    For concealed carry con-0. There’s too much other stuff to worry with if I draw my gun. My mechanics need to be simple pull, point, press.

We all know it because it is part of our thinking but nobody should ever forget that there is a tremendous amount of responsibility we have as CC people. People just think you can jump into it and as long as you got your permit, bought some crappy holster and the cheapest gun you could afford that you are some sort of tactical operator. It never ceases to amaze me that every open carry person I have ever seen is usually some overweight slob with a cheap $10 Walmart holster and their gun looks like it has spent most of its life bouncing around in the bed of a truck. I hear the term responsible gun ownership and that should be especially true of someone who carries. I also laugh when I hear it will only add a half a second to rack the slide. How long do people think being attacked takes? Do they think they are going to see a person two blocks away coming toward them and they will have the time to go through preparing for that attacker. If you have that much time then avoid the attack altogether. Anyway, those are my thoughts.
    Exactly, if you get in a situation where you need to fire your gun, you will probably dry fire it. Most people don't realize what happens in high stress situations.

    Remember the church shooting in Texas. The Good Guy who was killed with a shotgun was trying to access his firearm to stop the threat when he caught a load of shot to the chest.

    He didn't even have time to access his firearm, much less chamber a round.

    If only he had been open carrying, . . .
