Illustrative video. Seems odd anyone needs to see it to understand the concept. Buy the gun you feel comfortable chambered. Period.

Are those the only video chunks she is in? In any case I was always a believer, that is just more evidence. She could have had two more seconds if she started screaming about the wasp on his head while drawing.

yep, but there are some out there that carry with an empty chamber and say that they can chamber a round fairly quickly, this video shows otherwise.

???

She's on the forum, but i can't think of her screen name.

Edit: her screen name is lima.

now if my logic is correct, i think she is from/lives in Lima, OH, since she is good friends with an Instructor @ TDI (which is also in Ohio)

Agreed. And, IMO, those are the same people that think the defensive encounters they imagine are the only ones they'll encouter.

Definately. I remember it this way: 21<1.2. That's 21 feet closure in less than 1.2 seconds from stationary. And, coincidentally, 1.2 seconds is on the fast end of reaction time. Discussion.

For a very new shooter/carrier, this is pretty powerful. Right now I carry a 17+0, just to get used to it, but cocked and locked while in the glove box.

And it looks like she knows what she is doing, too. Think of how much worse it would be for somebody that has no training in drawing their weapon under stress.

This. Some people get so married to a brand (GLOCK) or type of gun (1911) that they can't see past this. If you are not comfortable carrying either of these in their quickest safe method of deployment, then it's time to move on to a true DA (hammer fully down) auto or a revolver.

That's a good idea! I don't know how many times that topic comes up and you always have the guy that says "I don't need one in the chamber I can use my martial arts to protect myself" or "I can chamber a round really fast"!

Yeah, I have conversed with the guy that assures me that he can draw his gun and chamber a round with one hand while fending off an attacker with the other.

Let me start by saying I 100% believe you should carry with one in the chamber. A unloaded gun is a useless gun.

BUT! That video is kind of, well... Let's just say "inaccurate" a little bit to be nice. "I can not draw until presented with a clear threat". If there someone coming at you with his hand under his shirt, that is a threat. Especially if you are a woman (no sexism meant). You should have already had your gun drawn, and the second he made a step toward you he should have been put on the ground with brain matter beside him. If there is someone within 21 feet of you acting aggressive toward you and making you feel uncomfortable or threatened, draw your firearm and tell them if they don't want it to go off, they need to step the F back.
