Pro’s Guide to Pistol Fundamentals: OWB Holster Draw and Outside Presentation
How to correctly draw a gun? Where does the non-dominant hand meet the other? Is my gear set up the proper way? Rick Crawley explains it all in this episode from UF PROs Pistol Fundamentals Series.
Setups need to be consistent. We cannot fight human behavior, so we have to go toward our natural responses. Luckily, we are humans—and, luckily too, we wear pants. Learn how to take advantage of seams and a front pocket to find your holster and establish grip. Your belt is the first line of gear. It’s also the first line of defense, the first line of care, and the first line of aid. If your gun is down and you need to feed it, you should not fight natural human response. Instead, you must be able to get to these features without thinking about them.
