I practice drawing with my single actions all the time, but you start out slow and get your hands accustomed to the proper timing. Ones speed increases over time. No one at a cowboy action shoot who is real fast got that way without practice. However practicing with a loaded gun inside your house is just asking for trouble. It could have been worse, he could have killed someone. Even with Cowboy loads the .44MAG would have gone through a couple of walls or ceilings and floors.
My former neighbor took a .357MAG through his leg and now is unable to work at his chosen proffession. He was a framer and roofer, his leg is so screwed up he can't climb around on houses anymore. He shot himself responding to a prowler situation. Scared the prowler off but ended up in the hospital because his finger was in the wrong place.

For practice drawing from holster I use Speer plastic bullets and cases..
Primers are the propellant and an old carpet at 20 feet is a great backstop.
Use earplugs as they can be loud in a garage or basement.
