    Hopefully it will be in the 50s and 60s every day after after this week.

    Pfft, it's just a little snow, jeez.

    My heavy jacket is a thermal-lined hooded sweatshirt.
    Why open carry? Because 1911 > 911.

    Wear layers and virginia-tuck.

    When it's pretty cold (20'sF and below) wear a short-sleeve-t-shirt, long-sleeve-t-shirt, and flannel all tucked into your pants and a large sweater on top tucked behind your gun. Don't forget the long-johns either; and keep your feet, hands, and head warm. Maybe you'll need bigger pants, but it's pretty easy to OC and stay warm.

    Take the sweater off in the 30's, take the flannel off in the 40's, and take the long-sleeve-t-shirt off in the 50's. Over 60, carry mexican-style in your swim trunks and go shirtless!

    Adding/removing layers is my way of adjusting the thermostat. Dress in layers around the house and you'll save money on your heating bill, too. I keep my thermostat at 60 for most of the winter. Why so high? If I go any lower my pipes start to freeze.


    EDIT: Realized that wearing gloves could make it difficult to draw and fire. Just wear one glove.

    Gotta be careful with that - wouldn't want anyone mistaking you for Michael Jackson, with the one glove and all.

    When I went out today, I just wore a light jacket, and tucked the end of one side into my waistband, so I wasn't concealing. Of course, by the time I get my CHP, it'll be warm enough that it won't be a problem anymore.

    God it was pathetic.

    I took my dog to the park so it could play in the snow, saw 2-3 other dog's out there with their owners playing.

    NOT ONE SINGLE CHILD. NONE!

    My god, when I was 10, if we had 2'' of snow we'd be outside for hours playing. When your socks finally froze it was time to go home!

    Well I'm not a fan of playing IN the snow anymore. But I did have fun this morning romping around the neighborhood in the 4x4.

    If you think like a Statist, act like one, or back some, you've given up on freedom and have gone over to the dark side.
    The easiest ex. but probably the most difficult to grasp for gun owners is that fool permission slip so many of you have, especially if you show it off with pride. You should recognize it as an embarrassment, an infringement, a travesty and an affront to a free person.

    :what:It's people like you that make my DNA remember where I grew up. I can be bundled to the teeth, and still start shivering when I see you wacky people running around in shorts.

    Oh, lord. I thought we would be spared that during the winter months.
    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.

    You mean the ones where the gun chief yells, "Fi (blam!)"?

    Don't answer that on a family-oriented forum!!
