* ''Series/LukeCage2016'': This is how Misty Knight's corrupt partner Rafael Scarfe gets fatally shot. He has a remote meeting with Cottonmouth and tries to shake him down for money that he knows Cottonmouth doesn't have. Cottonmouth abruptly punches him in the face. Scarfe grabs his gun from the holster, and the two men struggle over the gun until it is dropped. Cottonmouth then throws Scarfe aside, picks up Scarfe's gun, and empties it in his direction, managing to hit him a few times in the chest.

Variations apply: sometimes the gunshot is a BaitAndSwitchGunshot. Sometimes it comes from a third character watching the struggle. Sometimes [[IJustShotMarvinInTheFace it hits a bystander]]. Sometimes [[DeadfootLeadfoot it hits a driver]], if the fight is in a moving vehicle. Sometimes it's non-fatal. Sometimes [[BulletHolesAndRevelations it's not immediately obvious which of the two was shot]]. But a gun will ''always'' [[ChekhovsGun go off]]. Because that's [[RuleOfDrama dramatic]].

* An interesting variation occurs in ''Film/RaidersOfTheLostArk'' when Indy and the mook he's struggling with briefly cooperate to shoot another mook that Toht just ordered to "Shoot them both." In ''Film/TheLastCrusade'', Indy's father has a brief gun struggle with a {{Mook}} inside a tank. He defeats him by shooting ink at him with a pen. "The pen is mightier than the sword" indeed.

* In the 1951 remake of ''The Racket'', the villain kills a policeman after a gun struggle, leaving some ambiguity as to whether he meant to fire the shot. In [[Film/TheRacket the 1927 original]], he just pulls his gun and shoots the cop InTheBack. Note the difference between pre- and -post Production Code standards.
