i had occasion to go to the range yesterday afternoon before the big snowstorm hit and figured that my fingers would last long enough for only one gun. i chose a ruger lcr 22lr. i shot off 300+ rounds of winchester, cci standard & quiet, and blazer ammo. had a few initial ftf on all but the winchester but recyled the cylinder and all fired on the second try (love revolvers). shot at paper plates at 15’, then at clay and wood debris in the berm at 50’. yes, im a lousy shot, but rapid double taps into a paper plate at 15’ works for my ccw needs. i thought of my dad and uncle in the ardennes 73 years ago. unlike them i enjoyed a fun solitary time shooting in the still, frigid winter air.

what one gun would you choose?

My dad has an old S&W 669.

I could shoot that gun all day - it's an absolute peach and it may follow me home next time I'm out that way for a range day.

The only gun I almost always use is my ccw G42. But good you got out to do it in bad weather. You need to do bad condition stuff for CCW. I was out in wind and 10F (or less) the other day. I always gake 10 loaded mags so that's about 12 minutes in the elements//lol.

Any gun? I'm interested in the Sig Sauer P239 SAS .357sig caliber single stack sub-compact at the moment, so that would be my choice to test drive. If it has to be one of my own guns it would be my Bushmaster XM-15. For some reason cold weather just says rifle to me more than pistol.

Probably my G19. I have the most mags for it, so I would load all of them up at home and avoid needing to take off the gloves for any reasons!

Did it get tough to reload the cylinder in the cold? 22LRs being so small, I would imagine they'd need more dexterity to deal with. Or maybe by then the cylinder was was a welcome warmth smile

i wanted to shoot 22lr, so my choice was either a ruger sr22 or lcr. i chose the lcr because i carry it more. i lost the feeling in my fingers about 30 rounds shy of emptying my last box of blazer. did i stop? heck no, haha. actually that is when i thought of my dad and uncle in the ardennes.

You are brave. I dont go to the range if its under 50 degrees. And where I live, that's realistically only like 4 days a year that I cant go to the range.

And people complain about the price of ammo...

Guided missle of some sort. You can see the control wire coming off the back of it.
