Check list before I leave.

Recommended Posts

Sat down the other night and wrote out a complete check-list of everything i needed for a particular match.  WHY? you ask?  Because I cleaned my mags and I left them all  a  table.  From now on-- no more thinking I have everything.  I am physically touching everything on my check list to make sure its in my bag.

I’ve done stupid stuff just like that. The list is a very good idea.

I have left my ammo before. So I have made a checklist before each match.

Worse, I was leaving the range one day in a hurry and left my 

shooting bag ….

 

At least 3 Open mags, plus other stuff ….

 

Fortunately, the RO found my bag, and I phoned him just in

time to claim my bag and contents - happy ending    :)

Someone else here posted the best checklist.  Goes something like: bullets go into the mags which go into the gun which goes into the holster which goes on the belt which goes onto the inner belt/pants.  You can beg, borrow or buy anything else if you forget them.

I forgot my whole bag and my belt. I ended up using my M&P 9c in open because I had mags stuffed in all my pockets. Still had fun, but I haven't done it a second time.

Buddy and I were going from Dayton to Owensboro, Ky. for a 3 gun match. About 20 miles from Louisville, I realized I forgot my belt. I'm left handed, and it was a custom drop leg holster for an open gun, so I wasn't going to be borrowing one. Had to turn around, drive 2.5 hours back, then start over. He said, "We're half way there, and haven't even left the house yet." I now use a mantra, "guns, mags, ammo, eyes, ears, belts" for the bare minumum that will get me through a match.

I'm a huge fan of checklists.  I have several that I've fine tuned over the years for various activities.

Yeah I'm making a checklist too.

 

Forgot my belt when I went to a weekly match yesterday. Luckily one person borrowed his extra.

Bare minimums are a good start. What do I need to shoot a stage? Then what if my gear malfunctions? Then what do I do in between stages? (food, water, shade, sit)
