Just ran across this and figured at least one person on here would be inspired:

This could end the whole "springer hold" debates.

That's a great find. Squeezing enough speed out of an Arduino to do airgun timing takes a little work. It will be interesting to dive in and see what he did. Might even be able to add a trip wire to the muzzle to get a timing mark for the pellet leaving the muzzle.

As for ending the springer hold debates.....I think it would provide some fresh data for the debate to chew on for a while.

Thanks for posting this.
