    Looks like the standard One-two-three draw to me. Nothing superfly or otherwise mind blowing in this video.

    Good information, especially for those who have not yet learned the draw!
    ALWAYS carry! - NEVER tell!

    I personally think that draw, while " text book ", is unpractical. When someone is attacking you, or robbing you. You're not going to think " Ok, hand on chest, hand on firearm, pull straight up, rotate arm, hands together, extend, aim, say stop, shoot. lol.. Its going to be, a surprise 99% of the time, and youre going to get your weapon out as fast as you can no matter how you do it... I bet this draw doesn't happen 96% percent of the time, when someone needs to draw their weapon. Just my opinion.

    Thats why you practice...It creates muscle memory, you shoot like you train.
    Don"t let stupid be your skill set....

    You'll never get your hand on your weapon if you are in the process of being robbed. Just give them your wallet, watch or whatever. No point in turning a robbery into a murder. Drawing while someone already has the drop on you is T.V. fantasy. Same thing goes for being rushed as the "21 foot rule" seems to support. The video teaches how to draw safely and in the process to follow a set pattern of movement. How many people shoot themselves (in the leg/foot or maybe the supporting hand even) while drawing or for reholstering? I work in a hospital and the answer is more times than you'd think.

    You're right... I NEVER think about where my hands are going. They just go there!

    And I'm sure that's because you've practiced... and practiced... and practiced...

    As Harryball mentioned - muscle memory.

    This reminds me, I haven't practiced enough lately.
