* Shockingly found in the US Marine Corps despite thorough training on weapons handling. The highly discouraged "Trust" game that some Marines started playing in Iraq involves pointing a weapon at the head of a fellow Marine and asking "Do you trust me?". [[http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/32804431/ns/us_news-military/t/marines-take-deadly-risks-trust-game/ One Marine]] was sadly killed by this reckless behavior that goes against their training. The guy that killed him got eight years.

* A tragic example, in which an 8-year-old boy was killed by the recoil of a Mini-Uzi at a gun-show. The boy was firing the weapon but his arm was too weak to hold the gun steady, the recoil from the first bullet bent the kid's arms all the way back with the muzzle pointing in his face. Even worse, [[http://abcnews.go.com/US/father-christopher-bizilj-died-firing-uzi-urged-son/story?id=12565132 a worker at the show testified that he'd warned the father]] ''twice'' to pick a less powerful weapon.

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zw-jTCNZSmY This video]]. Ironically enough, it was during a gun safety presentation, and came right after he claimed to be the "only one in the room professional enough" to handle that gun, while he clearly had his finger on the trigger of a gun that does not have a manual safety. It wasn't a fatal accident, however; the man only shot himself in the foot. It's also commonly believed that [[IMeantToDoThat this was a stunt]] and it had been a blank cartridge.

* ''Film/PulpFiction''. The {{Trope Namer|s}}. Vincent Vega, an "[[InformedAttribute experienced hitman]]," is talking with Marvin, a guy he and Jules picked up in the aftermath of their hit on Brett near the beginning of the movie. Marvin is in the backseat of Jules's car. While speaking with Marvin, Vincent is not only casually waving his handgun in the air, not only ''resting his finger on the trigger'', but '''lays his wrist on the back of the seat with the barrel pointed directly at Marvin's head.'''[[note]]One wonders why Marvin isn't freaking out when he can easily ''see'' all of this.[[/note]] So, when something happens (Vincent claims it was a bump, Jules claims the car "didn't hit no motherfuckin' bump"; it's also probable Vincent just twitched his finger), the gun goes off, the bullet hits Marvin in the face and not only blows his brains all over the rear window, but [[BloodyHilarious splatters gore all over the inside of the car, including on both Vincent and Jules]]. Thus it is demonstrated to everyone in the audience just ''why'' you should always watch where you're pointing your weapon and, perhaps more importantly, keep your finger away from the trigger unless you intend to shoot wherever the gun points (oh, and let us ''not'' forget that safety catch). While the shooting does become a major plot point, Vincent's initially only-mildly perturbed reaction to his mistake while Jules is practically screaming at him over it is [[BlackComedy one of the funniest moments]] of the movie, making the {{Trope Namer|s}} a less strict version of this trope. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LBBni_-tMNs Note that to top it all off]], even ''after'' shooting Marvin in the face Vincent STILL does not take his finger off the trigger.

* ''LightNovel/{{Baccano}}'', when the [[FiringInTheAirALot celebratory gunshot]] the head of the Martillo family fires is immediately met with "Oh my God, somebody just killed Isaac!" from the floor above. Judging by a waitresses panicked reaction to finding people in that room, it was well-known among the staff that bullets occasionally come up through that floor. Thankfully, Isaac was actually fine.\\
\\
In the novel, they were actually seated at the wrong table because some of the Martillo's had moved the liquor barrels normally blocking those tables off during meetings to down stairs for the first party and forgot to inform Lia. Issac was also shot through one of his over-sized shoes and had been distracted looking up at some holes in the ceiling, rather than how it happened in the manga. (they were invited to the first party as compensation for the Martillo's screw-up).
