When it was only a few yards away, Twin shot the bear with her .22 caliber Cooey Ace 1 rifle [[labelnote:note]]There are conflicting accounts of whether the rifle was chambered in .22 Long or .22 Long Rifle ammo[[/labelnote]] and dropped the beast with a single headshot. However, as .22 caliber ammo isn't exactly an ideal defense round, she made sure to shoot another 6 rounds into the grizzly to make sure it was dead.

* The robbers in ''{{Film/Heat}}'' shoot their victims twice in the chest and then once in the head, in a manner similar to Vincent from ''Collateral'' (Michael Mann directed both movies in general). Detective Vincent Hanna notes this as one of several things that marks them out as serious professionals.

\n* ''[[Literature/HonorHarrington Honorverse]]''
** It's not called the Mozambique Drill, but Victor Cachat favors two rounds center-of-mass and a third aimed round to the head.
** If Thandi Palane is an accurate representation, the Solarian Marines teach the double tap. During the MuggingTheMonster incident in ''Cauldron of Ghosts'', her "always double tap" conditioning is strong enough that she ends up blowing limbs off the people she's been ordered to capture alive.

\n* In ''The Killer Ascendant'', a former Federal Air Marshall shoots Literature/JohnRain twice in the chest, but the rounds are stopped by his BulletproofVest. Fans of the series who were Federal Air Marshalls informed the author Barry Eisler that this trope was incorrect, as procedure was to keep firing until the target was no longer a threat.
