Best thing about shooting in the rain is that you're alone.

Range or desert shooting -- everybody else stays away.

I liked it the first time, but immediately disliked it as soon as I had to clean the rust off of my 1911. I'll still go out in the rain, but next time I'm only bringing the Glock and other plastic guns.

I dont like shooting in the rain cause I get paranoid. I feel like my guns are going to rust so I will come home and strip them all and clean and oil them. Ive done it twice and I wont do it again. It takes a long time stripping them all and oiling them. Gets annoying.

The only reason why I like shooting in the rain at my local range is because there's usually nobody there.

I love the rain/snow/cold weather. I'm like an arctic bear. I love to hunt in wet weather. Heck, I only hope for wet weather during open season. This year so far I'm really hatin it as winters almost over and the weather has been dry and warm.

Rain is awesome. Most everyone else stays home and gets drunk.
