* Happens in the ''VideoGame/MonkeyIsland'' series, albeit twice: once in ''VideoGame/TheCurseOfMonkeyIsland'', when [=LeChuck=] raises his sword to kill Guybrush and Guybrush's future-wife Elaine shoots the sword off of [=LeChuck=]'s hand and knocks it onto the mast of ''the Death Starfish''; and once in ''TalesOfMonkeyIsland'', [[spoiler:when she, as his [[EeriePaleSkinnedBrunette demon bride]], does the same to her undead husband (Guybrush) by raising her Cutlass of Kaflu to kill him, but this time Winslow is the shooter in knocking the Cutlass onto the rail of [=LeChuck=]'s ship]].

* 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.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/JackieChanAdventures'' and ''WesternAnimation/{{WITCH}}'' crossover ''Fanfic/{{Kage}}'', Jade uses her new Ninja Shadowkhan abilities to make two of her enemies to drop their weapons by throwing shuriken at their hands, injuring them only enough to cause superficial scratches.

* Subverted in ''Film/TheQuickAndTheDead'' where it's done as a KickTheDog instead of a non-lethal means of ending the duel. "Ace" Hanlon boasts that he can kill a man [[GunsAkimbo with either hand]], and did so while killing the notorious Terrence Brothers. Unfortunately Herod, the man he's about to duel, [[BecauseImJonesy was the one who actually killed them]], so he shows his contempt by shooting Hanlon in his gun hand, then inviting him to draw with the other hand, which promptly gets a bullethole through it as well.

A character shoots a weapon out of another's hand. The one whose weapon was blasted, however, almost [[OnlyAFleshWound never gets hurt]]. Indeed, this technique is often used by [[TheCape heroic]] [[TheGunslinger gunslingers]] (who may have an aversion to just shooting the enemy) to [[ThouShaltNotKill subdue their enemies without killing them]].

If the gun is somehow still usable despite having been hit by a slug of lead and copper traveling in excess of 800 feet per second, then it's a case of MagicBullets.

* Zig-zagged to oblivion in ''ComicBook/{{Tex|Willer}}''. Disarming shots on an enemy wielding a revolver are invariably delivered to the hand, and the target ends up temporarily, if not permanently, crippled. On the other hand, a hostile wielding a long gun gets the gun itself shot out of his grasp, which makes sense considering it's a significantly bigger target than a revolver.
