    Lawn mower ate my Chrorngraph

    Stuff happens. It is time for a new chronograph. I can't justify the cost for a Labradar. What is a good reliable make for under $200? I don't need the printer function.

    I have a CHRONY which suits me fine. Cost $100.
    To paraphrase Ronald Reagan, the trouble with many shooting experts is not that they're ignorant; its just that they know so much that isn't so.

    How fast was the lawn mower going?

    Dog ate my homework? there is a mod for the Chrony so it's controlled by a push button from the bench.
    Whatever!

    Caldwell ballistic chronograph is pretty good and not expensive. I've had mine 3 years and its still working fine. Not very fancy, but it does come with an app and a connector cord so that you can download the data to a smart phone. I really don't think it would qualify as top of the line, but it does the job.

    Ya looking for a Crony, contact me off list. I got one full up, all the pieces/parts including LED illumination we can talk about. Don't use it and it's collecting dust. Bought a LabRadar. No need for the Chrony.

    Too bad they don’t work on pistols alos.

    I did not shoot my chrony - after about 23 years of regular service a photocell quit so I just replaced it. Pretty good service for something that cost 83 dollars all those years ago. They aren't real fancy but the master models do more than I need.

    competition electronics pro chrony digital. simple to use, easy to read at 10 feet,no bling,and consistent readings shots after shots. great device for a little more than 100$.

    Gas check took out one of mine also, boolit on the second ,which I think was a subconscious desire to get rid of it.

    CE Pro Chrono for me. If you ever do shoot it, they won't make you pay more than 1/2 price to get it working again
    Don't ask me how I know.
