listen to what sweet t has to say. many newer shooters are more focused on the strong hand, and don't really pay much attention to what the support hand is doing until the gun is out of the holster. it helped me to spend some time consciously moving my weak hand at the same time so as my strong hand gets a grip on the gun, my weak hand is right in front of my stomach (wrist just about touching just under my sternum) and fingers already extended forward waiting for the gun to show up, and as soon as the gun is there, the weak hand can start getting a grip while driving the gun out to the target. Basically just think a lot more about what your weak hand is doing during the draw, and do it all sooner. your strong hand is probably pretty subconscious by now, so you can pay extra attention to your weak hand until it also becomes subconscious.
i think it's probably pretty normal to be about as quick on the sight picture with strong-hand vs freestyle, but i can pull the trigger a little more quickly and accurately freestyle.
Exactly, most people don't really think about the support hand does, not nearly as much as they agonize over the strong hand. I think because usually the only advice you tend to hear for the support hand is 'grip really hard'.
Watching good steel challenge shooters helped me. That shit is all about nailing the draw because their time to first shot is like .75. So they muscle both hands down to the gun, strong hand goes onto the beavertail, weak hand by the gun (some people index on the belt or their belly, depends how fat you are I guess) or hang in the air by the holster. When gun clears the holster the weak hand is grabbing it. They grab it down there as opposed to up in front of the chest because it gives you the most time to fix a poor grip if you need to. It should be the same as a SHO draw because you are forming the grip on the way up and not pausing at any point.
It also helped me a lot to develop an index for my support hand when I grip it on the gun. I used to push my strong hand into my weak hand (back of my strong fingers pressing into the weak fingers first) and roll my palm onto the grip. I had a lot of problems with that, sometimes end up with the palm too far forwards so I'm mostly wasting grip strength on squeezing my fingers together, or press on the mag release with my palm. I started practicing by indexing the heel of my weak hand to the heel of my strong hand and rolling forwards. This always let me cover the most grip with my weak palm and have my fingers in the same place so I could maximize force on the gun.
It might feel weird to practice a new draw but see if it works for you after a few hours of reps.
