Notes About Self-Protective Gun-Carrying:
It's hard to outdraw an already-drawn gun.
Remember to nimbly move aside, as you go for your own weapon.
If you're "jumped," or if someone has begun to beat on you, you also have to move, or roll, aside as you attempt to present and fire.
Whatever you do, don't "stand your ground." You'll die.
...And remember what Groucho said, about why he went elephant hunting in Alabama: Because the Tuscaloosa!
