How Fast Can You Clear a Texas Star?

Recommended Posts

At one of our recent matches the star was its own string in a stage, I managed 2.94 from the holster.  What's the fastest time you guys have done?

 

 

Here's some more Texas Star action with my 3" snubbie:

I can't remember then last time a Texas Star was first on a stage, so I'm not sure about time from a draw.

 

I suppose the best response I can give is: Only as fast as I can ambush it.

 

From last year:

I've seen it cleared in two shots. 

 

 

 

Though some might call it part luck, part range equipment malfunction. :D

A hit to the center of the star with a hot load from a shotgun does pose some advantages.

Like a lot of people, I have my good and my bad Texas Star encounters.  I have not specifically timed any of my Star clearing.  I have thought about buying one.

I am not good at them. There was an irish plate rack at the match on Sunday that took me longer to clear than I am proud of.

10 yards, from the draw, in idpa costume it takes me about 3.8 seconds.

3.8 at a steel challenge match last summer with my old Glock 21 and 180 PF reloads, never shot one before.

This is an old video but shows some of my better attempts at the Texas Star.
