2. The Holster and The Draw 
  a. Hands should be kept off of the holstered firearm except when drawing or shooting. Do not use the grip of a holstered pistol as a resting-place for a hand, forearm or elbow. 
  b. A wide variety of holsters are available with different safety features. Use of any holster should be demonstrated and discussed as appropriate. When drawing the firearm from the holster the following technique may be used. This technique will change depending on the type of holster used. (Right-handed example given). 
    (1) RELAX. Do not look at holstered firearm. Eyes should remain on the target. 
    (2) Set right hand down on rear strap of the firearm and establish a firm grip. Keep the "trigger finger" out of the trigger guard. 
    (3) When the muzzle has cleared the holster, raise the firearm to a horizontal position. 
Instructors should explain and demonstrate the draw often to ensure that students understand the techniques. Also, answer all questions and continue to stress firearm safety. 


STRESS SAFETY, CONTROL and SMOOTHNESS, NOT SPEED
