The Art of the Draw...

After seeing Carteach0's excellent series on the home defense shotgun, I decided to try my hand at amateur video (no, not that kind, TD, sheesh...):

Drawing a S&W j-frame from a pocket holster.

(And yes, the video was taken yesterday, on Pink Shirt Day).

Not too shabby for my first attempt (the speedloader videos were significantly easier as I could look directly at the camera screen!) at self-videoing. There were a couple of things I didn't point out in the video, like covering the back of the hammer with my thumb so it didn't get caught on anything during the draw, but I think I got the major points covered.

(And if you look really hard, you can see my pile 'o' Heinlein - and 300 - as my "reading material"...)

That is all.

Heh. That was only the second take, too...

What pants are you wearing?

I'm carrying a Ruger LCP in a pocket holster in a pair of Levis 560's.

When practicing my draw the problem I have is not getting the gun out of my pocket, but getting my hand into my pocket in the first place.

if you're being held up, throw your "Ferrari" keys to the bad guy, then dig into your other pocket for your "wallet"

"hold on let me get it out..."

out comes a Walther PPS to give them a severe case of lead poisoning.
