How to Draw a Gun From a Holster? – One Hand Concealed Carry Draw – Concealed Holster Training Drills
Brent takes us through his process of how to draw a gun from a holster. His technique is always drawing his concealed weapon with one hand.
As the video will show, with practice this can be just as fast as a traditional two handed draw. Brent emphisizes the importance of training and practicing at the range using real life senarios. If you are not comfortable using live ammunition to practice drawing your firearm from a concealed carry holster, ALWAYS practice with your firearm unloaded to get the motion down before attempting to use live ammunition at the range. This is extremely important. Safety should always be at the forefront of any gun owner’s mind especially when carrying a firearm. As my last blog on “Choosing the best gun for concealed carry” states, the holster is just as important as the gun. Make sure your holster is the correct fit for your gun. Kydex is usually the best way to secure your firearm because it has some retention. Retention puts pressure on a area of the gun, usually the trigger gaurd to securly “snap” the gun into the holster. There should be just enough retention to securely “snap” the gun in place and keep it there, but not enough where you have to struggle to draw your firearm.
Always obey the firearms rules of safety when learning how to draw a gun from a holster which are:
- ALWAYS treat any firearm as if it were loaded.
- ALWAYS keep the gun pointed in a safe direction.
- ALWAYS keep your finger off the trigger until ready to shoot.
