That's a great video brownie! It's been working well for me ever since I learned if from you! I've never lost control of the gun in thousands of draws during dry fire or live fire shooting! :thumsup

As usual, Brownie, you make it look easy! Practice! Keep in mind that modern fabrics might require a different technique.
...As posted on the 'tube.

This is easy to practice with cotton shirts, but modern fabrics can make this a challenge.

I prefer this method for the reasons given.:thumsup

As always another great teaching video sir! It seemed in the slo-mo (just after the 5:10 mark) that you started the scoop with the four fingers but somewhere around a third of the way up(?) your point finger started to drop down in preparation for the draw and your thumb began to engage at about three quarters of the way up(?)

"Appreciate the thoughts folks. I knew many people couldn't visualizer it in narrative on the boards, so it was long overdue. "

Don't know why but the bolded triggered a memory of QKR where Brownie is bustling about the range amongst the students like The ENERGIZER Bunny!:grin

Endless energy, nonstop teaching and ohhhh the stories!!!:bowdown

I caught that myself in watching the slow mo part. Just more economy of motion over the years proprioceptively ingrained from tens of thousands of draw strokes sir. Good catch :thumsup

Great video explanation!
To counter a threat at very close distance could the scoop draw be combined with a speed-rock presentation? The video also demonstrated just how far out ahead of you the muzzle is on full extension of the arm.

Free men are not equal. Equal men are not free.

It could be scoop draw to 1/4 hip, you were seeing 1/2 hip presentations and though it looks like it's sticking out there, that skill is used for 3-9 feet If one were at 3 feet and moved on one using 1/2 as was shown in the vid, the extension wouldn't be made but the off hand would be in defend mode while the pistol was drawn to 1/4 hip. 1/4 hip isn't for the feint of heart, limp wristing is a real concern [ though it happens rarely for me, it happens ] and thus if pressed in close as you suggest, either use h2h to create the distance to draw and fire or draw while using the left arm to keep them just off the muzzle.

In the real world, if they're that close to the gun as it presents, I'm likely going to revert to a skill for near contact shot/s by first pressing the muzzle into them and quickly retracting while firing. That prevents some semi's from going out of battery in any struggle in tight. Trained that skill as a default contact shot drill to remain a constant no matter what firearm is being used.

Speed rock wasn't something I'd ever use in close. Rocking back, it's too easy to be unbalanced as your upper isn't supported by the lower body. As the years have passed, it's become recognized for just that and dropped from most training. Appreciate the questions, and thoughts

Good video! I find the scoop draw to be very natural and reliable.
I find much of everything brownie teaches to be just that! :thumsup

once mastered it doesn't get any easier than a single handed draw....quick to the first shot and nothing in the way....brownies training teaches you how to use the skills you already possess...you just didn't know it...that's what makes everything so natural....
