Default Speed Shooting

To get a good idea of how you are doing I would try going to a local IDPA (www.IDPA.com) match. You can shoot your first match for free and all events are timed down to the hundredth of a second. All you need to shoot are your Glock, at least 2 magazines (3 is preferred), concealment holster that covers the trigger guard(no SOB holsters), and a concealment garment that covers the gun and spare magazines(eye and ear protection also required).
Most local matches go through 50 to 75 rounds and last a few hours. All kinds of skill levels are usually present. Stock Glocks are the most common gun at the matches, followed by 1911's. Shooters are scored by skill level, by gun type, by accuracy, and by time.
It's not as stressful as a real world shooting, but it is surprising how it affects your shooting when you are racing a clock and you know all your shoots are being scored.
Try it,
John Q.

took a tactical shooting course a few months ago. I used my G19 and we stood 2 feet from the target with hands up, like in a stick up position, and the instructor hit the buzzer and we had to draw and shoot 2 rounds, my best was 3.9 secs. my Glock was in a paddle holster under my shirt and light jacket.

Any of you guys do the Bill drill? If so what kind of times to you put up?

If you don't know what the Bill drill is here you go:

Default Sloooooooooow

Sorry Tex, 3.9 for 2 shots at 2 feet is slow even if you had a thumb break holster. You need to cut that time at least in half.

If I had been drawing from an uncovered holster like the man in the video I am sure my time would have been faster. but the orignal question was how fast did someone draw from a concealed carry position.

Just under 2 seconds with Glock 32, Fobus paddle holster under a light jacket, open in front. One aimed shot after the draw.

Wouldn't practicing something like that make it look like you were getting ready to kill someone? Are you trying to build up business or just trying to lock up a law-abiding citizen for doing the right thing?

Have a nice day
