I have a question, as previously mentioned by Tominator iirc... the fact that this draw stroke, or any that have to clear a shirt first works much better with cotton than with other materials. I prefer to wear polyester t shirts particularly in the summer because they wick the persiration better. The downside is that they don't have the "body" of cotton and they drape / conform to shapes easily. Where a cotton shirt will easilly pull clear of the gun butt, polyster will drape around it and catch it from the bottom. Brownie, can you offer anything to counter that? TIA -

Great observation by you and Tom sir..

I can use the scoop draw with any shirt, form fitting or not IF the holster will allow [ no sharp edges for material to catch on ] the shirt to ride over it without snagging the bottom of it. It would only take a tweak or two with the basic skill to adjust for the form fitting vs loose T.

Right off the top of my head, when using the 3-4 fingers to snag the shirt for raising, simply grabbing shirt closer to the bottom of the holster would solve the potential issue. Little practice with it would certainly result in A way to clear the form fitter shirt IMO

Thanks Steve

I'm posting this video of event that captures rare footage of stressed draw for analysis. I'm not going to comment on individuals technique but did want feedback due to basis of Brownie's great thread on one handed draw from concealment on strong side. What say you Brownie?

i was looking at that the other day when it came out....looked like he cleared the shirt and had his hand on his gun before he came into frame....but real smooth and managed to pop the driver of the vehicle in the shoulder to stop the crime...seems like he took a long look at what was happening before drawing the gun...cant blame him...you never know what youre walking into....would love to see the footage of his approach and the shot....especially with the owner on the hood of the car....

Good suggestion Jim, thanks.

Not as many comments as I'd expect for the views, but they respond on other forums I'm on and many don't have a you tube account.

The PC/Bagwell description was pretty close to perfect. One or two words can be game changers.

Those of us who consume excellent content for free should at the very least play youtube's game and should like/comment/subscribe, as it helps the content creator get found. I'm not a member on other forums that I see you on, but I hope someone who is will read this and pass it on.
