He had found one of Yellowjacket’s guns and was fooling around with it when Yellowjacket returned home through his window; Harley mistook him for a robber and reflexively pulled the trigger.]]

* The plot of the ''Series/DoctorWho'' story "Planet of Fire" revolves around the Master having been shrunk to a few inches tall and trying to find a way to return to normal size. Although he's too embarrassed to explain what happened in detail, it's strongly implied that he accidentally shot himself with his Tissue Compression Eliminator (a usually-lethal ShrinkRay).

* Firearms in ''TabletopGame/{{Pathfinder}} Roleplaying Game'' misfire on a CriticalFailure, causing the gun to break. Any character foolish enough to fire a broken gun risks having the expensive firearm blow up in their face, potentially killing themselves and anyone nearby in the blast. The misfire rate also increases by more than five times if loaded by a nonproficient wielder. Overall, gun safety in Pathfinder is serious business and functions as the primary means to deter non-specialists from using guns in a swords and sorcery world.

* Actor Jon-Erik Hexum killed himself by demonstrating a gun filled with blanks by shooting himself in the head, unaware that at such close range, a blank round is just as deadly as a real bullet--if you put the barrel directly against your head, you create a tight enough seal the force of the hot gas is enough to break off a piece of your skull, and that then acts as a projectile. Especially at the temple, as that is the weakest part of the skull ''and'' has a major artery right underneath it.

** Juan Carlos himself was infamously involved in the accidental death of his younger brother Alfonso while in exile as a young prince in Estoril, Portugal, in 1956. While details are sketchy even to this day the official version states that the young Juan Carlos was cleaning a revolver in presence of his younger brother when a shot happened, hitting the 14-year-old Infante in the forehead and killing him within a few minutes.

* The notorious incident where famous Hungarian singer Jimmy Zámbó accidentally shot himself in the head while drunk and fooling around with his gun during a New Year's celebration. He even removed the magazine to show it was safe--forgetting that it was a ''semi-automatic pistol'' and already had a bullet chambered.
** A widespread (and quite amusing) urban legend says he was trying to kill the neighbor's rooster due to its crowing being annoying, explaining how the bullet got into the chamber in the first place.

** A similar example applies to Huey Long: One theory of his assassination is that his guards, [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill in shooting the assassin dozens of times]] hit him with one shot. According to the theory, some of Long's last words indicated that he was going to cover for his guards by blaming the alleged shooter.

* Elvis Presley was an avid gun collector, and almost always had a gun on his person. According to a story told in "Elvis: What Happened?", one of his "Memphis Mafia" members, Sonny West, taught him to always keep the first chamber of his guns empty. This led to an aversion of this trope, as he pulled a gun on someone who barged in on him in the bathroom, and would have blown his head off had the first chamber not been empty.

[[CaptainObvious Guns are weapons]]. That's why there're various rules for [[UsefulNotes/GunSafety safely handling]] them. When these rules are not followed, whether it be by [[ArtisticLicenseGunSafety experts]] or [[RecklessGunUsage untrained John Q Public]], there's a chance for a negligent discharge. That's when somebody gets shot. Sometimes in the face. Being named Marvin is rare, however. Either way, it's not funny the same way that JugglingLoadedGuns is, because somebody just got shot. We mean, it ''can'' still be funny (hilarious, even!) but on the other hand, somebody did just get wounded or killed.
