I’m interested in going to the HiCap Nationals in September. Any suggestions?

Anyone else going?

If you didn't get an invite from USPSA on Feb 22nd or a slot from a local club you will have to wait until they open it up to the public.

Last year when registration opened for the public if you didn't get through the registration on Practiscore within a few minutes you didn't get into the match. I think a buddy of mine that tried said it sold out in like 10 minutes. I fear this year will be worse the way they have the break down of the matches. There are a lot of people that will want to shoot both Hi-Cap Nationals and with the Low-Cap Nationals being in November it means you are going to be competing with a lot of people to get in.

I missed a guaranteed spot from USPSA by 1 place in our Section Championship and 2 places from our Area Championship but it sounds like I may be getting one for winning our CO Points Series. Haven't heard from our Section Coordinator yet so I'm not holding my breath.

I may be battling it out with the commoners when it goes live to the public.

If I get in I'll be at Hi-Cap CO/Limited

ETA: Just found it. Registration opens to the public on June 1. No mention of time though.

Thanks! Our state has a whopping 10 slots for HICAP Limited with 3 for our club. 2 for L10, so my odds are low. I’m a long way from winning my way in with my shooting. Hahaha.

Limited division slots were available for quite a while last year. Maybe open or production filled up quick, but I know I was looking at available limited slots weeks after open registration began.

Just received my slot to HiCap Nationals from the MN Section today for my Points Series win in CO.

Looks like I'm headed out West this fall to shoot in the dirt. That range is by far the dirtiest place I have ever shot in my life but they put on a good match.

I could do without all the ricocheting rounds though. It is a little unnerving at times having rounds whizzing over your head.

Sweet! I hope to make it myself.

That red rock makes a mess.

I just did a class out at that range, and while the dirt may be a mess, we had mud that was a huge pain to deal with every morning. It seemed to dry up reasonably by the afternoon, but that stuff would pull a shoe if you were not careful. And mag cleaning was an absolute any time one hit the ground.

Good luck. Hopefully you make it in. There is nothing more humbling than shooting a Nationals and seeing where you are lacking and how you stack up against some of the best in the country. This will be my 4th Nationals and I'm not getting any younger so I'll take the slots when I get them.

I've only been to a match there once and it was so dry out there two years ago when I was there that it would be hard to imagine that ground could ever be soft. The dust in the afternoon was crazy. Cleaning mags after every stage was a must because the dust is so fine and guns covered between stages was a must.

WildSig,

Yeah the weather was crazy. We started with highs in the high 20's, then had more snow in a day than they average in a year, and then I had a sunburn on the last 2 days of the class. The snow and the thaw, and 15 people tramping around stirred it up pretty well. I heard from some other students that were there in Sept and it was well over 100 and brutal. Need to find the sweet spot for the next class !

I was at TPC in Sept in the 100* heat. Wiping my hands in the dust to try and dry them off. A towel wasn’t doing it.

Picked up a slot for, lots more practice to do now. I’m just about to break into B class in Limited. I need to be more consistent.
