That fraction of a second difference in split times may not look like much at first glance. But in a 100 round match, with all paper targets that require two scoring hits, there will be 50 splits. The shooter running .30 second DT splits will spend .15 seconds of their score achieving them. A shooter using all CP splits (with a .60 average time) will be spending around .30 seconds to achieve their second hit. That .15-second difference is huge in the final standings! And a clear advantage to the Double Tap.

I guess Ben said it best when he said "you cant teach what you don't know". 

 

Guy just doesn't realize you can see those bumps on the gun at DT speeds. Especially at the speed he has them listed.

I think we can safely say that the shooter running .30 splits and the one running .60 splits will not be all that far apart in the match results.

Yeah, last place and the guy that just beat last place.

For experienced shooters the split times on CPs will run from .45 to .80 seconds during the course of a match with varying target distances. An average split time of .60 seconds is realistic.

Let's see how those DTs and CPs work out for him in the real world when someone is screaming half of eight at him in the food court.

How does the DT compare to the CP when juggling coffee and cinnabuns?

Unsighted followups (double taps) "out to 12 or 15 yards with practice?"

How many of you fine ladies make a habit of firing a completely unsighted second shot at 15 yards (at a blistering .30 cadence, nonetheless) and find yourselves rewarded with good hits?
I won an IDPA match once. It was neat.

Alternatively if you don't stumble over yourself like a retard at a match that's 5 seconds saved already.

I don't think he even did that.  Waktasz, seven seconds of google-fu says you've have a run-in with this dipshit before, yes?

Might not be the same guy, the USPSA number listed there says he was terrible and stopped shooting USPSA back in the mid-nineties.

what a complete poser moron, and an annoying jackass to boot.

 

After reading a bit of that old thread, I thought maybe I had posted in it. Sure enough, even as a noob with 1 year of uspsa under my belt I knew that guy was a moron.
