Default Just out of curiosity.......

Am I the only one that preps the night before for a range day, or is this normal? ( I really hope others do. I don't want to admit that I'm this obsessed)

All depends on what you mean by prep...if you mean packing up your range bag, loading up the ammo cans and making sure all your gear is squared away, that's pretty normal...at least to me. Now if you engage in some some of pre-range meditation ritual or finger strengthening exercise and spiritual chanting...that's a bit weird.

So running around the house diving behind the couch and shooting targets with a rubber suction cup dart gun while blaring "The Eye Of The Tiger" is going a bit far?

Absolutely...the appropriate music is Kenny Loggins "Danger Zone."

Hey...hope you don't mind an off topic question but I heard an Inga Blanks (ssp) filling in for Marl levin tonight. She is from the Fresno area I believe; ever heard of her? I thought she did a really good job...she knows her stuff and is very entertaining.

Yes, I listen to her every so often. She does do a great show. I've heard rumors of her getting a national show.

Nope i do the same thing get all my gear set and ready to go, don't wanna end up the range with only half your ammo (has happened to a friend) or your PPE (personal Protective Equipment). Plus you wanna make sure all your firearms are in proper working order. Plus it's one more reason to mess with em

Gotta admit, I too check every firearm that I am taking to the range the night before, I pack my ammo and protective gear in the range bag.

I am burned out on the "Danger zone" theme song so I practice to Bullets in the gun by Toby Keith.

Nope I do the same.. I even clean them again before I go. Nothing wrong with a little Nerf gun battle with the wife and kid the night before. Although I practice proper trigger technique they both spray and pray.. Which means I catch quite a few darts to the head.
