How to have the proper draw stroke:

The Draw Stroke. It seems like everyone in the firearms industry has their own special way of drawing. I suppose we do too! We do a 5-step draw stroke process. We do it this way because we are able to break down this one fluid motion into 5 separate movements so each student can work on each movement individually and master that movement before moving on.

We’ve had great success in teaching it this way! By breaking it up into 5 steps we can go through it step by step and articulate why each movement is important. What many instructors fail to mention is that when your dominant hand is drawing, your support hand MUST be moving at the same time. This is critical so you won’t be lagging behind your dominant hand or flagging yourself.

Also, the draw stroke is something that can be practiced at home with a dry firearm. Meaning, you need to unload your firearm and put the ammo far, far away. You can practice this while watching The Walking Dead and pretend to shoot the zombies.

Watch the video below and you’ll see what I’m talking about.
