Added DiffLines:

* A United Earth Kataphrakt in episode 4 of ''Anime/AldnoahZero'' fires its 75mm assault rifle one-handed. Particularly notable since this is the only time in the series it happens; even HumongousMecha normally need to use two arms for their rifles.

* Balthier and Basch from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXII'' fire Ivalice's rifle- and shotgun-sized guns one-handed with no ill effects. That's despite the fact that they otherwise hold them in a two-handed grip.

Added DiffLines:

* Firing live shells through a pump-action shotgun with only one hand is not only hard to do safely for smaller shooters, but it will also fling the action open from the recoil, which can cause the next shell to fall out of the receiver if you aren't careful; quite the opposite of looking cool. Movie shotguns don't have these problems because blanks don't produce nearly enough muzzle energy to push back the bolt.

* In The Borne Supremacy, Jason Borne is unexpectedly hit with a gunshot. Cut and camera pan back to Krillik, standing on a bridge that turns out to overlook the walkway where Borne was hit an unknown distance away, holding the gun one-handed. The most memorable scene in that movie for this Troper.

* In the booklet of ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaStrikerS [[AudioAdaptation Sound Stage X]]'', all art of Teana with the [[HandCannon Cross Mirage's Blazer Mode]] show her wielding it one-handed. A little weird since she usually uses her gun with two hands when she's not going GunsAkimbo or using her other hand for something else.

* The Spy's Revolver in ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2''. The Engineer also holds his pistol one-handed, but the Scout (who wields an identical pistol, albeit with less ammo in reserve) uses two.
** The Spy actually needs to fire one handed, otherwise he wouldn't be able to see how much charge his {{Invisibility|Cloak}} [[ShoePhone watch]] has left or hold the Dead Ringer.

When a hero carries a handgun, he or she will tend to wield it and sometimes fire it in one hand. Perfect for still photo opportunities where the shooter's arm is bent above and behind their head and the gun is brought down to aim and fire. [[GangstaStyle Even more cool is firing a gun sideways.]]

]] And some heroes are badass enough to fire ''shotguns or rifles'' (normally two-handed) this way.

* Arguably common in ''SurvivalOfTheFittest''; while it's rarely, if ever, outright said how a character with a handgun is actually holding it, handlers tend to assume the character is doing this instead of the proper two handed grip unless the post says otherwise or if it's a handgun such as a Wildey pistol or Desert Eagle that would be completely ''absurd'' to fire off one handed. This is, however, justified with guns like revolvers or the aforementioned Beretta M1934, which were designed to be able to be used one handed.

* ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'''s Bolters/Boltguns are fully automatic weapons that fire rocket-propelled, armor-penetrating, explosive rounds. They have a pistol grip, however, so sufficiently badass characters have been known to shoot them one-handed; this was a special rule from older editions called "True Grit." Only two examples come to mind: the {{Space Wol|f}}ves, who are heroic [[FantasyCounterpartCulture Vikings in space]], and Plague Marines of Nurgle, who are so bloated with disease that their bulk allows them to absorb the considerable recoil. [[{{Retcon}} These days]], bolters aren't seen being used one-handed terribly often, though it's conceivable that they can: their construction and intended use isn't too different from an SMG (including a pistol grip), and recoil is mitigated by firing two-stage propelled round, along by being most commonly used by a power-armoured super soldier.
