Can someone describe to me the different types of timers used to time your shots .
What do you consider to be quality brands?What are some of the options included in the different timers.
How much should I pay?

Have been using a Pact Mk 4 for years. Functions as a chrony as well as a very good timer. Worth the price.
Go to a Fallout Shelter, then turn on the radio.

Another Happy MK iv user here. I was kind of leery, due to the high price but it beats everything out there for usage. It's programmable for dryfiring, and range practice. Has a Chrony and ballistics computer built-in. It is a extremely multipurpose tool!!

PS At many of the matches another brand of timer will break/not work so I whip my MK iv out so we can keep shooting and not fuss with a cheap timer.

Currently, I use a CED 6000. I am very happy with it. The Pocket Pro is cheaper, and is also very good.

I am also happy with my CED.
You know the rest. In the books you have read
How the British Regulars fired and fled,
How the farmers gave them ball for ball,
From behind each fence and farmyard wall,
Chasing the redcoats down the lane,
Then crossing the fields to emerge again
Under the trees at the turn of the road,
And only pausing to fire and load.

The pocket pro is the simple one to use and most used at matches. Standard price is $129.
