    I'm looking for a shot timer for training. I don't shoot competition (yet). It looks like the Pocket Pro Timer II is pretty popular. Does anyone have feedback on that model or any other model around that price range? Thanks!

    Pocket Pro 2 is what I currently use. The PP1 is also good. I prefer it over the Pact Club timer because it’s too easy to hold the Pact in a way that muffles the microphone. But any of those 3 are sort of the “standard” timers that USPSA clubs use, and for good reason. They work very well. Any of them will serve pretty much any shooter’s needs.

    I prefer the Pact, clip it on the belt, random start. Big button I don’t have to look to find. Everything I want to know is on the screen as I glance down.

    Thanks for the feedback. It looks like I can't go wrong either way.

    CED 7000 is very compact and capable. Been using mine for training and competition for nearly 10 years now.

    I don't know about the others but with the PACT it shows both first and last shot times on same screen. (Unless you have it in PAR mode.). For practicing plates, just one glance tells me all I need to know without pressing any buttons.

    I bought the CED 7000 for its memory.
    Shoot a drill up to ten times and review your times.
    Small and fiddly, though.

    I like the memory capability but I got rid of my 7000. The buzzer is right in the frequency of my tinnitus, being the largest negative. I also didn’t like the fact that I had to lift my polarized glasses to read the display. The last straw was the battery, if it’s dead, it’s dead. You can’t pop in a new 9v and go, it must be recharged.

    I like the 8000 though, the big board display is nice running racks and such too. It also has ports so you can activate things at the start signal but I haven’t used that feature in awhile.

    The R-U-Ready timer is one I seldom use but the absolute best for catching suppressed stuff and ranges that have bad echos.

    As above the last model Pact is my go to shot count, first shot, last split and total time without hitting an extra button. The first gen wasn’t very loud but the current ones are so loud I stick a foam ear plug in the hole when I am part time practicing (no live ammo) in the house.

    I used a buddy's Pocket Pro II the other day. It worked just fine for me. I ordered one yesterday. If it doesn't perform well next weekend, the PACT it is. :D

    I'll second this. Everything here is spot on. I really like mine.

    I’ve used all the above (and owned all but one)

    My preference for training is the ced. I like a rechargeable battery.
    My pref for matches is the pact. It’s more idiot proof.
