It means to draw your pistol in defense.

eta: kind of a form of intimidation

Thats all? Everybody makes it seem like its meant for intimidation for people being an asshole to you.

it is. I tried fixing my post.

Okay scenerio,
Your walking to your car and a homeless man comes asking for money you ask him to leave he dosent so you draw dawn on him... It's kind of a joke for being a hot head.

OOOOOOO ok now I understand (I think). I feel stupid now.

If you mess up and do it at an inappropriate time you could really cause yourself a major hassle.

I forget who it was that told me this, but it made sense to me. It went something like this.........All of my life I have recommended avoidence......de-escalation..........but if that doesn't work fight like hell to stay breathing!!!

I can assure that if you have ever had to do it...or even taken it a step further.....you would remember it.

And would never be flip about it again.

I've drawn down on so many people, hell, I couldn't even begin to count. Although, 11+ years in Law Enforcement affords you that opportunity.

Other than the ARCOM thread, the first time I heard the phrase was in an early episode of Deadwood.

The real question is not whether he is at a carwash or not. It's whether he is at a carwash AND is a lowlife.
