I train similar to you and I am always looking for little tricks to add to my "survival" bag.
I think a lot of people who carry are quick to dismiss the fact that they may need to separate themselves from an attacker to get to their gun. I also read a lot where people rely almost solely on their situational awareness in hopes of surviving or avoiding an attack. I think these are huge mistakes and bull headed attitudes.
It's tough to convince people to change their ways. I've been trying for years to get my father to train and practice more as well as carry more often, but to no avail. He's like me and can be very stubborn.
