    I keep my gun in my glove box while at work. Minneosta winters are very cold. Will I have problems if I have to fire my Glock after it has been sitting in the cold all day or in the car?
    Thanks!

    no i wouldn't think that they would some places that sell ammo keep them in fridges to preserve them from over heating and moisture/corrosion

    As long as the lubrication hasn't frozen, you should be fine.

    Militec-1 starts to freeze at -45 degrees, and would probably be the most ideal, easily available lube for sub-zero temps. i forget what the temps for CLP are, but it doesn't go as low as the Militec.

    When the gun is extremely cold, rapid fire could damage the barrel, so don't go blowing off ten mags in a row until the gun heats up.


    But to more directly answer the question as you phrased it, no, the ammo itself is fine.
