LIVE LONG AND PROSPER
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.”
