I had been practicing my landing configns. After 1 landing, I took off to attempt a short field landing over an obstacle (both imaginary). Due to focusing on all of the event real and anticipated in this uncommon type of landing, my attention was focused on other matters (including real turbulence). During this sequence it appears, in hindsight, that I missed the flow of 1 important segment in my prelndg checklist. The landing was perfect in every other sense which helped to minimize damage. The landing gear warning horn never went off and the only clear realization of a problem was when the aircraft flared and drifted lower than usual and then made a short, straight slide to a full stop. The only other warnings I had were the fact that I felt somewhat distracted in general and an intuitive feeling just before the flight that all was not well.

THE LNDG GEAR WARNING HORN NEVER WENT OFF AND THE ONLY CLR REALIZATION OF A PROB WAS WHEN THE ACFT FLARED AND DRIFTED LOWER THAN USUAL AND THEN MADE A SHORT, STRAIGHT SLIDE TO A FULL STOP. THE ONLY OTHER WARNINGS I HAD WERE THE FACT THAT I FELT SOMEWHAT DISTRACTED IN GENERAL AND AN INTUITIVE FEELING JUST BEFORE THE FLT THAT ALL WAS NOT WELL.
