Here is a scenario that was applied in a recent force-on-force training event I participated in. The good guy is instructed to assume his best ready-to-fire stance, aiming at the bad guy six feet away who is holding a pistol relaxed at his side. The good guy is to fire as soon as the bad guy makes any move whatsoever. A few seconds later, the bad guy brings his pistol up and fires. I repeated this exercise as the good guy several times, and the best I could muster was a tie. While this exercise doesn't allow for all variables in a draw-against-the-drop situations, it certainly added an element of realism to my sometimes magical thinking.
