    Joining you from Alaska! I love the 10/22 as a fun gun to build, plink with and collect unique versions. I have been shooting the Steel Challenge for about almost a year and a half with a 10/22 and a Browning Buckmark and I am addicted. I have a good friend I do almost all my shooting with and starting to reload for the first time as well. Currently building an AR to start 3 gun in the spring. I found the forum to try to get some info about a 10/22 forsale locally that I have never seen before, and is still a mystery to me.

    Theres my poorly put together introductory paragraph for ya :Cooltu:

    The Steel Challenge today was -1*. Thank god for my thermals and propane heaters!

    My local Cabelas has whatever the coldest rating of their thermal fleece gear is in the bargain cave marked at 40$ a piece with the blue 50% off lowest price stickers as well. Got a top and bottom for $20 a piece, cant beat it!

    Welcome to the forum. I've been to that state 4-5 times and can't wait to go back!

    Welcome, Alaskan. You are shooting, having fun, and (I'm assuming) covering your ears against both cold and noise. Cheers.

    I served a year in Thule Greenland (well above the Artic Circle) a few (well OK a lot of) years ago. The coldest it got was -38° F. I had experienced -45°F on Main St. in my home town in Vermont.

    Welcome from Texas. :tiphat:
    Most of us that have never been to your state dream about going someday.
    I'm one of those.

    Glad to have you, looking forward to reading your posts.

    Welcome to the forum from Illinois. I've been in -25* weather before in South Korea, and I'm not interested in visiting AK, I want to move there. Wife won't go, so I'm stuck, it's too cold for her.

    Welcome to our forum. I have always wanted to go to your state and fish for grayling however age and lack of money have dashed those dreams. But that doesn't mean I still can't dream. You live in a wonderful state except for the mosquitoes.
