We are told to maintain approximately one car length distance from the car ahead of us for every 10mph, or 2 seconds elapsed, in order to allow for our reaction time. However, from the instant we recognize a threat, how long does it take us to begin the physical movements to uncover and draw?

I didn't realize there was a link to a game.
I went back and played the game. Once I figured it out I was a "bobbing bobcat". I did manage to become an "ambling armadillo" once too by letting one sheep almost get off the screen before shooting.
The problem I had trouble with was the "pre-cues" to shooting. I saw and interpreted movement that is consistent with running. Of course the computer gave me a three second penalty for that.
In this game it's a three second penalty and no chance at explaining your actions. That could very much be like a "furtive movement" shooting. At least in real life I would have the opportunity and ability to defend my actions.

Bobbing bobcat here too. Oh well. It's Sunday......I cut myself a little bit of slack once in a while. At least I didn't forget to go back and vote in the poll.
I got rocketing rabbit. Played a few more times and actually got a few sheep in 0.000 seconds.
I played 4 times and was labeled a rocketing rabbit every time. I guess I am good to go for being over 65

Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.
