Got rid of false information.
* Some theorists hold that the sound of a shotgun hits the same parts of the brain that a ''lion roar'' did for early man. As such, it's recommended that people keeping one (the shotgun, not the lion) for home defense, should keep it unloaded, since the sound might just make the intruder either [[OhCrap freeze]] or [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere retreat]]. [[IJustShotMarvinInTheFace Plus, it's safer.]]

His younger self repeats this action in ''Film/XMenDaysOfFuturePast'', but with the firearms of the Secret Service agents who are assigned to protect President Nixon and his cabinet.

** The 20th Anniversary Edition of ''TabletopGame/MageTheAscension'' even includes a Rote that allows you to draw on the resonance of a cocked gun (or a drawn sword) and channel it into attacking more targets with more force; by incorporating a Mind effect, you can also get someone to stand down with the sound alone.

Misuse. Developers Foresight is when the game has a response for unlikely player actions.
* Averted in ''VideoGame/HaloReach''. Only the first time you draw your weapon, be it a pistol, an assault rifle, or anything in between, does your character cock it. [[TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything Every subsequent time]], or until you drop the weapon and pick it up again, you'll simply heft it to its ready position; the most action you'll take is flipping the safety off if necessary.
