Deployment is EVERYTHING.
If you cannot deploy your concealed weapon with relative ease and speed, it is useless.
That is only if you think of your firearm as your first line of defense. I think of mine as my last line of defense, and I would only ever draw it from the safety of cover. My first line of defense is always escape or evade, or hand to hand. If they are too far away for hand to hand, then they are far enough away for me to find some quick cover.
I agree with you though. Too many people, including cops, get killed while fumbling for their firearm. That is just poor training and poor planning and poor situational awareness.
Using any potentially weapon in self defense should always be a last resort.
Thats said, if you can " find cover" the threat is no longer a self defense situation ( unless a team of ninjas are attacking you from their cover in a bad action movie)
