to react, draw 1911, hit 15"x24" metal silohuette, with primer powered ,45 wax ammo. This was 1977, at the first match that I put on. We shot the Advanced military Combat Course. Mas used a hand hover start, got it down to 1.10 seconds, for his reaction, draw and hit, and was HAPPY. I stood there with an IWB rig, FBI,and turned in sub .70 second times, and he was aghast. Then I put on the speed rig, and turned in sub .55 second times. I use hands at sides start, too. using hand hover, I turned in sub .40 second times. lots of people THINK that they're fast, when in actuality, they aint crap for speed.
