    It's getting hot out there...

    almost everywhere in the States... and it's been hot for a while... and may be so for a while yet...
    Just something else to keep in mind in the current conditions... It really does apply to those of us who carry,too...

    Tempers are a bit closer to the surface... It's not just road rage... it's sidewalk rage... A lot of folks are on edge....

    Keep your temper "on ice." Don't overreact... I've seen a lot more road rage in the last week... I've even seen someone go ballistic (verbally) on the sidewalk against another pedestrian...

    It's definitely 'Glock season' for me. My pretty iron is safely nestled in climate-controlled safes.

    It's ALWAYS hot where I live. Every year, sooner or later, it becomes "Africa hot". And every year I complain about it like its never happened before. But I agree, for those who aren't used to it, be careful, it makes people crazy!

    You betcha!

    I went to the GSSF match in Indianapolis this weekend. We wanted to shoot in the cool of the morning. Ha! We were there three hours and I personally went through 1 liter of Gatorade and 5 liters of water.

    3rd times a charm eh MrBuckwheat.

    Been 110 plus most of the last 2 weeks here, got a dose of instant humidity SUnday morning. I despise the heat. 65 and cloudy/rainy is what I prefer.

    Its kinda weird this year. It's the first summer I can remember that we've had more days under 100 than over.

    Very mild summer in my neck of the woods. I guess the east stole our summer. Well, you're welcome to it!!!

    Now if those sidewalk pedestrians were out working in the fields I could understand them being upset with the heat

    LOL @ Africa Heat.. I live in SC more than I do PA these days and it's always hot as hell here too. I also live in a tourist area, so it seems as if tempers are always flared for one reason or another but extremely hot days definitely brings it out even more..
