Table / Booth position at a restaurant
I was sitting in a booth at a local restuarant, and I began to wonder what I would do if someone came in to rob the place. Not a big threat, in a large fairly upscale place, but still... Obviously I want a booth or table that gives me the best view of the door, but I had to think a bit on what side of the booth I wanted. I'm right handed, and keep my carry gun under my left arm. I practice with both hands, but am better with my right.
So, do I sit with my left arm to the outside of the booth, to cover pulling the weapon and forcing a cross body, and less accurate, shot. An advantage is that I could keep the gun inside the booth, and at least keep a small ( very ) element of surprise for any more BG's.
Do I sit with my right arm to the outside, showing my draw but allowing me a better chance of hitting the target ? I'd also have to extend my arm ( I'm 6 foot 1 in my socks ), probably outside the booth, and expose my weapon to any other BG's in the area.
