gun range method

Question when you go to the Gun Range and bring differant caliber weapons, Do you start lowest to highest caliber or vise versa?

I go out in the woods. I usually shoot whatever one I've been itching to shoot the most though. If all that I've been thinking about is my AR, then I shoot it first. If I've been wanting to work on my draw and 2 to the chest 1 to the head thing then I do that first. There may be a reason to do it in a certain order but I just go with whatever I want to do first.

ok

the reason I ask is cause I've been starting out low. .38 and work my way up to the .45.But it seems my aim goes lower as i move up.

I usually work waaaay too much, so it is a long time between visits to the range. I get a lot of stress relief by going out to the desert and rapid firing the Ruger 10/22, or the Rem 1100
I will normally start with the one that I figure will keep me tuned up for home and personal defense and go from there.
p.s. there are rules at a range that aren't out in the desert. Like 12 rds as fast as I can pull the bang button.

Don't get me started about the dumbass rules of Caleefornya. The parks GESTAPO is starting to close down all the areas I go to as well. If I could I'd be in a different state.

I like to start rifles from a distance and as the day goes on I move closer to the targets for pistol and shotgun drills. I tend to shake more after slugs and buck shot so I leave it for last.

My starting lineup

Before getting out of my car, I swap ammo in my carry gun from defense load to practice ammo, so as soon as I set up a target, I draw and fire a few strings with no warmup. Once that's done, the carry gun gets reloaded with defense ammo and then I move on to my longarm. I put my reactive targets (water jugs, steel targets, neighborhood kids, etc..) at varying ranges and engage in whatever order I decide. My order of shooting is chaotic, so don't pay any attention to me. I suck.
