I know that it is a saying where cowboys can draw their pistol, but this does not refer to them hand-drawing their pistol (on paper, perhaps).
But can we say that shots are drawn (as in, gunshots)? I know that in this case, shots can be fired, but likewise, a pistol can also be fired, so... yeah.
I did some research, and given the definition of draw (to pull or drag, in this case), then I don't think shots can be drawn, but I have heard the saying "pull shots" before. My friend Matt used to play golf, and I think I might have heard it there, but to me, "shots drawn" sounds fine. Perhaps hearing how shots can be "pulled" in golf (i.e. tee shots) had an influence, but I wanna know if shots can actually be drawn, or if we could even say that.
An anagram of the third world war is dwelt horrid wrath (one that I found), so I decided to try and make an anagram of the second world war, where I got two options:
Now screw old hatred
We're cold, shot drawn
I know the first one makes sense (with some informal use of the word screw) but I am not so sure about the second anagram.
And that's why I asked this question. Can we say that shots could be drawn, or not really? If we can't, would we just stick to shots fired, or is there another word that could replace "fired"?
Thank you in advance :)
