Winter snarkiness?

Post by Aprilian on 12/8/2017, 3:00 pm

It seems like lately there have been a few more "sharp" comments and more willingness to take offense - even when not intended.   I notice this same thing on my motorcycle forums every winter as those with snow don't get in any riding "therapy" during these dark months.

Are we witnessing something similar here as those of us in the East and Midwest (or India) are not getting as much shooting time in?

Love you too Dave - well only if you give me extra points when scoring me at the line next year!

I'm shooting a 60 shot/week indoor 22/45 league with some 3M individuals I met.   That also gives me time to work on the issues I want to train on.  Also, a full 900/1800/2700 indoors is more fumes than I can take as I am continuing to successfully drop my lead levels.

I understand.
They are all either 2 gun 1800 or 3 gun 1800.  All the ranges have great ventilation, talk to Kent he is working on getting his lead levels down too.

I seem to remember talking to Kent about lead on the drive home last year from Wadena.  George was wearing a dust mask there and I could taste the powder, so I'm not sure on their ventilation.

You Minnesotans should come and shoot with us at Osage. Their range is warm, well lit and has decent ventilation. And they feed you chili.  Ask George or Wally.

Missed the Dec. match but Kent, Roger and I made the Nov. match, we plan on making the rest of them.

Outdoor shooting year-round in the SF Bay Area. Wednesday night at league it dipped into the 40s.

Come shoot at Sunnyvale with us and I promise to deliver snark to you in person rather than via keyboard!

Yep, wanting to be home so I can "do", not just "read".....Sad

Maybe for me it's a different kind of "snakiness", as it's not what I would call "winter", much closer to a never-ending "summer".  Sorry if I'm one of the people you're referring to.  If so, it certainly wasn't intentional.

I have experienced snarkiness more frequently this winter, but I have attributed it to my nasty snowed in disposition in general.
