Draw Time! The Science of the Draw & What’s Fast or Fast Enough?

Presenter - Cole McCulloch

Firearm accessibility and draw time is often discussed in the defensive world of training. Have you considered the actual time it takes to properly access and draw and fire from a variety of concealed carry positions? This session will take an interactive and scientific look at a variety of concealed carry approaches and what real times equate to your ability to access a concealed carry firearm. We'll also examine and link the time it takes to access our firearm to the time it takes attackers to do what they do. After this session, you'll likely never again look at your concealed carry draw time the same way.
