it keeps some of the riff-raff from wanting to live here. This winter is sure getting old:barf:

    But hey, we have no AWBs, Magazine capacity limits and we do have both open carry and Shall Issue CCW, so I gues I should keep my complaints to a minimum.:D

    Lol

    We don't have that problem down here but about once every 5-10 years. Then we shut the whole state down.

    Spread out a large tarp before shooting.

    "Ya know what (also) sucks?"
    when people post about a geographic location and the weather there, then talk about the pros and cons of living "here," but don't say where that place is. Sort of makes for a difficult to understand post. I don't know what a cheddar curtain is... Wisconsin?

    Answers:
    Post#2: Yes, I have brass catchers for my rifles, both the flimsly Caldwell bag with velcro and a good one I fabricated that hooks solidly over the upper. I haven't been able to find a good one or invent one yet for my compact 1911.

    Post #3: Whine now complete. Forgive me.

    Post #4: I have relocated a number of times and my plan has always been to end up in the mid-South to South for retirement. Ironically, I have learned that God has a sense of humor and I may have my plans, but my career path has caused each of my relocations to be further North.

    Post #6: For sure!

    Post #7: Yes I have thought of the tarp idea, but fooling around in the wind with it and the fact that my 1911 seems to spread it's brass over a half acre or so I passed.

    Post #8: Yes, just not too witty way of describing the northwoods of Wisconsin.

    There: Rant complete and the whining will now cease. Hope I have brought a ray of sunshine into your lives. :neener:

    Plodder,

    My Wisconsin raised wife really likes the "cheddar curtain" reference.

    In my experience, God does, indeed, have a sense of humor. At least as concerns the weather. Many of the nasty weather records for northern Virginia have occurred since we moved here. I keep waiting for news about glaciers in the Blue Ridge.

    As far as the brass is concerned, one word: revolvers! ;)

    You know you'd rather live no place else. :p

    WI is such a beautiful state, and most of the folks there are very warm and welcoming. There's so many small and medium size towns that just feel like "home" and I've never lived there. We'll mail you a shop towel for your nose. :D

    Don't see why you are complaining at least you have ammo to shoot.:D Betcha you complain the first week of 85 degree weather this summer too.:neener: I usually wait till the local glacier thaw and go prospecting for brass. Bring it home by the 5 gal bucket for a bit.

    The flowers and trees are all blooming around here. :D

    It'll be over a 100 here around june. I've seen it hit 105 here in may. I don't what's worse constant heat or constant cold! It was a nice breezy 85 today and I got a sunburn working cattle. It was 45 just 4 days ago. Texas weather...it's as unpredictable as a new bride.

    I only wish we could have had a winter. Sweated most of deer season. Only broke ice twice during duck season. But I sure love Oklahoma. The only other place I'd rather live is......heaven.

    I'm with BigBore44 on OK. Mild winters for the most part. Summers are better here than some I have been in. Lot of good fishing lakes. Plenty of public hunting areas. Now if I could only get allowed to hog hunt near Sailboat Bridge I would be set.

    We get the worst of it every season. The indoor ranges are packed in winter, too hot in the summer, and the closest public outdoor range is an hour and a half from me.

    plodder,

    I was raised near Eagle River, WI. Moved to Florida in '96. I've discovered that Wisconsin is a great place to be from.
