->''"The gun katas. Through analysis of thousands of recorded gunfights, the Cleric has determined that the geometric distribution of antagonists in any gun battle is a statistically predictable element. The gun kata treats the gun as a total weapon, each fluid position representing a maximum kill zone, inflicting maximum damage on the maximum number of opponents while keeping the defender clear of the statistically traditional trajectories of return fire."''

By the rote mastery of this art, your firing efficiency will rise by no less than 120%. The difference of a 63% increase to lethal proficiency makes the master of the gun katas an adversary not to be taken lightly."''

* In VideoGame/{{Overwatch}}, Reaper's Ultimate, Death Blossom, essentially turns him into a blazing Gun Kata typhoon, blowing away pretty much any enemy player in his direct vicinity. It doesn't do great at the "avoiding return fire" part, admittedly...

* Banban Akaza in ''Series/TokusouSentaiDekaranger'' uses a fighting style called "Juu Kun Do", named after Jeet Kune Do with the Japanese word for "gun" added in. There's a reason why his name sounds like [[MeaningfulName "bang bang"]].
** Don't forget his Series/PowerRangersSPD counterpart Jack Landors.
