I can't help but notice that nats starts in only 2 days, and there is essentially zero conversation about it. So here is a thread to talk about all things nats. Currently waiting for my lovely redeye flight at the Redmond airport. Arrive in Orlando at a lovely 5:40 Friday morning. Shooting open and production. Squad 125 and 211.

Why is that? I know the weather can be shit but looks like it’s sunny this week.

Agreed, I’m not even shooting Nats and I’m excited for it. Having them all at the same time makes it interesting. My guess is there’s no central place to talk about it anymore since this place is all but dead.

Arrived. That flight was positively brutal though. Normally I can sleep on airplanes, but not so much on this one. Makes for a very long night. Me and several of my buddies will be out walking stages today, range opens at noon from what I understand. Come say hi.

I'm irked as to the way the matchbook was handled this year, particularly compared to last year's Iron Sight Nationals.

See you on squad 211 for the Production match.

Someday I'll go to florida for nats, but that year is not this one. We're driving to A2 instead for 1/3 the amount of money. Probably less than that, actually.

 

Good luck, Ryan. You've had some great results this year, so I'm looking forward to seeing what you can do. Especially in production....

Just you wait and see....I’m calling my shot on:
1. Someone, name well recognized, will go sub-minor at chronic and then the shenanigans will start.
2. A well know shooter will DQ.
3. A nationally known shooter will have their shit not show up and have to borrow someone else’s.
4. Production will come down to the last stage.
5. Some ate up RSO will get tuned up by the Beatd and DNROi.

Tilley is on Instagram saying USPSA is not allowing him (or Supergrandchamp) to video at nats.

Tilley not being able to film is total BS. I want as much video from this as possible. I don’t understand that decision at all from Foley.

You'd think they'd want exposure...
The Supergrandchamp Instagram may be ridiculous, but the video reviews are well done and interesting.
