Feedback is valuable. At the range, we check targets and inspect our firearms, optics and ammunition. The goal is to always improve, and to accomplish that every shooter needs to make a shot timer part of their range bag.

Shot timers detect gun shots, and good timers will tell us the time from the first beep to each subsequent shot to a degree of accuracy within 1/100th of a second.

PACT makes their own buzzer that is as loud as the government will allow a low-frequency buzzer to be.

Besides the time recorded between start and finish, timers will also offer information such as splits. Split times, i.e., the time between shots, are helpful in determining consistency. Improving consistency will help eliminate many errors.
