However, the basis of all this discussion is the assumption that all situations will involve a fast draw against, presumably, someone else also making a quick draw, or so it seems.
In most jurisdictions, unless you are in your domicile or in some cases, place of business or employment, you may not produce the weapon unless and until you are in imminent danger. If the attacker has contact weapon, that probably gives you about a second and a half to draw from concealment and, if still necessary, fire, according to studies made by Dennis Tueller. Whether someone else is drawing is another question entirely.

Now you tell me you can make a really fast draw from concealment and I'll stop making comments.
Well, 1.5 seconds is not cowboy action speed, but it does require practice.

In my opinion, it is far easier to do so if one does not have to chamber a round.
