can I get an AMEN!? The first time I took my father coyote hunting he forgot his ammo at home.... bummer, I put 5 in our lap in the first 30 mins on set! Go figure.


Thanks for sharing.

I went to a rifle match one Saturday morning and in taking my gear to the firing line, I noticed I forgot my rifle. Had all the ammo needed then some.

Went to a match once and found after I arrived that I'd forgotten my shooting glasses. Still shot the match, just "used the force." Vision's highly over-rated anyway.

Re: Sharing todays gun accident so others don't

I almost did that last Thursday morning. I was in a hurry to get the truck loaded up and meet a friend at the range to try some loads I worked up for his rifle. My wife was getting into her car going to work and ask me some questions and had me put some stuff in her car. I got into my truck and when I started to back out of the drive way looking through the rear view mirror I saw that my tail gate was still down. When I got out to close it I noticed that I had forgot my ammo can with all my ammo in it.
