Including reaction time, to a hit on chest at 10 ft, it's 1.3 seconds or so for a good hand, as long as the safety is already disengaged (going from Right hand to left, that is). If safety's "on", likely to run over 2 seconds. If the guy's THAT close, and you need 2 full seconds, you'd better pray he's already severely wounded. :)

Changing guns rapidly takes frequent practice. Irregardless what style of handgun that you are shooting. Recent bragging post;

Shot Placement


I shot a handgun match this weekend and during one of the stages I was shown the results of good shot placement. The match organizer had his steel match organized as either a Cowboy Action match or a Speed match, I went Cowboy action. During one stage you had to engage 8 steel reactive targets, fastest time won. Starting with both my Vaqueros loaded and hands in the classic surrender position, I cleaned the stage in 11 seconds and change. What amazed me was that a close friend who years ago was on the Saskatchewan IPSC Gold Team who was shooting a Gov't Model in .45 w/ optical sights using 155 grain bullets took 20 plus seconds. He shot low and some targets took up to 4 hits to go down. Shot placement counts more than the type of firearm that your using.

Right on Garand. Shooting very rapidly but getting poor shot placement cpild get you killed when the targets are shooting back.
