    Rituals and warm-ups

    What do you do to warm up before you head to a match in the morning? In my case, I shoot IDPA and USPSA, with occasional other disciplines, but Id be interested in hearing from people with a variety of backgrounds. Im looking to add to my mornings in a time-efficient manner.

    I do (give or take)

    10 holster presentations

    10 presentations with one dry fire per rep

    10 reloads with partially filled mag retained (IDPA only)

    10 more presentations with dry fire

    I use inert bluegun mags and snap caps, when appropriate.

    -I drag myself out of bed with 3.5 hours of sleep added to the battery.

    -Enjoy a tasty bowl of Lucky Charms. Chug a coffee and throw in a fat dip to fast track the ol' guts operation to provide an at home release instead of running stages w/clinched cheeks.

    -Dry fire a handful of times at house while dip and coffee are doing their thing.

    -Get to range, holster up and get a few more dry fires maybe take a few shots. Meet and greet around, look over my squad list, try to remember the name of the person talking to me who I've met several times, think "Please don't be on my squad" while overhearing a loud mouth Tactical Timmy, listen to safety brief, go to start stage, ask "Who wants to go first?" with no response, shoot first to show it's not scary, rinse and freaking repeat.

    A good poop is critical.
