* Subverted in ''Film/TheRiverWild''. Gail has Wade at gunpoint but decides to spare him and fires the revolver's last bullet into the air, [[UngratefulBastard so he orders Terry to kill her family while he kills her]]. [[spoiler: Turns out, there were ''two'' bullets left, and she kills him with the last one.]]

* Spectacularly averted by the recent case of one [[http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/south_asia/8279929.stm Rukhsana Kauser in Kashmir]]. When six heavily-armed men burst into her home and began beating her parents, Rukhsana and her brother attacked the men with axes; Rukhsana stunned the bandits' leader, snatched his AK from him, shot him ''twelve times'', then she and her brother drove off his surviving accomplices after a protracted firefight.

* In ''Film/DieHardWithAVengeance'' Zeus (another Creator/SamuelLJackson character) is holding up the entire bad guy parade with a gun, at which point Simon Gruber walks up to him, promptly explains that Creator/SamuelLJackson of all people forgot to turn the safety off, then captures him.

* Played with ''{{Lost}}'': Kate is in a bank during an armed robbery. After a skirmish, she ends up holding a gun on the ringleader, but the safety is on. As the other hostages call out to shoot the bad guy, she yells, "I don't know how to use a gun!" The bad guy takes the gun back and drags her into another room, ostensibly to beat her up. That's when we learn that [[spoiler:Kate ''masterminded'' the bank robbery, is playing the inside woman, and most definitely knows how to use a gun]].

* In ''Film/JackReacher'', the namesake protagonist is attacked by a pair of bumbling criminals inside a narrow bathroom and hallway. After dispatching them, a third criminal points a gun to his head. The protagonist calmly turns around and informs the criminal that he should shoot now. Naturally, the criminal is quickly disarmed immediately after.

* A version appears in ''[[VideoGame/{{Uncharted}} Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception]]'', where Drake points a gun at Sully, Drake's father figure, whom Drake had recently seen gunned down and killed, reappears and looking unharmed. Sully plucks the gun out of Drake's hand, and flicks him on the nose, telling him never to do it again.
