Labradar doppler chronograph

I picked up one of the and love it.

http://mylabradar.com/



I tried it out in a dim indoor range. The girlfriend was shooting in the stall beside me. It never picked up any of her shots and picked up all of my shots as long as I did not rapid fire (more than 1 sec between shots). it is powered by AA batteries but also uses any USB battery pack. Gives you speed and velocity at 5 different ranges you choose and you don't have to shoot through an opening (one missed shot and you need another chronograph, the death of my last one). Just aim it at the target and tell it how far to the side it is. very easy to use menu system.

Overall an awesome product.

I agree.
Couldn't stand it anymore and ordered one last spring...my first chrony.
I learned a lot about my handloads and developed a new 1000 yard .308 load for my precision rifle.
I saw them on sale for the first time around Thanksgiving and 50 bucks off.

A customer donated one to our range in Idaho.
Super nice, very slick.

Heard nothing but good things about them. Only negative is the need for a battery pack or outdoor outlet. The AAA's don't last to long, so they say. Unfortunately for me, I bought a Caldwell Ballistic G2 for half price before the LabRadar units went on sale. But, when the G2 dies, the LabRadar is coming home.

The rechargable USB battery packs are excellent when used in conjunction with the Labradar unit, and not too expensive.
