    What ammo?

    I always like the Double Tap 115 from my RAMI, and the LC9 that my wife had for a few months.



    However, the Speer or Hornady 124s also shot good.

    Me too Dave. For me the shoulder holsters come out and I spend some time shooting with gloves. We also have to throw the winter gear in our vehicles and change our weapon lube to deal with the cold. Last year at the New Year's day 3gun match, a few carbines, shotguns, and also pistols would lock up. Mostly froglube and eezox had to flushed out of the weapons to make them run. It was 7 degrees out. Den

    I still carry my Mod2 .45 and my Elsie strapped to my ankle. That's my all seasonal carry.

    Den, did you say Froglube was causing your pistols to lock up from the extreme cold? What lube did you use to prevent this.

    Saltair, I only use Breakthrough oil and their battle born grease on all of my guns. The grease and oil don't cause your gun to bind up like Frog lube dose when it gets very cold. Breakthrough is used by our military in the extreme cold weather.

    I should have elaborated. My weapons didn't freeze up but it was an eye opener for some shooters. It was determined their lubes were not used correctly. They left the lube too thick and the cold weather caused the weapon bolts and slides to bind. Easy to flush and re-lube but made for a poor first stage of the match.
    My weapons run great with synthetic products and I just use a thinner blend in the winter. At a winter match my pistol keeps warm under my jacket but the long guns are kept in a rack out in the cold. Den

    Gentlemen, thanks for the info. I use a very thin coat of Froglube on my carry guns but my AR's like to run a little wet. Going to have to give Breakthrough oil a try. Even the carry guns may sit in a cold locked safe inside the vehicle if one goes into a Government building for a few hours. Don't need no Gunky guns.

    Slip 2000 EWL (Extreme Weapons Lubricant) passes the ASTM D445 Kinematics Viscosity test at -59°F.

    Slip 2000 EWL is what I use for my firearms lubricant.

    I too are a fan of 100% synthetic lubes for my weapons and just about everything else. All my old model airplane engines and fishing gear is totally locked up from using Dino oil before storage. I can free them up but it will take a bit of effort. Just like we moved from ignition points to electronic ignition, and from Carburetors to fuel injection, We should probably move from dinosaur oil to full synthetic. I guess my lawn mower and chain saw have ignition points and a carb, but I run them on synthetic lube. Denny
