Timer to Test Yourself

  • Timers I use and Want
  • Distances and Thoughts
    • Point Blank: 3 yards and in – Hits on target and how fast can you go
    • Short Distances: 3-7 Yards – Cadence becomes what’s important to make hits
    • Intermediate Distances: 7-20 Yards – Front sight focus or seeing th sights where they need to be
    • Long Distances: 20-100 Yards – I still use interrupted trigger control. I want to be able to sweep through the trigger
    • Extreme Distances: 100-300 Yards – Need reset and master the bigginner trigger
