Shot Timer... Which one should I get?
I'm at the point in my training (just getting started really) that I would like to quantify some of my tactics (draw from concealment/time to first shot, reloads, etc). The only way I know to get better at something is to start at the beginning, record my results and work from that data. I'm not so focused on being lightning quick but I do want to adhere to the 'smooth is fast' mantra.
All that being said, I've done a little research and have narrowed my search down to two units:
Competition Electronics' Pocket Pro II and the CED 7000. The money is about the same and both units have their pros and cons so I'm looking for hands-on reviews/opinions about these timers.
Big question: if you have one of these timers, would you buy it again?
Thanks for your help and input!
I've used the Shooting Chrony
the CE model and the PAST, and I see no diff, really. The Chrony one had a less distinctive start "beep", but I need electronic ear muffs to hear any of them, really. the Chrony, last I checked, was $50 cheaper and did the same things. I was unaware that a smart phone could be a timer. How do you start it, can it be hooked up to stop when a bullet hits an impact plate, or is it simply sound activated? At public ranges, the latter method doesn't work, because other shooter's noise is always being recorded.
