...during a GSSF compeition?
Yes, I'm new.
For me it is to minimize the distraction in my periferal vision.
I like as little distraction as possible ,but ifIm in the zone any distraction no mater how big dosnt bother me!
and if you're like me an it gets much farther away i can't hear it sometimes. when i RO i always try to hold it so the shooter can't see it. lot ofthem are set up with a delay after you hit the button, i don't like the delay. i prefer to count to 3 after i say stand by.
...so that deaf old guys like me can hear it!
The thing is an electronic timer. It is held close to your ear so that you can hear the start buzzer with ear protection in place. It also needs to be relatively close to your pistol to record the shot times and not be influenced by a pistol in another lane or bay.
I imagine if you would like them held in a different place if you would ask the RO he/she would be happy to comply IF it didn't interfere with the signal.
The timer behind the right ear also ensure that you can hear the buzzer. For some, it can be distracting. I always practice with a time (with a random delay), just to get used to starting at the sound of a buzzer. I've known others who are not used to starting at a buzzer panic and shoot way too fast.
It's a mind control device designed to make you shoot way too fast.
Thanks guys. I thought it was some sort of musical metronome that enables you to dance while shooting.
At Oakdale the RO said to me shooter ready . . . standby. And the other lanes buzzer sounded. My arms started to rise when my RO hit the buzzer. The two buzzers so close together really threw me off; at least that was my excuse. Of course I dont have an excuse for my performance on the other strings . . . anyhoo . . .
