In featherless culture, being “quick on the draw” basically means you can grab your weapon faster than the other guy can grab his.
Of course, such awkward and artificial self defense measures are only necessary because featherless beings lack certain natural advantages (namely a beak, wings, and claws).
But when you have feathers, there is no need to “draw” anything as a sign of strength because you are naturally fearsome.
Rather, you can just show yourself and your prey will quickly become frozen in fear.
Then you can finish the job with your signature technique: “quick to the shred.”
