$150 chronograph, all worried about 200 fps

diff in a hunting rifle load, but being 1 FULL second slower on the ccw draw, that can't matter, right? Just ask George Z if it can matter or not. :-) 1/4 second can be life and death, easily! and becoming truly fast on the draw is FUN that you can have in garage, yd, attic, basement, storage unit, for almost nothing with airsoft. $150 timer. $150 airsoft. Or load wax ammo for a real gun. That's how I learned, but it's 3c per shot, stinks, makes a mess and there's no rapidfire potential with autos. you also can't load more than about 100 rds an hour. so wax practice sucks, as compared to airsoft practice. The primers back out of the wax loads and .38 and 9mm wax aint worth a hoot, cause of the small pistol primer. You have to shorten .38 cases to 9mm length, so a lot of the primer's force is not wasted on empty space and you have to drill out the flashholes, so the primers wont move, tying up the revolver when you try to rapidfire it.
