This is a discussion on how often are you practicing drawing from a concealed holster? within the Concealed Carry Issues & Discussions forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; Originally Posted by PhaedrusIV Opinion based on logic and known facts - how silly is that ? https://www.verywell.com/fast-and-sl...fibers-3120094...
I was taught to respect my elders! The problem is, I'm having a much harder time finding them these days .
There is a solution but we are not Jedi... not yet.
We have deep thinkers and stinkers in this group that could come up with a solution...

The test will be open book, at 0900 tomorrow.

I'll just skip school if it's OK with the teacher. I have slow/smooth/fast practice at nine. Anyone care to join me ?
I don't. I carry OWB at 3:00 position with my shirt over it. As long as I can get the shirt up fast enough, I am good.

Not very often. I'm as fast as I need or care to be, and don't care to put anymore energy in to it then I have to.
I have gone months without shooting or drawing with no discernible difference.

I practice as much as I feel like, and no more. Having the fastest draw in the land isn't a goal I strive for. Much like everything else in life, there's a balance we all strike, and whatever you do or don't do is fine with me.
It appears it's not the physical time of drawing that's increased, but an increase in the time it takes me to react to stimulus. .22 seconds doesn't seem like much, but it represents a 50% reduction between reaction and physically getting the gun operational.

I already had a very nice combo of speed and smoothness in my draw but I've practice it more and more since I've come across this thread.

I find the fact that people posting they have a fast smooth draw, or haven't the degradation from lack of practice, or have a draw they believe is fast enough don't post their actual times. Most probably don't actually know their reaction times, many more probably don't want to know.
For years on other forums I stated I was fast when the subject of speed of draw to hits was discussed. Several gamers wanted to know my times, and how could I state I was fast when I didn't have any documented times to be used against the times of those who are/have been considered fast. So I bought a shot timer, threw up some times [ before the you tube channel was created ] and lo and behold, I was told I was fast. Couldn't quantify times and thus determine speed relative to others, without the timer.
How many here who've posted about "speed" actually own a timer and know just what their speed is to draw and fire? Have tracked their progress or degradation over the years to state with some authority through the tale of a timer?
Time, sometimes it's of the essence, to remain upright and not leaking. As you mentioned elsewhere, better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it. It's a real kick in the pants to see the slow degradation of speed over a decade. I'm sure it's a combination of age and as I stated on page two, not actually spending the requisite time on draws over the same time frame.
It's like I've turned into this now, comparatively speaking.
