I don't seem to make the dumb LF mistakes *too* often, and I credit a habitual and redundant workflow. For instance, I dry-fire before every shot, which makes it a lot more difficult to leave the preview lever open by the time I pull the darkslide, and gives me another chance or two to remember to stop down. It doesn't mean I never blow it, of course, but I think it helps to reduce the frustration. Just work out an order of operations and treat it like the pre-flight checklist.
