As a Non-Profit organization, USPSA is sponsor driven. A big part of a successful match is due to the contributions, time and money generously donated to the sport by these companies. Prizes, amenities and match funds are all necessary to ensure that competitors have a great time at Nationals. Please take a moment to visit their websites and when you're shopping, patronize these businesses as a sign of support for those who so graciously support us.

USPSA adheres to a strict policy for distribution of slots to its national championships. This policy is reviewed and voted on by the board of directors before implementation. To download and view a copy of the policy, click Here [pdf]
Lucky enough to get a slot? Signing up for the Multi-Gun? Here are some things you can do to help make registration go a little more smoothly:
Be sure to note the return deadline on your slot and get in before then. If you don't, it will be voided and reissued to someone on the waiting list. After that point we absolutely cannot get it back for you and you'll need to sign up on the wait list yourself and hope for the best. So be SURE to check that date and return it in a timely fashion.
Slots are numbered and tracked. Shooter Joe is issued slot number 001 and if it comes back filled out by Shooter Bob, this is going to throw up a big red flag in our system. Earned slots cannot be transferred or traded, under any circumstances. If it turns out you're unable to attend, please send the slot back with a note saying you can't make it and we'll reissue to someone on the waiting list, but you can't just give it to your buddy who would really like to go in your place.
Because the slots are numbered and assigned to individuals, it's important that families with multiple slot winners take care not to mix up their slots. We send them out in separate envelopes for this purpose. It causes a lot of confusion around here when Mrs. Shooter sends in the slot we assigned to Mr. Shooter and vice versa.
Write clearly and legibly on your entry form/slot. Messy writing can lead to you being signed up in the wrong division, class or category. We also mail you various correspondence such as confirmation packets, match updates, etc once we receive your slot, so it's important we get your address right.
Be sure to fill in all fields. If you're not sure of something, such as class or what division you belong in, give us a call and we'll help you out. Don't forget to include your current and correct member number, your complete mailing address, a good way to contact you via phone or email, etc. All this information is important to the registration process.
If you are making a squad request, please be sure to include both first and last names of those you wish to be squadded with. Correct spelling helps a lot, too. If we can't figure out who you're talking about, you may not end up squadded where you want to be.
Double check your payment. Did you include payment with the entry form? Did you send in the correct amount? Is your check signed?
All of these things will help ensure that you'll get the most out of your Nationals experience.
Thanks for your cooperation and participation!
