LE 3:1 Basic Skill Sets: Drawing the Pistol
There are numerous techniques on how to draw a gun but in this video Sprout discusses some basic principles of minimizing unnecessary movement. Basically any unnecessary movement such as lifting the shoulder, dropping the shoulder and re-lifting the shoulder, etcetera. From a relaxed position an officer wants to drive their fingertips to the gun, defeat the retention and the gun as fluidly as possible. Remember to reengage the retention devise when re-holstering to be sure you are training defeating the retention in a consistent manner. The first phase is to draw while you are stationary but the progression off that is to draw and take a step to the right and to the left.
