Well... for the truly hands-on types out there, there is this and this

Looks like it would not be too difficult, but then you can get a "Shooting Chrony" for $80 on Amazon. It's the Red Box, but it's Green. The difference is that the Green unit lacks the splat guard and muzzle cradle. All Shooting Chrony's measure velocities from 30 fps to 7,000 fps at 99.5% accuracy (according to the company website).

I have the handheld yellow one but it has much to be desired. I am leaning towards the clock for video purposes but who knows what I will end up with. Thanks for the insight I will be following the thread for updates.

This is what we use


Shooting F-1 Chronograph

Shooting Chrony's F-1 Chronograph gives you exact ballistics at an affordable price. Check velocities ranging from 30 fps to 7,000 fps to within 0.5% accuracy for any projectile, including arrows, bullets, pellets, etc. An LCD read-out stays on the screen until the next shot is fired. The F-1 is the basic ballistic work horse, with the option of upgrading to any other Chrony-model should you want more features anytime later. Constructed with a steel housing for strength, durability, and less expansion/contraction deviation than plastic housings. Weighing in at under a lightweight 2.5 lbs., the F-1 folds for safe carrying and storage. A manufacturer's three-year warranty is included.

Lol at the quote from Shawn Walker because I've shot the one they have at The Paintball Park.

For some reason, people always seem to think they need to be 1-2 inches above the chrono when shooting. Every time we play, someone ends up shooting ours as well. Still works good though!

Have four of them. The green chrony one above is accurate but can't be used indoor with fluorescent lighting. I do most my testing inside so this didn't work. Little yellow one is the most inconsistant-doesn't pick up the shot most of the time. Radar x is more relieable but press and hold the button can be a pain with a pump. Clock is nice and most expensive. One thing I wish it did was record the last 15 shots not just a string of shots. You have to shoot pretty fast for the memory to kick in. It also chews through batteries quickly. I ended up putting 2 9 volts in there for longer batt life. Good luck.

In my defense, I was also adjusting a reg at the time .
