Not to be dense, but I'm not getting this.

It seems to suggest that a successful shot from a field position relies on timing the shot, rather than accepting one's wobble and having good followthrough. AFAIK, timing the shot is a pretty futile endeavor. To that end, seems to me that lock time ought not be an issue, even when position shooting. I understand this may be an area where theory and reality clash, though.
