    I like dry fun more than wet fun. ;)

    That would depent on what kind of fun it is. For matches I prefer dry fun too but I have fun even if it is wet. Ofcourse I live in Washington State so if I had to wait for dry weather to have fun I would not have very much fun.

    I've never been to a match in the rain so I've never had to deal with the target condoms. Do they make a big difference?

    Shot an IDPA match at Skip J range today! Even with a bunch of rain lately, things were in pretty good shape(no large mud hole yet)

    Been to Anderson and shot in the monsoon with said target condoms. Misery is an understatement, and trying to pick out the X-ring through wet, wind-blown, and opaque condoms brings out the worst in my shooting ability. Makes for a long drive home. But the looks we got walking into a nice restaurant later on were funny. ;f

    If you're 23 with good eyes, no. If on the other hand you're 53 with glasses set for your front sight, yes, a damn big difference. :(

    I can't see the rings at 25 yards on a sunny day. I just aim for the centerline of the D-1. Shot one of my best matches ever in a downpour at Waldorf, MD in 2001.

    As of this morning (Thursday) here's the forecast...

    Fri Apr 8 Scattered T-Storms 67°/53° 50%

    Sat Apr 9 Partly Cloudy 69°/49° 20%

    Sun Apr 10 Mostly Sunny 70°/48° 0%

    Not too bad. I can handle the rain on the travel day, as long as it clears out before we shoot. Hopefully, the ground won't be too soggy. At least we shouldn't need condoms on the targets.

    See what positive thinking can do????? :cool:

    Two hours away from Anderson and we're getting a soaking rain as I type this.

    Today's practice session is a no go! :( :( :(

    Luckily, Bob and I got in some practice this morning. Rain hasn't hit here yet. We're on the opposite end of the state. I imagine it will arrive any time now.

    Looking forward to the match this weekend. :)

    The current forecast calls for a possibility of showers on Saturday morning so bring your rain gear.
