* Happens during the arrest of the villain in ''Mystery in the Channel'' by Creator/FreemanWillsCrofts. Definitely not painless, though -- the man loses his thumb.

* ''Film/UnderWesternStars'': We couldn't have Creator/RoyRogers, the hero of a kid's cowboy movie actually kill a sheriff's deputy, after all. (The sheriff is working for the evil water company while Roy is leading the heroic cattle rancher resistance.)

* In all three Wild West stages of the NES game ''Day Dreamin' Davey'', you'll face off with gun-slinging bandits at the end of each stage, where Davey has to blast the guns off of their hands before they shoot at you. The higher the Wild West stage number is, the more bandits' guns you'll shoot out of their hands at the end.

* This can be done in the ''Franchise/MetalGear'' games from ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid2'' onwards. Once you blast a gun from an enemy's hands, he'll draw his sidearm, although you'll notice that his hand is shaking and he's bleeding.

* There's a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6QCiGQjtqxc widely-televised incident]] where a man waving a handgun around is [[SuicideByCop threatening suicide in the street]]. He sits down on a lawn chair, casually drops his gun hand so it's dangling beneath him, and then looks at his hand in shock because a police sniper neatly blew the gun out of his grasp with minimal injury. Later on in a program concerning the first example, the sniper who pulled off the shot is interviewed. He stresses how lucky and unusual the shot was, and complains about people who expect snipers to do it all the time, who tell him, "The Lone Ranger does it every week!" The shot was so great that even the wannabe suicide congratulated the sniper. The remains of the gun were also kept as a trophy.

* [[TheGunslinger Teana]] manages to do the "down the barrel" variation on [[HollywoodCyborg Wendi's]] {{BFG}} in ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaStrikerS'', causing the energy building up inside it to prematurely explode, cancelling all the energy shots Wendi had prepared and stunning her long enough to leave her wide open for the finishing blow.

** It is thought that, if Philips's death was indeed an accident, the gun being shot out of his hands was an indirect cause for it; an earlier round had hit him in the other hand (hence why he was using his pistol at all; his rifle had just jammed, and his hand was too injured for him to fix the issue) and so he attempted to rack the slide of the gun with his mouth... with [[AteHisGun predictable results.]]
