    how fast is your ccw draw?

    Can you toss up a pair of soda cans , draw from CCW and hit both in midair? it's not that tough, if you start with your hand in your front pants pocket, on the gun butt. :-) same tremendous advantage in a fight. Nobody pays any attention to the fact that your hands are in your pockets. Hitting a 2" mark at 1m is the same as hitting a 12" wide chest at 6m. If you cant do the first, you can't do the second,either. A man can charge 10 ft and be all over you in 1.0 second flat. Just ask George Z if stuff can't get way out of hand in less than a second!

    if you have a timer, you can learn to react to the timer's beep, draw from hand in pocket, and hit the chest, at arm's length, in .55 second. Since .20 second of that was your reaction time, the actual draw and fire move took .35 second. you can punch him a lot faster, as in .10 second. you can take a step and punch him in .40 second, if you are well trained and fit. So, at hip shooting ranges, if there's just one attacker, you're better off to use hand to hand, IF you know how, and if you are a fit adult male. especially if your gun is in a hip rig, under a shirt. That position makes the ccw draw nearly twice as slow as the hand in pocket ccw draw.

    Don't know. I don't practice for things with so many variables that it would make most peoples heads spin. If I'm meant to live, I won't end up on some embalmers table. If I do, so be it.

    A few months ago I was at the range. Young guy shows up to shoot in the adjacent lane. Tosses one a them polymer geometric roll targets on the ground. Pulls his little CCW pistol from beneath his shirt tail and pops that target faster than you can blink. I ain't no shakes at such things, but IMO the kid was pretty darn quick. Generally rolled that target too. Impressed me.

    My thoughts are generally clear. My typing, not so much.

    I'd like a video of you tossing a pair of soda cans, drawing from your pocket, and hitting them midair.

    What with Armoured car standoffs and now a Quick Draw McGraw, I think I may be spending more and more time on my Garden Croquet Forum.

    There being (over there) a few less “Hoops” and not as many things that need a smack with a mallet.

    My shooting partner in high school once shot a can of motor oil in the air with his .357.

    Yes, that was messy!

    Can you still get the operator, if you dial (rotary phone of course) "0?"

    Them's some tall tales you telling there, Pecos Bill. You sound all talk to me. I've had run ins with spetsnatz, IRA, yakuza, triads, etc., so I know what I speak. And when I say you're full of it, you're full of it. But, to answer your question about how fast I draw, let's just say it's faster than the human eye can follow.

    Anybody want to chip in on a couple of one-way Greyhound tickets to the SE Shoot? I've got plenty of room to bury 'em when they shoot each other, so a ticket home would be a moot point!
