*** Bonus points; there were seven punks, and he fired the gun ten times -- once into the air to blind the first punk with the shell casing -- and still left one standing. Due to the small size of the weapon the first punk shoved in his face, it was probably ''[[ItWorksBetterWithBullets empty]]''.[[note]]IRL it was a blanks-only [[http://www.imfdb.org/wiki/Person_of_Interest_-_Season_1 "non-gun"]] issued by propmasters to untrained extras.[[/note]]

* Early in the pilot episode, Homeless Bum Reese is harassed by a group of lowlifes punks. He hands them their asses. Later, when he needs weapons, he tracks down the same punks to a gun deal, corrects their gun handling ("You're holding it sideways. That means you can't aim."), takes them all down in about 10 seconds ''with one of their own guns'' and simply gathers up what he needs from the pile of ordnance on the table. Their ringleader is left standing, dumbfounded. Reese tells him to get some safety training and leaves. ''And he never once raises his voice.''

* "No Good Deed" Despite getting wiped out by Reese in the end, the ISA hit squad acquitted themselves very well in their mission to kill Henry Peck. When Reese is escaping with Peck in a cab, they set up a nearly successful ambush with their team sniper disabling the taxi cab by detonating the fuel tank with a single shot.
* [[spoiler:"Firewall", Root's plan to capture Harold, become a POI, get into a situation where John and Harold are separated and take the latter hostage, utterly outwitting the normally ProperlyParanoid Team Machine]]

** Reese finds out the latest number (which Harold hid from him knowing his past) is a victim of domestic abuse, fleeing her husband, a U.S. Marshall. BerserkButton ''thoroughly'' pressed, [[RefugeInAudacity Reese casually strolls into the local U.S. Marshall's office]] where the deputy is using the Marshall's resources to track down his wife and beats the hell out of him and two other deputies, and then threatens to kill him if he comes after his wife again, offhandedly knocking out another deputy on his way out the door.

* Halfway through "Firewall", after Fusco and Carter discover they were WorkingTheSameCase, they come to the rescue, arresting all the HR guys on site.
** Later, when they're all chasing a car with some HR mooks who were able to get out of the parking garage, Reese tells Carter to slow down....and detonates the explosives that were kept in the HR vehicle beforehand killing the occupants of the car. The utterly shocked looks of Carter and Fusco who DidntSeeThatComing make it even better.
