Beautiful day to shoot...in the wind. Learning to read wind is kinda hard for anyone really. You can be a damn professional or an average Joe and still learn from and about it. You can read about it all you want but actually shooting in it is the best teacher. I live in Berwyn Pennsylvania and my weather app says it's 16-19mph from the northwest and I'm shooting my .177cal Prosport using AA Diabolo's 8.4gr 4.52mm off sticks while sitting on a 5gal bucket at 26yes. And where I'm shooting is the side of my home. I'm situated between the side of my house and a wooden 6 foot tall privacy fence and brother the wind is hawking through that like a wind tunnel. Just wanted to share with you guys/gals.

Any day shooting is a good day.  Probably don’t want to try to site it in though.

Its so windy here in norcal that the tree service won’t come out to remove limbs or trees.  I guess swaying in the boughs scared the guys that’s got to climb up the tree.  Understandable.

Was shooting today in my backyard also not to far from you Josh. Very humbling. Nice day to be outside no matter, wind or no wind. We won't get many like today in January.

Doug it's a darn shame too...today's kids you have to beat them or set their tablets on fire in order for them to go outside. My old lady's kids don't even know their own neighborhood. Well anyway it is very humbling and by the way, where do you live or was shooting at brother?
