    Yes. I've drawn twice and fired once.
    Proven combat techniques may not be flashy and may require a bit more physical effort on the part of the shooter. Further, they may not win competition matches, but they will help ensure your survival in a shooting or gunfight on the street. ~Paul Howe

    I'm with Macantic & REVMAN, I've done neither & truly hope not to...but prepared to do so nonetheless.
