Question How to apply time cut?

Hello, I wonder what is the best method to reject particles which come later than a certain time t (this is to take into account time window of the electronics, since signals coming later may not be all detected, hence decreasing the efficiency).

I'm aware of 2 possibilities:

a) set uTimeMax in G4UserLimits

b) reject later particle in the sensitive detector's ProcesHits, something like:

 G4double hitTime = aStep->GetPostStepPoint()->GetGlobalTime();
 if (hitTime > myTimeLimit) return true...

Could you please tell me which is the best way to implement this?

Thank you in advance for your time, Angela
