2021 Timer questions


Recommended Posts

As mentioned above care had to be taken once the shooter was finished to not register any more noises giving a false indication of the final shot.  Noting the time of the final shot mitigated any questions if the timer did advance for whatever reason.

 

@Boomstick303 as it mentioned before, you can stop timer from listening by pressing M or the arrow buttons on the timer.

 

I also fixed stopping timer from the PractiScore app in the last Android app release. The long tap on the timer menu on the scoring screen opens start/stop/settings menu.


And also you can take out some of the accidental shots/noises from the shot list in the app without manually re-entering time you noted on the timer screen. In the Android app you tap on the "Time" or "String x" label to open the shots view popup. The long tap opens a history of downloaded strings (about 20 last ones), e.g. in case you wanted to restore overwritten time or swap time between stages that were shot back to back.

 

You can find the manual at https://community.practiscore.com/t/bluetooth-timers-supported-in-the-practiscore-app-for-android/208#:~:text=You can review received shots

The current stage time is shown in bold, usually it’s the last shot. But you can tap on the time to select another shot to be used for stage results. You can also use long tap to delete shot from the list (e.g. when it is obviously look as an echo).

 

You can also use long-tap on the same time field label to open string history. In case stage time was accidentally overwritten, then tapping on one of the strings will copy string data into the current score.

This is fine, but I had a PCC shooter just the other day inexplicably take a shot 5-7 seconds after giving him the "if you are finished unload and show clear."  While I like the functionality of locking the timer after the "last shot", I prefer to hold the timer behind my back to give the score keeper the time after giving that command.  The AMG with the sensitivity dialed up with the timer positioned behind you back and the mic pointed away from the shooter does not pick up noises from the unloading process but would pick up a shot from a PCC in most instances. 

 

I believe there is a lot of ills this timer fixes when it comes to shot timers and has covered most of the issues a lot of people want to see in a timer, but you will never please all or the people all of the time.

Thank you for letting me know about this functionality.  In the short term not sure how useful it is but if a club were starting to use these as their primary timers, the staff should become well versed in how to do this.  It would save a few reshoots along the way.  It would be a matter of training and proficiency at that point.  

 

I personally have not had a lot of time with my AMG timer but I intend to change that over the next couple of months.

AMG labs hands down. 

They just need to produce more timers. Inexplainable how they have the best product but cant make timers. 
Also belt clip. Bought one cheesy molded kydex thing off a guy online (florida I think) for 25 bucks and its done alright 

 

Given my experience with the pocket pro, the ced 7k and the pact timer. I'd buy the AMG again anyday of the week. And that includes waiting for it to show up

Anyone actually get an AMG Commander this year?

 

I gave them money 4 months ago and haven't heard a peep.

I ordered mine last year. I actually forgot that I ordered it, then after (at least) a few months, I received an email that it had shipped. Patience is the name of the game in this sport.
