** In "Booked Solid", Reese removes the slide from [[EvilCounterpart Hersh]]'s pistol after stabbing him non-fatally.



* In the ''Deathlands'' series, the companions' armorer, [[GunNut J.B. Dix]], not only constantly strips and cleans his multitude of weapons, but he does it up to five times in sequence and can tell at a single moment's notice when a gun is starting to wear and what exactly is wrong. And to top it all off, he knows by name almost every single make, model, and caliber of gun in circulation in Deathlands, as well as length of both gun and barrel, date of manufacture, and all specs by ''memory''. Every other character does this regularly as well. Given [[CrapsackWorld the]] [[ApocalypseHow nature]] of The Deathlands, it's quite literally a matter of life and death at any given time.

* Gun safety instructors are careful to remind their disciples they ''don't'' need to fully disassemble a gun, just separate bolt, barrel, stock for cleaning (in case of handguns: slide, barrel, mainspring) and they would better leave the more complex parts of the action like the trigger and hammer mechanism to the professional gunsmiths. They might have seen some people [[IJustShotMarvinInTheFace whose triggers went off when the gun was pointed where it shouldn't be]].

This is the technical difference between "stripping" a gun and disassembling it - stripping allows access to ordinary maintenance points; disassembly involves taking every single part off the weapon.

* ''TabletopGame/FengShui'' has a Gun Schtick called "Dismantle Gun" that allows gunmen to pull that Jet Li move from ''LethalWeapon4'' on another guy's gun, using their Guns skill in place of Martial Arts. The Neat Freak gun schtick, which reduces the time needed to clear a jam, implies someone who does this quite regularly and otherwise knows how to take care of their guns.
