comment Antonym of verb “holster”
I think this is the key distinction, and it’s one of body language and intent. When I hear unholster, I infer the gunman’s finger is not on the trigger, and the safety may even be on. When I hear draw, I infer the gunman’s finger is on the trigger, the safety is off, and he may even be aiming. It’s similar to unsheathe versus draw for a sword or knife.

comment What is the meaning of “Dick” when it is a person's name?
@JonathonWisnoski: They don’t rhyme. Dick is a “rhyming nickname” for Richard. Rhyming names are described in the Name Nerds link in the answer. I also added more detail (“Richard → Rick → Dick”) to clarify.
