    Snow outside here in Northern Bavaria, and the pond is frozen... great, on the first advent. But not good for shooting slingshots.

    It's cold enough to discourage me from shooting outside for like a month now. I shoot around the house a lot though.
     
  7. Thankfully it doesn't get that cold where I live, it only snows maybe a few times a decade.But maybe an hour drive into the hills where I used to live it snows every winter, though I don't think it reaches the 1 degree range very often. You guys are tougher than I am, my back would have me in tears with those temps.

  10. I wish for the 80's, like I said I'm a sissy when it comes to cold (too many injuries) and even the 40's we have right now makes me ache. <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_sad.gif" alt="Sad" longdesc="3">

    When I shoot outside in the cold I can literally feel the rubber getting less elastic as I am aiming.. Learned to aim faster.

    Guys, at what temperature do you stop and consider the temp too low to shoot?

    It's mostly the wind that is annoying, I can shoot at 0 C° if it's calm but I will go home after the first shot even if its 7 C° but it's blowing my shots off target and making my hands freeze.
