* In the {{Manga/HighschoolOfTheDead}} fanfic [[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/6612117/1/World-of-the-Dead World of the Dead]], at one point [[spoiler:Saya Takagi]] places a Luger P08 into their mouth, pointing upwards, and pulls the trigger. Not out of a truly suicidal notion, but just to prove a point. It's seconds later revealed to be unloaded, but that's still unaccountably reckless.

* ''Film/UndercoverBrother''. After Undercover Brother grabs a shotgun away from Conspiracy Brother, he carelessly swings it around, pointing it at Sista Girl, Conspiracy Brother and the Chief. As an expert and experienced combatant he should have known better.

* Averted and played straight in a crossover between the Punisher and Witchblade. Frank is after a murderer who's being transported in a police van, and manages to get the vehicle stopped, then inside the van with the prisoner and the police officer guarding him. Frank orders the plainclothes police officer to hand over his gun. The officer replies that they're in a van transporting a prisoner, and carrying a gun isn't allowed. In many, but not all circumstances, this is TruthInTelevision. Frank, however, is genre savvy as hell and isn't buying it.

* In ''Film/BatmanVSupermanDawnOfJustice'', a rookie police officer panics when seeing Comicbook/{{Batman}} for the first time, and fires wildly at the [[HorrifyingHero vigilante]], almost shooting his partner in the face. Said partner is ''not'' amused.

* ''GoneWithTheBlastwave'' is especially jarring about this considering that all characters are soldiers... [[TooDumbToLive Life-threateningly incompetent]], [[AxCrazy homicidally psychotic]], [[ShellShockedVeteran suicidally depressed and/or just plain apathetic]] [[ComedicSociopathy Comically]] {{Sociopathic Soldier}}s, sure, [[ArmedFarces but soldiers none the less]].

:: 99 fortunately shows good discipline by not holding her finger on the trigger. Creator/AnneHathaway [[ThrowItIn ad-libbed]] the scene.

*** Subtly played with the episode "Lo Scandalo." Malory, a spymaster and experienced former spy herself, points her recently fired weapon ''at her own neck'' to [[ItMakesSenseInContext demonstrate the difference between a catsuit and a zentai.]] Lana is predictably alarmed and takes the gun from her, checking to make sure it isn't loaded. Considering Malory had just witnessed assassins murder a long-time lover in her own apartment, one could understand her being too shaken up to observe proper gun safety rules. [[spoiler: That is until we discover that Malory, [[MagnificentBastard Magnificent Bitch]] that she is, killed the man herself and only faked her BSOD and RecklessGunUsage to divert Archer and Lana's suspicions and manipulate them into helping her get rid of the body.]]
