shoot a fair one

shoot a fair one
 v. phr.— «There was this time, last year, when my boy Duzer was supposed to shoot a fair one with another kid in school, so my little crew got together to keep it a fair fight.…I saw kids pullling shanks and hammers out of their JanSports. I knew this wasn’t going to be no fair fight, fake gangstas put that out of style trying to find the easy way out.» —by Juan Azize Aug. 20, 1998. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
