The Myth of the Quick Draw
September 7, 2010 8:05 AM Subscribe
I read an article a couple of years ago, I think it was written by Larry McMurtry, about the myth of the quick draw. Essentially the writer said that no one in their right mind would approach an enemy with their weapon holstered and the quick draw is a myth of Western fiction. I've done some searching of databases and online and I can't find the dang thing.

This article could have appeared in the NY Times or the New York Review of Books and may not necessarily have been written by McMurtry.
