World Shoot has 400ish slots
IDPA Says about 50% are going to international competitors
IDPA then says Internationals are random draw. So Random guy who shoots every match he can in his home country to get the points vs joe blow. Both have a equal chance of getting a slot.
As a US competitor you need to shoot level 2 and up matches to earn points, those with the most points win. but they are only letting in 200 us shooters.
Since World Shoot is basically the US Nationals. Why would they only allow 400 shooters. Last years nationals was 330ish people. They really thought that only 70 people from OCONUS would show up to this thing?
Not a news flash: Such a dumb sport.
Then when you go to register, you had to type in the number of points you have and a human had to go look at that at one point and approve it. You'd think with something like Practiscore(or even the IDPA website that keeps your stats) it would be super easy to see
