    My chrono just came in a lil while ago, set on the porch by the mail man. The premium kit, complete with gold tripod they show in the adds, IR LED lights with battery pack & wall wort, sunscreens, etc. All in a nice carrying case! Wanna hit the range tomorrow & start collecting data for my ODNR report March fourth. I just hope range will let me use it, & film everything. Have to see if I can borrow son’s android phone, or whatever it’s called. I have to buy that yet as well. Here’s a couple pics…

    ​First up, the Crosman 160 .22, then the Hatsan Striker 1000x .22. I’ll have to chrony the Winchester 1400cs next week.

    You should be happy with it, I have the same exact one and it works great for what I do. I was very happy I got it with the I.R. lights, its pretty picky about brightness with out them. But with then it can be dark anuff to need a flashlight to see the screen and still pick up the rounds.

    I really like mine too! Recently, it stopped talking to my phone. I’ll have to get that sorted out but, it still works better than the Blue chrono that I used to have. The premium kit is definitely the way to go with this. 

    Tip: I got a piece of 2″ sticky back velcro and used it to place the IR light battery pack on the backside of the unit. Now, I don’t have it hanging or balancing on anything and I can tell which end is the front easier.

    I was thinking about what to do with the battery pack at the range? Glad to hear I made a good choice. Wanna try to get my son to take me to the range today. Got a ton of equipment to lug out there. 2-gun case, range bag, chrono bag, camera & tripod in range bag. And get some pasteboard to stick the shoot-n-c targets on. It’d be great to finally get some shootin’ time today! But also have 1-hour orientation video first time as well.

    Make sure the rods are fully pushed up into the lights.  It looks like one side of the front one is not.  Also, to get the most accurate reading, make sure the lights are spaced at exactly 12″ (sometimes they spread in or out a little at the tops).

    Thanks. I’ll have to keep that in mind. Couldn’t get an open lane yesterday. So I’ll try again tomorrow at lunch time.

    Tom, what distance have you been setting up from the end of your barrel? I have been using 36 inches but get err more then I like. Don’t know if it’s light or distance. Thanks

    I didn’t think to get a pic of the set up I used in my man cave to get some numbers, but after getting everything level, including stacking my BR bags to hold rifles level, it worked great with the IR LED’s. I had it about 1-2 feet or so from the end of each barrel, depending on the length of the rifle & my small man cave. I’m glad I bought the deluxe kit!

    Here’s my latest video with the unit in use. Worked great after I got everything set up right. Also first successful test of the Crosman 160 with new Archer gas valve.
