So I was out to eat last week at my girls favorite restaurant ( Friendly's). We get seated and as anyone knows who has eaten at a Friendly's most of them have booth style seating. I was thinking how would one draw his firearm and bring it into use in such a small space? Now this topic is more so asking how someone who carry's a full size firearm would do this as I think you would have more then enough room with a compact. But it also gets me thinking about another concern and that is your family. If your seated in the front of the restaurant you will be unable to get up from the booth and engage the threat/threats Your only choice should you choose to act would be to draw and engage seated from the booth. That brings into play your family as they will be in the line of fire should the threat/threats return fire at you. Should you act and risk getting your family killed?
