    You are correct. An artifact of too much open carry in uniform.

    But Sam raises a good point. I was just talking about the cadence of fire, but there is gear shifting with just about everything we do.

    My POV is the mechanics of getting the pistol out are the same, but there is no need for a quick draw unless there is need for a quick draw. Fast motion is easily picked up by everyone...and its not just a matter of stealth or surreptitious draw...it is a matter of control. If you are in control you will move quickly but no need to move as quickly as when being shot at. It simply doesn't help/

    I was referring more to training than practice. Situation will always dictate tactics.

    As the adage goes, slow is smooth, and smooth is fast. This very true for draws.
