    But at least the shooters and the hardware stay dry with the undercover provided!

    hehe.. imagine what the rain will do to the flight path of a pellet if you hit one of those "streams" that run off the roof! Could end up dropping a target in the next lane

    Worlds 2005 we had to shoot in the rain, there is no big deal to shoot in the rain. OIL your rifle thoroughly before going out to shoot, that all.

    Over here in HFT we all wear brit army camo stuff , fully water proof .

    The shoot last Sunday at Glevum was in sunshine , but after a week of rain we were all lying in the mud wallowing like Hippo .

    The beauty of the waterproof outer gear , is afterwards in the car park , every one strips off and puts on their dry clothes to socialise and drive home.

    Great fun .

    When we shoot in the rain , ( often ) we have to strip the stock off , dry every thing and re-oil .

    Every thing seems to keep working ok !!

    Oh yes , most of us wear Gum boots or gortex military boots to trample around .[br]<div class='spacer'>[img:width=1024&height=682]../../Deadlinks/public/1207462594_61_FT48981_tom.jpg[/img]</div>
