    Drawn once, didn't have to fire. Combat Handguns magazine published the story in their "It Happened To Me" column a fee months ago, paid me $100 bucks for the story if you can believe that.

    Have you drawn and/or fired as an abnormal person? J/K

    I've never drawn (other than having a gun in hand when checking late night "bumps." But I don't count them) . I have however, displayed my holstered weapon in "a situation."

    It could be worse!
    I suppose

    Thankfully, I haven't had to do either, although, I suppose the odds of having to do it are decreasing, since it seems like the bad guys are increasing.

    I practice draw and fire exercises so I will have some muscle memory in case I ever need it.

    I have while in the vehicle gotten a firearm out and ready, but no one could see it but me. I have also put my hand on my gun without drawing it in a pinch but as far as pistols that is it. I have pulled my shot gun to save myself, but didnt fire it.

    Yeah. Didn't like it then and wouldn't like it again. Talley?? One dead coyote, one rabid dog, two skunks, four poison snakes, one feral hog on a walk around of my country place, a (small) bear in Alaska and two boogers.

    Maybe...

    If you want to talk about drawing weapons in SD, then the experts are honestly a bunch of 18-30 years olds. You old guys could learn a few things.

    If you're strictly talking as a CC'r in the US, then disregard.

    Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.

    With twenty plus years of carry, drawn twice during attempted home invasions, zero rounds fired.
