    When you go to a match (especially one that's over an hour away), make sure you have your belt (with your holster and mag pouches on it) with you.

    :rofl:

    I ended up having to borrow a holster (right handed) and a few mag pouches.

    Worked out okay, had to draw & transition each time and i had to pocket load a couple times but whatever. It coulda been worse. :o

    I almost ended up having to use a right handed XD holster (it fit but was tight) but finally someone came up with one for a glock. :o

    What was it Sgt. Highway said? "Adapt, improvise, overcome!"

    one of the matches I went to, I decided it would be a good idea to clean my handgun the night before.
    I got to the match, and my gun just wouldn't run. FTE's almost every round. Turns out I left the ejector sitting on my work bench. :(
    A friend let me borrow his gun, so I was able to shoot, but it was the first time I'd shot his gun, so it was surely a learning experience.
