* Used in more or less every single western comic book in the '60s. If the writers were feeling edgy enough, the hero might occationally shoot the villain in the hand or shoulder, but shots intended to kill or seriously harm were a big no-no.

* "[[Literature/OctopussyAndTheLivingDaylights The Living Daylights]]" by Creator/IanFleming, a ''Literature/JamesBond'' short story, averts the bit about not getting hurt severely. Bond estimates the woman he shot may be permanently crippled, and if she recovers physically, she's likely to be spooked for the rest of her life. At that, the only reason he didn't kill her outright was that he thought she was cute. He also gets a ballocking from his superiors for putting an agent at risk (the woman he shot was a Soviet sniper about to kill the agent) as he delayed his shot to sight on her arm instead.

** Earlier in the novel, it's explicitly stated why they shouldn't do this: They always assume the bad guy has a backup weapon, and that backup is often a hand grenade. Hence the policy of [[BoomHeadshot shooting enemies in the head]].

* One of the gunmen of the North Hollywood Shoot-out had his gun shot by police towards the end of the incident. It was more likely a stray shot, and after he had picked it up he looked at it, and, depending on interpretation, either accidentally or intentionally shot himself.
** it is thought that, if his death was indeed an accident, it was an indirect cause of the gun being shot out of his hands; apparently, the stray round that disarmed him left hhis hand injured, and so he attempted to rack the slide of the gun with his mouth..with [[AteHisGun predictable results.]]

* In ''LightNovel/AsobiNiIkuYo'', thanks to the use of anti-matter bullets that don't affect organic material, a hostage situation is quickly defused by shooting and vaporizing the gun in the shooter's hand.
