Yeah, but can he hit that tire from the same distance and make the knife stick? :dgrin:GBullet said:BigJon carries a sharp knife, too. Last year, I saw him whack a deer up in about 30 seconds.
Moral of the story: Don't go messin' with big ********!

I just saw you draw from a concealed in which you have your T-Shirt over the pistol. As you go for the gun, do you clear the t-shirt with your shooting hand and then draw or do you use your weak hand to rip the shirt up and away and draw with the strong hand. The second one is much more efficient, more likely to assure the sirt is out of the way, and usually faster.
Mag - If my shirt is tucked, I always rip up with the offhand. I do it too if my t-shirt is untucked. For the important reasons you mentioned, though, I also practice with a one handed draw from tucked carry. My method is unorthodox, but it does work, at least for me. Since there's no way to get the shirt out of the way, I grab the pistol, shirt and all, and shoot straight through the shirt. You talked about geometry, and that is, in fact, key to this. Draw straight up and out, and then rotate the pistol into position. On the downward half of this, the shirt clears out of the way of the hammer, at least it does for me - every time, at least with a target right in front of me. Might cause problems with a target to my weak side that has it's arm around my neck though. Will keep experimenting.Magnum88C said:... I also carry IWB under t-shirts most of the time. I use the offhand to rip up the shirt, but also practice the draw such that my thumb is under the shirt, as I lift the hand, the thumb pulls the shirt away from the gun. Grip fingers grip the gun, thumb comes down and pops the snap as I'll pulling up on the gun. There's potential for the hammer to snag on the garment this way, but I figure that if I'm drawing that way it's because I'm in close and the offhand it fending off the foe, at which point the drill is to just draw and fire from retention, so it shouldn't be a problem.
