Your experience sounds much like mine, except in 35 years, I have had to unholster twice. Once in the defense of my wife and kids.
Hope you never have to unholster, but in case you do, get your mindset and co-ordination together. You need instinct and practice, as in the adrenalin of the moment, slow decisions are not the choice in your interest.
I'm way up north of big Seatown, so don't M & G much.
Keep yer powder dry!
