Snow Coming Soon? Well You Can Still Enjoy a Day at the Range

This week, starting on Tuesday evening, a snowstorm is predicted to hit the upper Midwest and Northeast, with snow from West Virginia to Maine. (SEE Weather Report) But if you want to go shooting this week, don’t let a little snowfall stand in your way. Heck, just grab your snow shovel and head to the range. That’s how Forum Member Nick (aka “ChevyTruck 83″) coped with winter’s fury back in 2012 (See Forum Thread). Never underestimate the resourcefulness of a dedicated AccurateShooter Forum member.

snow 2021 winter december shooting reports: “Snow showers could sweep through the upper Midwest on Tuesday and then the Ohio Valley and Central Appalachians on Tuesday night. Bands of light snow could spread through parts of the mid-Atlantic and Northeast on Wednesday. This might include parts of the Interstate 95 corridor from northern Virginia into New England.”

snow shooting range snowmanWe admire the fortitude of Forum Member Nick who, a few seasons back, braved wintry weather to enjoy a day at the range in his native Pennsylvania. A little snow on the ground couldn’t stop this intrepid shooter, who brought snow shovel and arctic gear to his range session. Folks, here’s a true “hardcore” fan of shooting! Despite the “relentless snow”, Nick reports that “at least it wasn’t windy”. Nick shot a variety of long guns, including his .22 LR rimfires, a .223 Rem, and a .308. Not daunted by the cold, Rick said it was fun to “play like a kid once in a while.” That’s the spirit!

Nick reports: “There was no wind to speak of — just relentless snow. I’ll tell you what — it’s awesome to get out and play like a kid once in a while.”

Nick’s foray into the winter wonderland really puts things in perspective for “fair-weather” shooters. After viewing Nick’s Forum thread about his snowy range session, fellow Forum member DennisH observed: “I will never complain about our super hot sugar cane fields in south Louisiana ever again! We can hold matches 12 months a year. I have NEVER had, owned, or used a snow shovel.”

Spotting Scope Bench Mount — Smart Solution

Creedmoor spotting scope bench clamp mount support hanger

Probably 95% of all civilian rifle shooting is done from the bench — if you include fun shooting, load development, sight-in sessions, practice days, youth training, as well as actual benchrest and club competitions. If you shoot with iron sights, or a low-power optic, you’ll definitely need a spotting scope to see your shots on target. And if you’re shooting long-range, that spotting scope will help you see mirage, as well as hits on far targets.

It’s not always easy to place a spotting scope near your bench. There are short benchtop tripods, but they take up precious bench-top space and can interfere with your non-favored arm placement/functions. Or you can deploy a complete separate tall tripod, next to the bench, but, frankly, that’s inconvenient, and with some bench structures it’s difficult to get the scope close enough to the shooter’s eye.

Here is a smart solution from Creedmoor Sports — a specialized, clamp-on Spotting Scope Support that mounts directly to the side of your bench. This will work with heavy, thick range benchtops as well as thinner-top portable shooting benches.

Creedmoor Spotting Scope Bench Mount

This mounting system clamps to the bench, allowing your spotting scope to be suspended near your face, with nothing below it to get bumped. If your buddy wants to look through the scope, simply spin the horizontal boom piece away from the bench. This system adjusts up and down and left and right. Set the scope head in any configuration you prefer. The $219.95 kit has everything you need, including all clamps AND the blue adjustable scope head. Select either 3/4″ rod diameter or 1″ rod diameter. (Bigger is better for heavier spotting scopes).

Creedmoor Bench Mount Spotting Scope Stand Features:

1″ or 3/4″ aluminum rods for vertical and horizontal support (18″ in length)
Anti-pivot pins to keep the mount from twisting on the edge of the bench
Includes high-grade Blue anodized adjustable scope head
Durable anti-slip rubber on the clamp
Micro-adjustment clamping stopper
