    So finally got my G20SF to the range with the Barsto barrel, I had to go sight in my Aimpoint for today's carbine match, the AP is brand new, and when I went to shoot the 10, guess what?

    Found out in my hurry for the rifle stuff forgot my 10MM ammo......:rofl:


    So range trip to follow soon :faint:

    Man when I was guiding i saw guys with 'buck fever" forget to even jack a shell in the chamber, and a ton of other things... haha

    But 10mm FEVER !!! Forgetting ammo and holding an empty gun, How could you do such a thing man ? Slow down, take your time amigo, you'll get a more harmonious outcome.... Plus you'll get to shoot your gun ! :rofl:


    Great report. That really baits us for the next one... Please don't post that you brought your ammo but forgot your gun ! :supergrin:


    Hey so sweat. I've never made a mistake ! :whistling:



    Screw your head back on FM, and let's here those rounds roaring !!!! ;)


    Later amigo.
    Just wantd to "cheer you up." haha.

    I got a good chuckle out of it, went to reach in the range bag for the pistol and the 10MM ammo was no where to be found. My wife said good, now next time I can go with you and shoot the new 10MM as well.

    Hopefully in the next day or so I can get out. I was so tunnel visioned on the Red Dot and sighting it in because we had drill night tonight with the carbine that I forgot the pistol stuff lol.

    So in spite of no 10MM I had a little fun with the plate rack at 20 yards with my G19 working on my hold overs for whenever they might surprise us with that again for IDPA, lol.

    I'll have to admit, I chuckled too! I'm sure everyone, has forgotten to take something to the range. Better to have forgotten the ammo, then the hearing protection! Which, by the way, I made the mistake of doing, almost 30 years ago. Remember when Ruger came out with the Security Six? Had a new, 2" barreled one, given to me, for Christmas, from my Fiance. Took it to the club with a friend. Needless to say very excited about shooting it. Let's just say, very few rounds were sent down range, and if I knew then, what I know now, none would have been! At times, I can still hear the ringing!!!

    Would like to add, make sure you take the wife, and tell her, to not let you forget the ammo this time.:supergrin:

    LOL yeah we will make an effort to remember the ammo, lol.

    As for the Ruger, all I can say is OUCH! Hope it didn't mess up the hearing too much.

    What did ya say?:fred:

    It was stupid, and, a valuable lesson was learned. One thing I'm sure of, is, the damage was less, shooting the Ruger, than the damage that was done to my hearing, going to see Metallica in 91. I begged people for ear plugs. I think I was about the oldest person there, and it was so loud, it wasn't untill we got to the parking lot, that the particular song playing, was recognizable! One more place I won't attend without hearing protection! Not that I will ever attend another concert again, for the rest of my life.:supergrin:

    My father ruined his hearing back in the 70's when hearing protection was not en vogue. He used to shoot Lugers and Walther P-38's on an indoor range.

    I could never imagine doing that.

    I hear you Fire Medic, I load up a range bag full of ammo, tablet to take notes and guns, range box of cleaning tools just in case, and the CHRONY and targets. Life was simpler when I would drive out to place and shoot cans or other debris people threw out in the woods.

    Today many places or leased as hunting land or off limits for whatever reason, mostly dumping...now I have to go to a range when I can get there.

    Man I've done it a few times too. Usually I forget a certain pistol ... or I forget my chrony. Lol.

    Better luck next time!

    Not true! At least with a rifle, you could stab a coyote, with the barrel, easier, then you could stab anything, with a G20SF!:freak:

    Last week I went to the range, pulled out my pistol, ammo, hearing protection, hung my target and went to load my magazines.....oops, left those at home. The LGS lent me a G17 mag so I could get some range time in.

    I leave one of all my popular magazines in my range bag for that very reason, after about 3-4 trips home over the years to retrieve magazines, I figured it out, slow learner... :faint:

    I was on the bike, grabbed everything but the magazines out of my range bag when I was getting ready to walk out the door. I'll have to start leaving spares in my smaller bag that fits the trunk of my bike

    Ever forgotten the GUNS?!?

    Been there. Done that.

    Loaded up all the rifles, gear, mags, safety equip and targets. Was so concentrated on the rifles I left without the pistols. Can't do much with a bunch of loaded mags and no pistols.

    Unless I meet one of you guys who forgot their mags... :)
