I make it between 0.5 and 0.6 seconds from the beeper to the first shot--give or take a tenth. Maybe Brian can give us a more precise figure using his video editing software.

Based on where he first has the gun out of the holster, it appears that if he had started with his hand on the gun and the gun out of the holster, his time from the beeper to the first shot would have been between 0.3 and 0.4 seconds, maybe a little faster.

Nope, hands at sides, standard USPSA start position.

Well, it's not a legal USPSA classifier stage, because it's done on steel, not a scored target, but still blazing. He's pushing .13 splits.

It is very fast indeed.

6 shots with 0.13 splits would be 0.65 seconds from the first shot to the last shot. A total time of 1.11 seconds (from the video) would indicate that his first shot came at about 0.46 seconds after the buzzer. Looks like the estimate in my first post was close--just a hair on the high side.

So if he can react from the buzzer, draw and shoot his first shot in less than half a second, it seems a given that IF he were to run the drill again starting with his gun already in his hand and out of the holster, he could get his first shot on target in well under 0.4 seconds.

Ed McGivvern did some fast and fancy shooting long ago.I've enjoyed what Jerry Miculek does.

So you found a vid of someone else shooting real fast.Thats nice.He is real fast.

Obviously,this is in response to kraig's post.

Someone has a very narrow focus on games.Everything is measured by "The Game" everything is compared to "The Game"

And some folks just don't care about games.

I'm all in favor of Real Life Dangerous Women.

And I appreciate the efforts of a Gentleman who helps them better than anyone else they are likely to come across in a small town in Out Yonder Wyo.

The only explanation for this is that God is on his side....

I don't think God, if he takes any sides, could be against defenseless cardboard cutouts.

That aside, holy crap that guy is fast!

I believe that comes out to ~540 rounds per minute, almost 1/2 the burst rate of a Glock 18, and close to the full auto 600 rpm of many full autos.

But the skill was impressive.
Thanks for the link.

I don't want to know how many rounds he sent down range practicing that "close retention" shooting. That has always been a real problem shot for me. Easy to limp wrist, easy to have the slide recoil into something and cause a malfunction, etc.

He actually has another training video on it I enjoyed:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7oVV2Awjfj4
He does a better job instructing than most I see. He is organized and reasonably eloquent.

The speed of a serious shooter, whether an instructor, competitive shooter, or, I dare say, an "operator", is entirely different than the speed of a new shooter taking classes once or twice a month for half a year. An instructor, who can get an inexperienced shooter on target in a little under half a second following 12 or so large group lessons, has nothing to be ashamed of IMO.

Ask someone who works in a packaging plant or shipping department if that cardboard is defenseless!

The shooter in the original posters you tube link is my shooting buddy Kelly. I shoot with him almost every weekend. He was a little younger in that video, but he is still plenty fast and accurate. A very good competitive shooter and a heck of a nice guy. A better ambassador for the shooting sports you couldn't find.
