FUN, BUT SAFETY FIRST
-Never clean, modify, disassemble, or otherwise touch your (presumably operating) gun before a match.
-Bring an extra everything, including shoes, holster, and belt, glasses, muffs, and gun. And three times the ammo you might need.
-No matter what is in your mind before, when given the signal to "START!" remember you're holding a real, loaded, gun.
-Think 'sight alignment trigger control'.
-And remember, accuracy takes precedence over speed.
