IPSC champs already back in the 80's, both The Great One(Robbie Leatham) and Enos were able to post times as low as .11 second for repeat hits on the 10" vitals circle, from 10 yds distance. They could do so repeatedly and upon demand, using full power loads in 1911 .45's. Jerry Miculek can post times of .14 second for repeat hits, at 5 yds, using an L Frame Smith 357, with plus P 158 gr .38 ammo. If you can get on an electronic shooting timer, you owe it to yourself to do so and see just how far away you are from top performance. Why give an enemy an extra .20 second in which to shoot, club or stab you? You may need to hit him multiple times in the chest before he stops, so why have that "string-of- fire" take 2-3 seconds when the same thing can be done in 1.0-1.5 second, with a more controlable load/gun combo and a bit of practice?
