What are you guys doing to be at your peak for Nationals?  With only 3 weeks left, its down to crunch time and I was curious how others prepare.

Doubling dry fire. Increase tight shots and distance for live fire. Working hard targets for entry. Really focusing on fundamentals.

Lots of fundamentals, working on tough shooting (far partials, SHO/WHO, etc), and healthy doses of dryfire. I also make sure to work a lot of "goofy" stuff during dryfire: into and out of prone, kneeling, etc.

 

I may modify slightly when the match book becomes available.

I'm not going to nationals this year (A2 instead), but I have shot several times. The above suggestions are good. Basically just keep doing what you are doing. It's not like running or cycling where there's a physical peak you can reach before going into a declining period, so it's basically just don't anything to screw it up.

I'm switching entirely to target-focus because Ben said to on his podcast.

Bring about 300 extra bucks and when you walk the stages the day before MAKE SURE you see the stage ROs and bribe them; only make sure they remember your name!!!
You might need a few more bucks on really tough stages to get that -2 or -3....if ya know what I mean.

3.  Shooting high power and long range

4.  Drinking a few beers

5.  Surfing the tits thread

6.  Buying my wife slutty new panties from VS

7.  Trying to decide if I'm done with USPSA after 30 years

Hurting my shoulder and not practicing at all? Does that count?

Went to the range today and shot my production gun for the first time in a year (since Idaho state last October). Felt good to get some practice in, the shoulder is feeling mostly better.

What's the nature of your shoulder injury?

I'm shooting real rifles in NC.

 

But then again, it's not like SHO or WHO means anything for me anyway...

Bought a bow, been shooting it a fair bit. Had it set at too high of poundage to start with, think I strained my bicep tendon. It was quite uncomfortable for the past few weeks.

Ibuprofen thrice daily and an icing regimen seemed to get it back under control though.
