IPSC match load/unload sequence - newbie help

Newbie here....I'm trying to go through the entire shooting of a IPSC run in my mind. Semi-Auto pistol.

What I will do is try to type everything that is going to occur and I want my errors corrected.

1. Step in start Box

2. RO tells me to make ready...Now I'm not totally sure actually on this...Place 11 rd mag in gun and rack it. Stand at low-ready (if newbie) wait on RO commands

3. RO asks me if I understand course of fire

4. I nod yes....(I'm really lying)

5. RO says stand by

6. Buzzer go off

7. I shoot the run...reloading as necessary

8. Several minutes later (LOL) ...RO says time

9. I drop magazine from gun.. (put in pocket? or let it hit the ground?), rack slide and show clear...Show RO no rd in chamber. Pull trigger and re-holster.

10. Pick up mags that I dropped on ground on the way

Sorry for the stupid question...maybe a youtube clip would be good...Yours are too fast Cliff!

one thing you may want to remember is when you pull trigger at end after showing clear, always point down range at least 10 feet away from your feet. if there happens to be a AD if its within 10feet you will be DQ'ed from match.
Oh Yeah, don't "hot dog" and try to catch round upon clearing gun.
