Tip of the day

Keep your bag packed. It sounds simple, and it is, but you cannot overestimate the importance of this. Today it is far to easy too make excuses not to practice or attend a match. Everyday pressures and overbooked schedules prevent us from doing the things we like. If you finally get the chance you've been waiting for to get in a little range time you don't want to dread rushing to pack your gear before heading off to the range.

Ben and I repack our bags as soon as we return from the range every time. We replenish our ammo supply, clean out any trash and spent brass, make any repairs or adjustments and wipe down and oil our guns. Then we close it up and put our holster belt on top, and we are 100% ready to hit the range at a moments notice.

You never know when your schedule will clear up a little or a friend will call or email and invite you to the range. Be ready for it.
