every shottist will meet every other shottist, best 2 out of 3 bouts to win. You just SAW a guy average 1.2 seconds, for 4 bouts, beating two guys, for a reaction, ccw belt draw, and hit of 10" gongs at 5 yds. You've never broken 1.50 seconds at such an exercise in your LIFE, and your average, under match stress is more like 1.80 seconds. Do you try fast hip shots, and HOPE you hit, or take your usual time, 1. 80 seconds, and PRAY that he misses, hmm? He can miss TWICE and still hit faster than 1.80 seconds, btw.
