Dgui, Amazing speed and accuracy!!! You must be the fastest draw in the west....east, north, south and everywhere in between!!!
I think the fasted I can load and shoot is two seconds (and I couldn't even hit anything)....


Jake, and awesome job on the timing! That looked like it would take some work and "know how"!

That's pretty durn fast, Darrell. Not many predators move that fast, let alone prey species. I think the Mantis Shrimp is about the fastest out there strike wise.
But I've seen a stonefish eat a mantis shrimp and that happened so fast I thought I was mistaken. He was there and then he wasn't. All I saw was the "rock" twitch slightly.
Keep going 'til you have to change your name to dblurr.

i think you set the bar so high no one else is even giving fast draw a try. well done

(it's two tenths not two hundreds- but if it was possible you'd be the man to do it)
Thanks for pointing this out and now I will have to make a change on the title. .20 the two numbers do occupy the hundredths place but are actually 2 tenths. If I understand this correctly. If this is so I should have already known this.
Thank you.

Instructions

  1. How To Read A Digital Stopwatch
    • 1


      Look at the numbers that appear on the stop watch to the left of this step. The first numbers you see on the watch before the ":" are the minutes used. In the case of our included picture, 3 minutes have passed.
    • 2

      Look at the first set of numbers after the ":". Those are the seconds. Our picture shows that 53 seconds have passed.

    • 3

      Look at the last set of smaller number; these are the further numbers to the right. These numbers signify the hundredths of seconds; in this case, 17 hundredths of a second have passed.
    • 4

      Place all of the number together to see your whole time. The stop watch above shows 3 minutes 53 seconds and 17 hundredths of a second.
    • 5

      Check if your stop watch also offers "Laps". In this case, you will typically see each lap or the most current lap displayed along with a "Total Time" option at the bottom of the display. You will read these numbers in the same manner as a regular non-lap stop watch.

      Ok, so after reading this how to read a stop watch then the .20 should be read as 20 hundredths of a second .20 hundredths of a second. I would like to get this right and not make any claims more than that of what it is.

      What think ye?

you are right.

20/100 (20 hundredths) of 1 second -- in fraction it is the same as 2/10 (2 tenths) or even 1/5 (one fifth)

in decimal it would be ".20" (point twenty of a second) which again is the the same as ".2" (point two of a second)
