LIVE LONG AND PROSPER

Outdoor Life - - PERSONAL DEFENSE -

With these steps com­pleted, you can con­tinue life with a smile. Prac­tic­ing the se­quence is key. For the first hun­dred times or so, watch what you’re do­ing. Af­ter that, you should be able to safely hol­ster your hand­gun without look­ing. From the time of your last shot, the pro­ce­dure should take be­tween 8 to 12 sec­onds.

Don’t just take my word for it. Dave Hart­man, the train­ing di­rec­tor at Gun­site Academy, says, “We don’t tol­er­ate speed­hol­ster­ing here. Hol­ster­ing should be a con­trolled and con­scious ef­fort, not slam­ming the gun into a hol­ster. Once the gun comes out in a self-de­fense sit­u­a­tion, one should not be in a hurry to hol­ster un­til suf­fi­cient help ar­rives.”
