Set fire to the rain

OK, so my subscription with the weather gods must have lapsed – we were rained upon, heavily, today. That’s the first truly wet day for quite a while. Nevertheless, we had a stalwart bunch out, sending rounds down range in the challenging conditions of a strong side wind (don’t even think of using a .17HMR) quite apart from the wet getting into every nook and cranny of the shooting kit. It was a testing experience for clothing too – some of which definitely needs reproofing. Fortunately, the ground was still firm so we were able to drive to the firing point.
