Yes I do start with my hand on the gun, I too usually have my hands in my pockets anyway. The timer I use has random start times as well. I should have included that in the OP. I should also mention that I practiced a couple hundred times with a "dry" gun first for safety.
Kraigwy: It looks like we are practicing almost exactly the same. My best time so far was .65, thanks for posting a time so I have something to compare it too. Are you able to average under a half second?
