The big trouble that I found with using a radar gun is that it only gives an accurate figure when the target is moving directly towards you -- not always easy!

The one I had (admittedly a cheaper model) had trouble locking onto a powerboat from far enough away to make it any real use.

Hope you have better luck with yours.
