so by drawing 2nd and firing immediately, you may surprise the BG.

If you watch robbery videos, the BG sometimes gets focused on the cash drawer,
and he thinks he has everyone under control. That's when he very well may not
notice your draw.

YMMV.

It isn't always a losing proposition, like this one from August (with video).

For a guy who never shot a gun before, he did great drawing on a drawn
gun, connecting with a COM shot, and ending the threat.

Arms discourage and keep the invader in awe, and preserve order in the world as well as property...
Horrid mischief would ensue were the law-abiding deprived of them.
