- "The fast draw is a bit overrated….sure it sells holoflicks, but in real life? I’ve seen more go down that way than just about any other. Sure, speed counts, but so does accuracy. It doesn't do you any good if you shoot the floor five times while your opponent puts the bead on you for good....the real test is the look before the guns come out. When you look someone directly in the eyes, that's what really separates the professionals from the amateurs."
- ―Han Solo, to historian Voren Na'al
The fast draw was a type of gun duel move, which entailed outpacing a rival gunman and shooting him/her. It was considered popular enough to be used in holofilms. However, it did have drawbacks that would have made it too dangerous to utilize: Namely, it resulted in a decrease of accuracy for speed. Han Solo, when talking to the historian Voren Na'al about gun duel styles, explained that the fast draw from his observations resulted in more duelists employing the fast draw ending up killed in gunfights than other gun duel styles.
