    Slow is smooth. Smooth is fast. Practice it slow, until you are smooth. Practice it smoothly, speed will follow naturally..
    Soon smooth becomes fast. But always start your practice slow and steady.

    Love your podcast. I now listen to two podcasts regularly. Dark Secret Place and Concealed Carry Podcast.

    Awesome episode! Love the topics covered. If you happen to carry appendix style, here is a quick video describing the step by step process you can use to practice your draw. If you are carrying a firearm with a manual external safety, you would disengage that safety during the second step as you rotate the firearm toward the threat.
