Timers - Which one?

Post by beeser on Wed Dec 03, 2014 7:32 pm

I'm about to begin timing strings for timed and rapid fire.  What features are beneficial?  Which one do you recommend?

No turning targets on my local range, so I use an iPhone app called Bullseye Range Commands.  Plays directly into my electronic muffs.  You may be better off working against the actual target times than using a timer to measure your own strings.

Range commands fed directly into electronic ear muffs, now that's a good idea.  For now I just want something to time my own strings for practice.  Maybe a timer [url=http://www.larrysguns.com/Products/PRESTO-DIGITAL-TIMER__PRESTO04213.aspx]like this[/url] is a good start.  I'm thinking that something that sits on the bench is better than something hand held.

I like the app also. It lets you practice your process (breathing, raising the gun, getting the first shot off, etc.) as well as get the timing down.

The App with commands is really helpful. Since it starts with load and goes through the whole process, it gets the shooter used to the commands and helps with process. It also allows you to focus fully on what you are doing rather than worrying about how much time you have used.

yup phone in pocket with headphone either under the ear guard or some of the active electronic ear guards have a jack to plumb the audio right in
