** Also, Mello [[UnorthodoxHolstering holsters his gun]] (literally) [[PantsPositiveSafety in the front of his tight leather pants]]. Similarly, Matt places a gun temporarily down the collar of his vest, though at least that one was only a smoke gun.

** Host Eric was being harassed by a higher-ranking soldier during a tour in Iraq, while his unit had set up in a penthouse. The officer wanted a round in the chamber of the LMG that Eric was in charge of, but it was an open-bolt weapon, meaning that it would only have a round in the chamber when the trigger is squeezed. Eric now admits he shouldn't have, but he decided to demonstrate. Putting a couple of holes in the wall.

** This trope is otherwise averted in the series; Koro-sensei even tells the students in the eponymous classroom to be careful with the BB bullets they're using or they might shoot an eye out.

** This is a holdover from the "double bullet catch" finale of their stage show, in which they routinely go over the basics of gun safety and warn the audience to cover their ears before firing.

The Four Rules of gun safety:

# Always treat the gun as if it was loaded
# Never point a gun at something you do not intend to shoot
# Keep your fingers away from the safety and the trigger until you are in position and ready to shoot
# Always be aware of what is around and behind your target

* ''Webcomic/GrrlPower'': After Sydney reads up on gun safety, she asks why a bunch of superheroes fully capable of blowing up tanks with a finger carry guns. Maxima demonstrates the intimidation value when she points a shotgun at Sydney, who immediately runs for cover. In the next strip, it's lampshaded that you're ''never'' supposed to point a gun at something you don't intend to shoot; even if you know it's unloaded, you might be wrong (even more so in a world with teleportation and other weird powers). Maxima only gets away with it because if by some improbable sequence of events the gun does go off, [[SuperSpeed she can catch the bullet before anyone is hurt]].

* ''TotalRecall'': the security team that ambushes Quaid in the Martian reactor surround him in a circle and all start blazing away with fully automatic weapons and ''shotguns''. Which is remarkably stupid, even before the subsequent reveal that it was just a hologram of Quaid and so they all should have killed one another anyway.

* One scene of [[Film/MadMax Max's]] family life has him preparing for a shift while his infant son seems to be playing with his service revolver. We know you're mad, but, seriously...
