* Can happen just about any time the left mouse button fires a gun on a PC game; having a narrow keyboard and mouse tray frequently leads to accidental clicks when the LMB is smacked against the edge of the keyboard. In-game, this can have interesting effects, including this trope, especially if the player walks around with their firearm drawn.

** Miles also blames the death of [[spoiler:his bodyguard Bothari]] on this, to protect the real killer, [[spoiler:the mother of Bothari's daughter]]. The deception can be achieved without technically lying, because the victim ''was'' cleaning weapons at the time.

* In the Literature/MissMarple story " ", Sir Henry Clitheroe recalls a case when he had to investigate a man shooting another man with an ancient pistol that had been hanging on the wall. Sir Henry brought to justice the person who had loaded the gun and controlled the conversation, calling the shooter "entirely innocent", although it seems likely he was at least done for reckless misadventure.

* ''TouchedByAnAngel'' has someone breaking just about all the rules -- carelessly waving a loaded WW2-era pistol around, pointing it straight at a friend, and then removing the magazine without clearing the chamber. After all that, how unlucky is it for said gun to [[WhatASenselessWasteOfHumanLife get knocked off a desk, unintentionally fire, and shoot someone right in the heart]]? * ''LawAndOrderSpecialVictimsUnit'' has Olivia telling a story about a fellow cop with asthma staying up for two days straight on a stakeout. After the stakeout ended, he went home and crashed. Later, he woke up because of an asthma attack, reached for his gun instead of his inhaler while half-asleep, and killed himself. Aside from apparently having a gun-shaped inhaler, it seems that the cop forgot to unload his gun when he came home.

** This scene is parodied in the Italian movie ''Cosė E' La Vita''. In a humorous subversion, the bullet only hits the takeout bag the "victim" was holding and what splatters all over the rear window is [[ABloodyMess ketchup]]. -->"You just murdered a cheeseburger."

** What happened was that cartridges with bullets were needed for a closeup. Instead of using dummy rounds, the powder was emptied from live rounds and the bullets (or bullet jackets) replaced. Someone then pulled the trigger on one of these semi-live rounds resulting in a small detonation pushing the bullet to lodge the barrel. (This is also known as a squib load.) Later blanks were loaded into the same gun. The blank cartridge combined with the stuck bullet formed a lethal combination.

** This is also known as a squib load. What happened was that a piece of the catridge got stuck in the barrel. Small enough to go unnotice but large enough that when flew out due to the hot air of the blank it directly pierced his heart.

** Earl shows the same care in the first sequel. Burt picks up a rifle to give to Earl, checking that it's unloaded before handing it to him. Earl ''immediately'' does the exact same thing.
