** In "Rabbit in a Snowstorm," we see Turk Barrett's incompetency as a firearms dealer in the sense that he is shown unloading a crate of guns that have been transported magazines-in.

** Amy tells the zombie movie geeks that they have no business carrying guns around because they keep unwittingly pointing them at each other. One of them has a camera mounted to the barrel of his gun, and he points the gun to his face to deliver a message to the camera.

At another point Amy mentally notes how he's pointed his combination gun/camera directly at the back of the head of the person in front of him.

Added DiffLines:

* Mostly averted in ''Manga/IAmAHero''. There's some RecklessGunUsage and an unnerving scene where [[spoiler:Hiromi points a gun at Oda, although she gets called out on it]]. Characters who actually know how to use firearms generally use them as safely as possible given the circumstances, including taking into account things that series like this usually ignore because of RuleOfCool (like the noise from a gunshot in an enclosed space, and the fouling that would inevitably come from firing a shotgun so much).

* ''Film/InBruges'': Ken is very careful with his guns. Harry locks his guns away when he's at home so his kids can't get at them. Ray is a bit more careless, but as he's young, reckless, and a bit suicidal, this is in character for him (and he never points a gun at anyone he doesn't want to kill, though his occasional poor aim when he does want to kill someone tends to get him in trouble). At one point a man tries to rob Ray with a gun loaded with blanks -- Ray wrestles the gun off him and fires it directly into the man's eye. The blanks leave him partially blind.

* ''Film/PointBreak1991''. Keanu Reeves' character, unable to bring himself to shoot Patrick Swayze's character to stop him escaping empties his gun into the sky in the middle of the very heavily populated Los Angeles. Unless bullets are fired ''precisely'' vertically, they can fall to earth with sufficient force to kill or injure - a fact that Reeves' character, an FBI agent, should have been well aware of.

* Mixed with AwesomeMadeMundane and {{BFG}} in a throwaway gag from ''Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross'' -- In said gag, a Valkyrie pilot uses his 122mm [[GatlingGood Gatling gunpod]] to light a cigarette for a Zentradi soldier working with the UN Spacy. Outside of the [[IJustShotMarvinInTheFace obvious problem]] with this... how was he even expecting to light the damn thing rather than just turn it into a blizzard of shredded tobacco?

**In "Rabbit in a Snowstorm," we see Turk Barrett's incompetency as a firearms dealer in the sense that he is shown unloading a crate of guns that have been transported magazines-in.
**In the second episode of season 2, it's implied Frank Castle's shot to Matt's mask at the end of the previous episode was in fact a warning shot, not intended to kill. This "warning" shot knocked Matt out for hours, left him with severe disorientation and temporary deafness in between bouts of SensoryOverload, with a long delayed DeadlyNosebleed, this isn't even justified in-story, since Matt's clearly dealing with a major concussion.

* An aversion is actually a plot point in ''Renegade Force'' (also called ''Rogue Force'' or ''Counterforce''). An [[MagicEnhanceButton enhanced still]] from a video recovered at the scene of a commando-style attack reveals a shooter's finger being kept conspicuously outside of the trigger guard, providing further evidence that the attackers are professionally trained... and possibly vigilante cops.
