    It Woke Me UP!

    It was about 15-20 degrees out and I threw my gun in the lockbox in my car. 8 hours later I got back into my car and went to slide my g22 back in the 330 position (IWB) and ##@!^@#&#$%^

    IT WAS SOO COLD.

    Like I got ice cubes in my pants!!!

    #1 Would you have preferred a gun that would burn your bits?

    #2 Why was the gun left in the car?

    There are often times many places that do not allow concealed carry, even in states that allow CCW. Placing a gun in the car is often times the only option available versus breaking the law...

    I wonder if you could toss some of those handwarmer packet things they sell in the outdoors type stores in with the gun... maybe it would keep it at least a little warmer.

    Well it's a darn good thing you weren't using a SmartCarry!
    ALWAYS carry! - NEVER tell!

    I went to work. Still looking for the carry combo for work. g22 and g30 are too big. Don't want to risk it.
