Quote of the day–KW Hipps

I just got the new (blue) rule book. It says anyone shooting a classifier at below freezing temperatures in falling snow deserves the crummy score they get.

We start shooting at 10:00 and probably won’t be done until 12:00 (the wimps won’t be there so it shouldn’t take too long). 20 to 25 MPH winds and snowing. This is practical shooting. Caleb and I plan be there. Pictures later if I manage to make it over Snoqualime Pass this afternoon on my way back to the Seattle area. The current pass report:

Conditions & Weather:
Snow, slush and ice on the roadway. Interstate 90 eastbound is reduced to one lane as the WSP performs chain enforcement near milepost 34. // Snowing hard, poor visibility

Today is going to be an interesting day. Perhaps Serenity Washburn ‘interesting’.–Joe]

  1. Serenity – I like Jayne’s concept of being appropriately armed. (Anything that he can carry…)
