I have not been shooting in about a year. I finally got my gear together, grabbed my M21, my Calico .22, some ammo and headed out the door. Got signed in, got my target set up and then "checked" my .308 ammo......that I should have checked A) when I got it a year ago, and B) today before I left for the range. I am sure you can guess, the bullet attracted a magnet and I was at ANGELES!!. What a dingbat!!. Luckily, I had 20 good rounds in my tool box of left-over south african!. Learn from dumb*****es like me, check your ammo before you leave for the range. Such a fool!.

Ouch luckily you had 20rounds of non magnetic ammo with you, otherwise you would had spend most of the day firing your .22

I'm pretty sure everyone has had one or two similar experiences. I left my bag with my ear pro and safety glasses, along with my targets and various range accessories at home one time. Lucky for me the range gave out free eye/ear pro with a lane rental, but it still just felt different without using my own gear.

A long time ago I arrived at the range and paid for the lane to find out I misplaced my keys for my lock. Good thing I was using those cheap luggage locks, and I was able to pick it after looking for it in the car and stressing out..... :). Was able to release all that tension :)

iareConfusE,

Just in case I lose brain matter too I now keep a set of ears and glasses in the trunk of my car all the time now. They may not be the exact same gear but it's better than borrowing material from the store. Just keep them in a nylon zipper bag so it looks very inocent to the public.;)

Nothing worse than getting stuck buying ammo at the range... x2 or x3 retail hurts.

I'm pretty good about the magnetic ammo issue, but there have been times that I didn't have the correct magazine to shoot a particular gun. My buddy has done it more than a few times so I will often bring a common magazine (glock, 1911, M1 enbloc clip, AR15, etc.) just in case.

At least you had a second gun to shoot. ;)
