    Crap, stupid Bio-Chem homework! I'm stuck inside doing a 7 page homework assignment after only being in class for a week. :yuck:

    Hopefully I can make it to some later events.

    It'll be worth it Jixx! Keep hammerin' away. It'll be Dr. Jixx in no time.

    You can shoot for the rest of your life. You'll only be in school for a few more years. Do your best.

    Wow, I don't recall ever shooting that well in my life. I guess everyone deserves one day like that.

    I've had mine, who's next?

    Bring a gun, ammo, water, lunch, snacks, a camera, and a good attitude. Show up early so you can get a squad and instructions.

    You'll get all the safety info when you arrive.

    Shotguns and rifles need a chamber flag. Pistol are carried on the person with the mag out and chamber empty. No sling is needed in 3-gun. Bring extra ammo, what's written on UDPL.net is the minimum, I always bring double.

    Don't expect to win your first match. It's all for fun with the first few, you'll learn a lot of stuff that will help you improve.

    If you know you're going to attend a match then you can start a post and try to get on a squad with people here that are also attending.

    I bring so much extra ammo it's silly. Sometimes I bring enough to shoot the match 3.5 times.

    Hey, I'm a reloader. It's a disease.

    Oh yeah I know what you mean.

    I'm getting ready to put in an order to 2-alpha bullets as well as powder valley. That should have me stocked up on stuff for a while.

    Next step is to buy a bunch of ammo cans to store all the stuff I reload. I've used up all the ones I have.
