A good reminder to practice as realistically as possible. To me, it's like the difference between practicing martial arts/self defense techniques in a gi versus street wear. Practicing drawing from concealment in the gear and clothes one actually wears is a good start. If one has a cane or some other assistive device, that should be incorporated, too. Dry fire practice can be a useful supplement/substitution if live fire range practice can't be done realistically. Every once in a while, I'll have a bag or a plastic cup in one hand before my drill, and practice dropping it. I've even put my phone on airplane mode and practiced dialing 911 after a drill. *waits for mocking laughter*
