    Good idea. Then you have to decide if the juice (that .05 second advantage) is worth the squeeze. I've been decocking when coming off target for so long I'm not sure it would be for me. This is definitely a YMMV thing.

    Decock. Every reason to. 0.05s is not significant.

    I decided to give this another couple of tries. First one was a fail, managed to squeak by on the second try.

    Target, gun, holster, concealment (if used): IDPA practice, Beretta PX4 full-size, JMCK IWB3, unbuttoned jacket.
    First try:
    Time and hit on String 1: .56, -1
    Time and hit on String 2: 1.49, -0
    Pass or Fail: Fail. There was a good bit of self-talk after that first shot -1.

    Second try:
    Time and hit on String 1: .49, -0
    Time and hit on String 2: 1.47, -0
    Pass or Fail: Pass

    I don't know if the difference between this try and the first is due to the different-sized guns or something else. The guns are equally accurate and have about the same sight radius.

    What did you use for a ready position?

    Low ready, finger indexed.

    Five repetitions. All shots under time. First shot from low ready and finger indexed on slide. Second shot from concealment.

    One miss on shot one (first rep), and one miss on shot two (second rep). Three out of five runs = pass.

    Not sure when I shot the LEM last, but it’s been a few months and I was curious how I would do. First shot from low ready with finger indexed. Second shot from concealment. Five reps, same as the G19.5 I just posted.

    First two shots were over time. Shot one from rep four was .37, but off the paper low. Got on the trigger way too early to compensate the long trigger pull I suppose. All shots from the concealed draw were hits within time.

    Obviously start position matters.
    I did three runs of each string ramping up speed.
    From concealment, cotton sweater vest on top of AIWB G43x. Fingers curled below garment edge.

    0.78s, 0.75s, 0.69s all hits.


    Then from low ready with red dot down at target's "feet", finger off trigger.
    Three runs, ramping up speed.

    0.37s, 0.33s, 0.29s all hits.
    Pointing at cardboard things....
