Never to telegraph that you're carrying

Your concealed carry firearm trainer instructs you never to telegraph to any assailant that you're carrying a firearm until the moment you draw and shoot. Even legally, if you are a concealed carry holder and you break your pistol from its little home in your well-worn inside-the-waistband holster and draw the gun to your shooting position, your only job, you're told, is to point and shoot, as best you can, at center-mass, directly into the chest cavity of the attacker. No back and forth witty banter or "you'd better calm down because I'm armed" as it's believed that once an attacker knows you have a gun, the more likely that attacker will take that gun away from you, you dope, while you're brandishing is or holding it on the target. Why?
