BT, I am pretty sure you know the type of vest I mean. This is not a fleece, down, or biker vest. It's the lightweight, faux photographer's or fisherman's vest that some guys wear for CCW, and that even more wear for easily moved "cover garments" in competition.

The term "shoot-me-first vest" is often used to describe these, as I am sure you are aware.

Yes, I think I understand. I've even noticed one person wearing one one hot Saturday at the gas station. That, combined with his wary look, was sort of a giveaway.

For what it's worth, I can consistently draw and fire accurately in 1.6 seconds from either a cross breed holster or a Comp Tac inside-the-waistband holster at my 4 o'clock.

But with what as a cover garment and accurately at what distance? 1.6 is good if you are having to remove several layers to get to your gun, or if you are wearing a tucked shirt...

30 feet, 8 inch plate, Texas-tucked T-shirt with an open (unbuttoned) shirt or a Blazer/sport coat over it.

I don't know how good it is, but it's what I know I can do consistently.

I wear Docker pants and Tommy Bahama shirts, no problem CC'ing my XD40 either IWB or OWB. The old saying is that you must dress for the occassion.

MLeake concur with use of regular clothing in your competitions. When I shot IPSA, i competed using my duty weapon and rig. A lawyer I shot with allways wore an old business suit and dress shoes.

We never won and rarely placed. We did improve our skills and confidence in ourselves, weapons and equipment.
