Low ready draw time



Log in to see fewer ads
I have never started a steel challenge stage at low ready. I shoot carry optics in local steel challenge matches and I'm thinking of also shooting rimfire rifle open. What is a good low ready draw time. I know the GMs will be much faster than the Bs, but what is a good median time to set as a goal? Thanks.

fastlane... not an answer to your question, but I've done some research as to reaction times... as a former classroom science teacher I had a pool of 14-15 year old lab rats for over 25 years... one lab I did was to drop tennis balls off the school stadium to determine gravity rates, and one of the problems was getting the student dropping the balls to release as those timing the fall started the stop watch... so in preparation, I had them drop meter sticks, and work the reaction time from the distance they caught the stick at (d=1/2 a(t2))... what we came up with

left handed students.... ~ .12s
right handed, but left eye dominant , ~ .15s
right handed, interlace your fingers, and cross your thumbs, with left thumb on top, ~.18s
right handed, dominant right eye , ~ .21s


over the 35 years I shot USPSA and 3 gun, I had an opportunity to talk to a lot of World Class shooters... the preponderance were right handed with dominant left eye...

Since no one is has an answer, let me rephrase the question. What is your low ready draw time?

fastlane... I'm 73 (B class 70.39 percent RFRO) and have a .20s + reaction time... a first shot hit on Smoke and Hope around .55s is the best I can do... closer to .95s on smaller, more distant, first plate

regards Les

Thanks, Les. That is helpful. I typically shoot Carry Optics so have always drawn from surrender. I just bought a RFRO gun. I haven't taken it to the range yet, but was wondering what the difference in draw time would be.

It takes me anywhere from a couple of minutes to an hour to draw my RFRO depending on the level of detail and whether or not the drawing is color or just a line drawing.

For RFRO first shot times under .40s to be competitive on Smoke and Hope, low .60's on most of the other stages.

Hah. I'm new to the Division. Thanks for the clarification and the first shot time.

I'm a B shooter (RFRO) and am in the .50-.80 range, depending on the size/distance of the first plate.
