* In ''Film/TheBlackHole'', Captain S.T.A.R. twirls his [[GunsAkimbo twin laser gun guns]] after beating Old B.O.B. at target shooting. However the android has to cheat to win, so it's a sign of boastful bravado rather than competence. V.I.N.CENT. challenges Captain S.T.A.R. moments later and wins, [[DefeatEqualsExplosion causing it to blow a fuse.]]

* Unless you are a professional and a performer, do not do this. Ever. You may well end your life or someone else's. Endangering someone to try this silly move is negligent and reprehensible.
** That said, there are a small number of performers who do this as a trick both for shows and for movies. For example, here is [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RPx6cw-lrKM Joey Dillon]] showing some Hollywood moves.
** Similarly, there are military rifle teams who do similar tricks with their rifles.

* ''Series/{{Godless}}'' has this in the first episode with a nameless extra and in the second with Whitey, who does it in front of a full-length mirror talking to an imaginary opponent [[Film/TaxiDriver Travis Bickle-style]], then quick-draws [[GunsAkimbo both his revolvers at once]], obviously impressed by how cool he looks. (His employer is far less impressed when he comes through the door and Whitey points the guns at him.)
