    Is there an Internet compendium of actual self defense encounters on the Internet? It sounds to me that in cases of self defense, more often than not, Draw Time (pulling the gun out of concealment) is not so much an issue. To me, it's not like two gun fighters in the OK Corral have a fight to the death with the fastest draw.

    Your thoughts?

    No two incidents will be exactly alike, Rick. There are any number of situations "civilians" have faced where the ability to QUICKLY deploy the gun by surprise has saved their lives. Speed of draw from concealment strikes me as a very important skill for the armed citizen.
