I would highly suggest you practice.
I have practiced drawing while sitting in a chair both in my home, and in my vehicle (in the garage of course).
It also helps to let just the butt of your pistol peek out of your waistband so you can draw your pistol even easier, depending on your current smartcarry setup. Either way, you NEED to have an easy way to draw while seated in your vehicle.
Glad to hear you got your wallet back and were not harmed.
Believe me, since this incident, I do practice while in the car randomly and have gotten used to the draw.....however sometimes I have a spare ankle holster in the car just in case i want to carry it that way ...in my opinion, ankle holsters provide the fastest draw while seated in a car.....Also, just to add onto my story above, I now know of one person who attempted to drive away from the exact same situation i was in and he was shot by the BG.
I don't know what caliber the bullet was (BG here typically use a .32 FMJ .30 FMJ and 9MM FMJs) but the bullet went clean through his chest and got lodged inside the vehicle.....He was very lucky to have survived...Sometimes fight or flight both dont work i learned.....
Stay safe .....
Good idea. I am considering a .38+P snubby as my backup to put in the other pocket of my smartcarry, but you have me also considering an ankle holster, for that ease of draw in a vehicle. I may do both depending on different modes of dress.
Welcome to the forum, there are some really great people here who are always willing to give information and help. Glad you came out of it ok, and wish you the best.
