** Presumably he couldn't psychologically resist the extra bit of drama, especially since as mentioned in the book, "he had never hunted one armed before. He would have thoroughly enjoyed it." Clarice, [[SanityHasAdvantages not being batshit insane]], was more practical as well as more professional, since she's a (mostly) trained law enforcement officer, while Gumb has no military or law enforcement training we know of.
*** It's stated in the book that Gumb does this to scare his victims, who now know what's about to happen next. Of course, all his previous victims weren't armed.

* In a [[TruthInTelevision real life counter]], UN soldiers on peace-keeping missions are often told not to leave a round chambered. This is partly because a [[IJustShotMarvinInTheFace Negligent Discharge]] around nervous and questionably friendly civilians makes for really bad PR, but also because the sound of a whole squad working the cocking handles of their weapons simultaneously is a very, ''very'' potent tool for de-escalating a confrontation without resorting to force.
** In the German army it's encouraged that even when you have to have a round chambered for security reasons (heightened alarm level for instance) you should first cock the gun again when encountering trouble. You will eject the round currently chambered unused, but it's better than actually having to fire.

* This is one argument for the use of pump-action shotguns in home defense: any burglar who hears that distinctive racking when he enters the house will vacate the premises with alacrity.

* With 10 Charisma and the right perk, you can do this (minus the clicking) to any lower leveled human/synth enemy in ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}}''. Higher ranks of the perk allow you to give more specific commands to them and even force them to follow you around.
