This is a live fire and a dry fire demonstration to illustrate how shooters must balance speed and accuracy.
Hostile action comes fast, so while a shooter must always favor accuracy over speed, that accuracy still must be fast enough to counter a deadly threat.
Studies show an average armed citizen with a concealed handgun and a general state of awareness can observe a perceived threat, determine whether to draw their gun or not, and then move to an effective drawstroke and presentation of their weapon in about 2.5 to 5 seconds. This presumes said citizen is trained and prepared for trouble. What Cooper called “Condition Yellow.”
These same studies show an average person can cross 21-25 feet in about 1.5 seconds! These collected videos using a variety of angles, illustrate how even under ideal conditions a determined threat that is already in motion has a decided advantage over even a trained and prepared armed citizen.
