Here's a vid I made on drawing from concealment. It was something I always just assumed would happen (getting my garment out of the way that is) until I took some time to learn how to actually do it. Its worth thinking about BEFORE you are ever in a situation where you'd need it.

Something we all need to practice no matter which system you use.........

Agreed. I was hoping to get people to realize that they need to think about it now, rather than in the fight.

You're system is quite efficient & something everyone should practice on a daily basis, regardless of the particular technique in general. :)

+1 on the snag concerns. I think I set a range distance record launching a Cold Steel folder.:redface:

You were drawing your gun and somehow caught your knife instead?
Caught the pocket clip with the bottom of a banded polo [golf] shirt as I snatched it up Did'nt slow the draw, but the knife flew about 10 ft down range. [ I carry appendix @ 1- 1:30. ]:embarassed:
Knife in right jeans pocket.
Draw was completed at normal speed- shot on target was delayed while I did the old- "What the ---?"

While potentially useful, the batman technique made me chuckle a bit. It wouldn't have been funny had it not been for the repetition. Being able to have the same draw for all garment types is one of the reasons appendix carry has become so popular.

Hey Snare: Thank you for the video. Well done and I applaud you for producing same. As far as I am concerned, most of what you have showed should be something that anyone who already is CC should really have a knowledge of by the time they watch your video; if you have educated some who take their CC responsibility a little too lightly, or have made some draw-practice a bit more, then you have accomplished something. My take on the scenarios that could lead to a need to draw focus more on situational awareness and withdrawal/evasion than any face to face immediate confrontation--I surely understand the potential for face to face confrontation but spend more time making sure of my situational awareness during my 24/7 days and that includes the potential to withdraw/evade, as I go about my daily activities. Not saying face to face, per your video, cannot happen but I have every intention of making sure it never does as I embrace my surroundings and plan my evasive maneuvers 24/7.
As an additional video, you might also come up with something that relates to draw while in a car. To me, the most legitimate reason I would have to CC in daytime would be in my car and the potential for road rage and auto-related confrontations. Coming up with a comprehensive video on this scenario could be very helpful for many given the number of times I have seen a thread on this very subject. Not so sure if there is a lot of room for such a discussion, but your thoughts are welcome.

Ya, I recently stated in another thread - After getting an OWB holster and trying it out, I have no idea how most people handle strongside carry. All that twisting and reaching back is really akward + tough for me. My shoulder didn't like me at all. I had only tried an IWB strongside holster briefly before, with all the same results, really thought OWB would be better.

I really didn't have an idea of how much I appreciate AIWB carry, I just found it most comfortable and covenient and went with it from the beggining. Another BIG plus of appendix carry is being able to draw with you off hand, and from laying flat on your back. I practice these draws as well.

But back to the video, good job SnareMan, some great demonstration on qaulity draws. Definitely something ALOT of people don't put much thought or practice into, and lot's of new people to CC who have'nt probably given any thought to it.

I have had similar experiences as N.M.Edmands. It can happen. Mine was with a class-full of witnesses.

I knew something had snagged, but I pushed through it (since I felt that it was safe to do so).

I've also had practice draw-and-shoots where I somehow managed to get a handful of shirt between my dominant hand and the gun - and I shot through, because I felt it was safe to do so.

Things will happen when you draw from concealment. I'm actually rather surprised that I've never managed to snag my belt buckle! :lol:

Thanks for the comments. I agree that everyone should have mastered this to some degree if they are going to carry, but from what I've seen many CCW people can barely shoot or draw from an open carry position very well, let alone having thought about how to do it with a garment over it. I definitely agree on situational awareness as well. Too many people have their head in the sand. And thanks for the idea on the car vid! Great idea. I already have some ideas and weather permitting can hopefully have one up in the next few weeks!
