A critical defense element that is extremely important is the use of a consistent system.
A system consists of a holster, draw, practice, dry fire, and range techniques to name a few.
Everyone’s system can and will vary based on personal preference of what works best for them.
The more we can practice our systems the better and less relevant anyone else’s opinions become.
For example I prefer external safeties such as my p938 legion and soon to own p226 legion Sao As one can imagine that sparks the age old…and tiring…debate of striker vs da/sa vs sao for CC… Let me tell you…I’m highly proficient in Sao with an external safety because I have a system that I train to. Part of my draw disables the external safety and it’s smooth and natural for me.
Having said all of this, what system do you have and use and how do you train to hone it?
