    I'm reopening this thread now that Draw=Commit is back in action, lets try and keep this on when to draw, not when to fire, the draw=fire debate tends to overwhelm the original topic. Lets start with the basics on this one and then proceed in other threads.

    Thanks for your cooperation.

    Starting with the basics:

    Any decision about when to draw is going to be a balance between a faster response time when things go south and being on the wrong end of a brandishing charge. Every situation is going to be different, but I think we can make some generalizations. For instance, you're going to have a lot more latitude to draw early in your own home than when you're out in public. At the opposite end of the spectrum, if you're out in a crowded public place, there's almost no opportunity to draw, short of an actual decision to use deadly force. The situations where the real debate happens are the ones in between: in your car during a road rage incident, walking down a dark street with a couple of suspicious characters walking towards you.
