Drawing from a Holster

drawing a pistol from a holster

To get good at drawing from a holster you need consistency. You want to do the same thing every time.

You should get a good solid grip on the pistol in the same place every time. The draw out of the holster should be the same. Your presentation to the target should be the same every time.

This takes practice. Dry fire training is good for this. This way you will develop muscle memory that will work during stress situations.

I found a good video that demonstrates this. I especially like the part about situational awareness and follow through.

Check out the video and let us know what you think in the comments.

  1. Very good. I need to practice this technique

  2. Video doesn’t appear? Why?

    Great video and/or advise . . . with one exception. If the threat is such that drawing and firing a firearm is necessary; i would not be in any hurry to re-holster my firearm.

    • Assess that all threats have been neutralized and all rooms cleared…then worry about calmly and slowly reholstering…at least that’s how I was taught
