— I fleshed you out as some blow-up-the-bad-guy-with-a-happy-grin he-man type. But now I realise that you're the moody-troubled-past-gunslinger-who-will-only-draw-when-he-must type.
Demolition Man, film

Does "draw" imply "draw the gun (out)"?
Thanks.

    Yes. This kind of stereotypical old gunslinger doesn't want to keep on fighting the young ones who challenge him, because of his reputation, but he will if they force him to. (And of course the young one regrets it.)
