Broke out the Type 53 and the Blackout pistol today. 19 F, but windy enough to forcefully inhale.
Mosins pass the "white glove" test. Mainly, I can load them while wearing heavy leather insulated gloves. Had I used my clips, it would have been even easier. The BLK needed me to switch to my tactical batting glove to load the mag. Otherwise, it too could be operated with the heavy gloves on. Putting a finger inside the trigger guard takes effort.
