I always take 2 extra rifles and an extra shotgun with me. Never know when someone will need one.

I constantly think about that Mr. Culpepper. The amount of good folks in our game is truly a great thing.

 

The most help I've had over the last year in improving my game has come from the folks in my own category. ^_^

 

Truly the "cowboy way". ;)

catastrophic screw up in any other shooting sport is just a chance for a pard to save the day in this one.

 

I have no doubt that if coffeepot had not been there, there would have been another step forward.

 

name me another sport where something like that can happen. I DARE you!

Left for Tombstone two weeks ago, with everything packed, except for my hat. Bought another one. I think I did it on purpose.

I have a list on my computer and before every match I print it out and check off every item that I put in the car. This way I don't forget anything.

How about showing up to the range on the wrong weekend to shoot?

 

Love getting older

Cowtown used to do Wildbunch on the first Sat, and Cowboy on the first Sunday and 3rd Sat. I showed up on the wrong day, unpacked my car, put on my 6 shooters, and was totally confused when they asked if I was shooting traditional or modern......

I saw the thread title and wondered whether a phopah was anything like the Grand Poobah of the water bullalo lodge.

 

I think you mean "faux pas", literally "false step", a social misstep causing embarrassment. Did I get it right, Crazy Kajun?

You got the rest of it right but you kain't spell Krazy worth a Krap. :lol:

 

BTW: Grand PooBah was the first thing that came to my mind too. :lol:

Kaya would have offered her 20 gauge and I would have offered the 12 gauge ammo to go with it!

I'm getting to the advanced stage of CRS. Mary runs through a list of essential items as we head out - billfold, glasses, phone, keys.

 

I usually start accumulating "stuff" for match days in advance and load truck with cart and such the evening before. We normally don't take extra guns but have learned to take double ammo so we can backup for each other or loan guns/ammo to others. I load all ammo in one big roasting pan for transport. Makes it easy to check things off. I load each set of guns into a tactical soft case so it's easier to keep track of. Then on match morning I load gun cases, leather hats, etc and we're ready to roll. Then Mary and I do walk around and I point out what I've loaded.

 

Mary forgot a most important item to bring to last local match - food. We always run well past my eating schedule. I really run into trouble if I don't eat something on schedule. I seen she had a grocery sack of "stuff" and figured she had plenty. But it was a bowl of Halloween candy and non-food items. I can't do candy. It wasn't pleasant. Of course, it was MY fault. She decreed, if I wanted food I needed to gather it up and bring it. Well, I see her point. I did everything else, I should do this chore too.

my problem was that I put the extra rifle in the sg case, for some reason not realizing it was not the SG!!!

 

Warden, I am the same way with food, thus one of my alias's alias Peanut Butter....

Have narrowed all the crap down to 3 items--- All 4 guns in one case, all ammo in a zippered bag, guncart---If I have the cart, I have my leather, glasses, hearing protection, etc. etc. Then check the car at least twice to be sure all three are there and at least once a little while after leaving home. So far so good. Although almost left the hat once--the check once on the road saved that one!!

 

It sure is nice to know that when your brain farts, there will always be numerous pards to the rescue.

I have showed up at the range with all my stuff, only the wrong range. I forgot which Saturday of the month it was and drove west instead of south.

No misses or procedurals. It was a good day spent hitting all of the gunshops on the way home.

I left home once without my pistols, but when I got to the match it was raining pretty good, so the match was canceled. I didn't even know I had forgotten my pistols till got home and was unpacking!
