To all that are signed up for the class. Get your raingear and waterproof all your gear. I emailed Mike and asked what the alternative plan was due to the hurricane. He said we will shoot anyway. He also said ammo requirements would be 800 rounds for each. Dig out your galoshes and raingear and get ready. Hopefully it will die out before it gets to us. I don't guess we'll know how the storm will act until the night before. I personally do not look forward to shooting in the hurricane and those nasty conditions,but I've waited for this class for almost 4 months now and could not wait for the day to get here. Will anybody not go due to the weather?

That would be wind speeds in excess of 45mph.

Hell No.....I was kidding about the hardcore thing. See the smiley face? I'll be there rain or shine. Just not crazy about drillin' in hurricane weather. Rain has never bothered me. Winblown rain and 40 mph gusts do. Not to mention 8am-11pm in 4" of mud under 6" of water. That gets miserable and takes the fun out of something that I enjoy. But rain does not bother me to bad. I'm hoping for the best possible. I waited too long to miss this. My post was just curious as to how others would react and to pass along the info.

Well, since we're throwing in our .02 cents, I'd rather not be knee deep in mud but I also won't be shooting anything that won't work in mud

Think like the Spartans... no Sun no heat (the the Persians told them their arrows would cover the Sun).

And if it's raining your rifles will be cool all the time...

Damn... I'm missing all this fun... should have stayed in GA...
