Great idea on the timer.  Any competition with a timer gets at least some adrenaline going and if in a real situation fighting that adrenaline is paramount to winning the fight.

Agree. A timer can give us a sense of urgency and help us make progress more quickly in the training.
May the force be with you & me.

Thanks, guys - I've been doing this a long time, so I'm just grateful I can still see well enough as I age ;)

I did it again yesterday, rifle and pistol at 50 yards...not really encouraging. The only really good one was the "hostage" where I had about 1/2 inch to hit the "bad guy", and nailed the bad guy three times with the AR and irons. And of course, I failed to get a pic... ::)
My son did see some pictures on the phone and wanted to know why one target was down low - I said "that's the guy with the RPG - you have to hit him first." I got some of the photos on the drive at home, post tomorrow.
