How to roll a Terrance Hill Slap Draw

If you've ever seen, Trinity is Still my Name, you know what I'm talking about but here's a link to the example.

Since the intent is to shake a person instead of wounding them, would you count this as an agillity trick? Intimidation? Would you require the person to have quick draw to do this manuver?

It seems like a perfect move for a Savage World game.

Thoughts?

Looks like either an Agility trick or an Intimidate ToW, either way with a +2 bonus for a good description that includes the use of the Quick Draw edge. That's how I'd run it.

It looks like an Intimidation check with a lot of style and a +2 circumstance bonus for including a Quick Draw pistol (repeatedly).

Doing it twice makes me think it's part of a Social Conflict or Dramatic Task to convince ... everyone that a gunfight would be certain death against the character, and make the foe back down from his intended challenge to a lethal duel.

Intimidation? This is clearly a Taunt.

Either works.
Intimidation:
Intimidation is the art of frightening an opponent with sheer force of will, veiled or overt threats, or sometimes just really big guns.

Taunt:
Taunt is a Test of Wills attack against a person’s pride through ridicule, cruel jokes, or one-upmanship.

Definitely elements of threat and big guns, but at least as much one-upmanship and ridicule.

Given that this seems to be a trademark ability of the character, having Strong Willed would be appropriate.
