Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/TheMrPotatoHeadShow'': It's implied that the original version of the cowboy episode ended with one of these, as there are camera angles sizing up both sheriff!Mr. Potato Head and outlaw!Johnny right before their showdown. (The closeups revealing that their holsters are empty did not stop this.)

* ''Film/TheQuickAndTheDead'' is full of this, being as it is about a quick draw competition. Notably, Keith David's character doesn't have a conventional holster -- his gun is attached to a pivot on his belt (a [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bridgeport_rig Bridgeport Rig]]), letting him fire from the hip without drawing it.

Added DiffLines:

* Paladin in ''Series/HaveGunWillTravel''. In one episode, he's forced into a gunfight and wins. That doesn't make him this trope. The enemy was a professional gunslinger who's stated to have killed twelve men. That's still not what makes him fit this trope. No, what makes him fit this trope is that he let the professional draw first, and ''still'' managed to kill his opponent before the man even got off a shot.
