Playing in the Cold Weather/Snow

Now, i'm not exactly a new player but I'm going to play this weekend and the forecast is high of 37 degrees F. and occasional flurries. I have long johns and a beanie and a neck gaitor. any thing else i should wear? any weird tricks for playing on the cold? yes, i run compressed air so im good with that. any advice is appreciated and thanks in advance.

good gloves I use some carbon fiber knuckle motorcycle gloves

they allow my hands to breath and not get moist

nice warm boots always help as well

i usually have a sweatshirt under my jersey and make sure you have a gun that will work good in the cold some spools like the luxe get horrible bolt stick, i see that as your biggest problem

make sure that the internals are lightly greased. Too much and it will increase your chance for bolt stick.
Upping the dwell / ABS will help if you start to experience it.

yes it should be fine. might want to either mix in a little oil with your grease, or raise the dwell and anti bolt stick settings a tad. pretty much all spool valves have this problem. grease gets thick in the cold.

dont try to use super brittle paint either, cold makes paint even more brittle. its nice for breaking on people, but also increases breaks in your gun too. dont be suprised by a few barrel breaks if you have any.

tends to be wet outside when its cold...bring a change of clothes, or at least a dry pair of socks lol.

This! the first few times I played in the snow and ended up riving home with wet cloths was miserable.
