* In the JohnWoo movie ''Film/HardBoiled'', [[spoiler:the character Mad Dog]] does this to [[spoiler:Johnny Wong]] in order to stop [[spoiler:Johnny's psychotic massacre of a bunch of patients standing between him and Alan with a Mini-Uzi, just before calling him on his actions. Even though this [[RedemptionEqualsDeath gets him killed for his trouble]],]] it is a great moment for Mad Dog.

** And in "Roberta's Blood Trail", Balalaika has her snipers shoot the weapons from three BadAss ActionGirls. Two Hands is noticeably pissed given her liking for GunsAkimbo means she's now useless until the wounds heal.

* Happens in ''Film/BlackHawkDown''. One Ranger is hit by a stray bullet, losing his weapon and a finger in the process. That would be Scott Galentine, who lost his thumb in the real life incident the movie is based on. Just like the movie, it was preserved (sewn into his skin), his hand was bandaged and taped, and [[{{Badass}} he picked up his rifle and continued firing]].

* In ''Film/TheMagnificentSeven'', a bunch of racists blocking the burial of an Indian are disabled this way. It's mostly to prove [[{{Badass}} how awesome]] Steve [=McQueen=] and Yul Brynner's characters are, though it's played with a bit more realism than many examples: the men thus disarmed are visibly injured and bleeding afterwards.

* There's a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6QCiGQjtqxc widely-televised incident]] where a man waving a handgun around is [[StopOrIShootMyself 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.

* In ''VideoGame/PulpAdventures'', some of the pistol-wielding heroes have an ability named "Trick Shot", which is described as doing this. Ingame, its effect is to temporarily prevent the targent to use his abilities.
