Frame by frame lesson on a smooth AIWB (Appendix-Inside-The-Waistband) Draw.
I think the most important lesson here is in Frame #1: Notice the trigger finger goes to the “high register” position of the gun on the outside of the holster. That way when the gun is deployed, the finger is nowhere near the trigger.
Two most important things in a good drawstroke:
Trigger Finger at High Register away from the triggerguard
Muzzle Discipline (NEVER “Cover” a body part with your muzzle)
Never, Ever sacrifice SPEED for SAFETY!
That’s how idiot’s shoot themselves.
This goes back to my previous article about Vehicle Security
We spend a LOT OF TIME in our Vehicles, often times more than we think.
Therefore, drilling on self-defense scenarios while driving are extremely important.
From my experience, situations like this (while inside a vehicle) are extremely fluid and complex.
Before we even start thinking about drawing our weapon we need to consider if EGRESS is possible?
I have always said that the 2 ton vehicle you are driving TRUMPS the 29 oz handgun you are carrying!
Consider and Know the Legalities in your State. In Texas, The Castle Doctrine states my vehicle is part of my domicile.
As far as the actual handgun drill, it needs to be drilled on 80/20.
80% dry fire to 20% live fire. Why? Repeition in Presenting the Firearm is the crux of the drill.
Regardless of how you choose to approach it (seatbelt off before or after) DRILL on it the same way, EVERY TIME until it is Smooth and free of snags.
Sound, practical advice a lot of shooters might overlook.
Stay Alert, Armed and Dangerous!
