    My goal is to get under five seconds in a 5x5 drill from the holster, so I will need a reliable, simple shot timer. Checking on shot timers, most look to be around $130. What shot timers have you used and liked?

    My pick is Competition Electronics. You can also get timer apps for your phone.

    CED7000 here too.
    If it's just for private use and you have an iphone, the Surefire app is pretty good.

    I'll put my 10,000 post in General Firearms since I love guns.

    Yes, I've had the CED7000 for a long time.

    The only problem I've had is I don't use it enough to remember how it works.

    I'll go with PACT. Had one for 25 years. Still going. The owner has been my friend for over 30 years.

    I saw the CED and PACT online and it looked good. Most recent post I found on GT was Oct 2015. Good to know that is still relevant. Thanks all.

    I have the PACT also...I got mine 20 years ago and it still works like new. FireGlock suggested I go with that, his name is Jerry from the Fla. gang he got me started in Glock sport shooting. Met him in ATL. Lots of the old timers will remember him.

    I have a CED. The rechargeable battery died on me, a couple of months ago. But you can replace them rather easily.

    If this fails, I will get a PACT, also.

    The CED is one of the easiest to set delays and par times or adjust sensitivity. Having a MENU button is so nice.

    I've been thinking about getting a shot timer too, but it would need nanoseconds :)

    Just got a Competition Electronics pocket pro a couple days ago to use for practice. The places I shoot at all use it. Plan on taking a Range Officer II class next month and that is the model they will be using for training. Figured I'd just go with the flow.
