The rules say this:
ANTICIPATION: The Competitor cannot move the gun in the holster after the shooting command “set” and before the start light comes on. Furthermore, any shot fired that is faster than the current World Record, must be backed up by 3 hundredths of a second before the round is over. If a competitor has not fired a shot within 3 hundredths of a second in the current round, an additional three attempts will be awarded. If the shot in question is not backed-up, then the shot will be considered “anticipated” and will result in a Procedural Penalty (PV), which is a Loss of Shot.So, this is big deal. Really. A new world record is always something to crow about. Below, a photo of the other competitors congratulating him.
If you'd like to try your own reaction time, I've found a neat little timer that you can use on your computer. CLICK HERE and try your reaction time. See if you can beat Master Gunfighter, then remember that he's not simply clicking a mouse. He's drawing, cocking, firing, and hitting. It's quite illuminating.
Congratulations, Master Gunfighter.
