Please....seeking answer only from people experienced in shooting in heavy snowfall....so that would leave out "expert"responses from any southern U.S. residents?....er..… non- residents... on this forum.Does heavy snowfall affect the flight path of .177 or .22 pellets @ pal velocities?

No, your pellet's flight will not be affected by snowfall. It's unlikely to be affected by rainfall, either -- with the odds increasing somewhat in a torrential downpour.

Subjecting a properly blued firearm, re: medium end and up rifle and shotgun wont affect it too much if you disassemble and properly clean...on the other hand, a lot of airguns have VERY cheap \ weak bluing (unless you shoot Weinrauch's exclusively). They will most certainly need a disassembly and clean up if out in a snow storm or two.

When hunting back in the day, I used a silicone rag, usually grey, sold at Canadian Tire and other stores. Moisture beaded right up and ran off. Dont get it on scope lens, pain to remove :)

Plinking at snowballs with the airgun is fun... Fighting off the snowman with the shotgun is 'funner' :mrgreen:
