* Over in Georgia, a single mother shot a home invader five times in the face and neck with a .38 caliber revolver. The suspect reportedly cried, before stumbling out of the house and attempted to flee in a car, before promptly crashing it at a neighbor's house, and being found alive by the police when they arrived.

* Averted in ''Film/LockStockAndTwoSmokingBarrels''. A single shot from a dinky pocket pistol is enough to kill [[spoiler: even the huge and fearsome Barry The Baptist]]

* The weakest gun in ''Franchise/ResidentEvil'' tends to be a standard or customized Beretta (the Beretta 92F in most of the games, the 92F Inox in the director's cut of the [[VideoGame/ResidentEvil first game]], and the 93R in ''VideoGame/ResidentEvilCodeVeronica''). In ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil6'', it's replaced with the 909, being the starting weapon for both Chris and Jake. ** In a bit of irony, the Derringer you find in the first game's remake is powerful enough to kill anything that's not a boss in one bullet - lucky given that that's all you get for it. * Averted partway through RE2 and Code: Veronica. Leon's VP-70 and Claire's Beretta 93R both get upgraded to fire in bursts. Chris Redfield's Glock gets a longer barrel, causing it to do more damage

** This is also part of the reason why the US Army switching from the M1911 to the Beretta 92FS on NATO's suggestion in the 1980's was such a controversial move - critics were disparaging of the Beretta's smaller 9mm caliber compared to the beefy .45 ACP they'd been using for close to a century. Of course, this is not taking into account that 9mm has better penetration and longer range than .45 and twice the magazine capacity.

Of course, this is not taking into account that 9mm has better penetration and longer range than .45, but given [[ReliablyUnreliableGuns several other (self-inflicted) issues with the gun (that have since been fixed)]], it's still generally seen as worthless in military use.

* Ladies and Germs, behold the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2_mm_Kolibri Kolibri pistol]]. With a '''2.7mm''' caliber, smoothbore barrel and maximum of 1.5 inches of penetration in pine board, we have a sterling real life example of a LittleUselessGun. Strong language would've protected you better than this pea shooter. By the way, the inventor of the tiny pistol [[UnfortunateImplications intended it for women]]. ** That must be the only gun that is potentially more lethal if you ''throw'' it. ** To get a sense of the energy coming out of one of these, a heavy (0.43g) airsoft pellet traveling at 120m/s (for high end models) is roughly 3/4's the energy of the bullet coming out of a Kolibri. ** If you needed another reason on how little and useless it is, the technology at the time was not advanced enough to rifle a gun barrel that small, so the bullet had no spin, and thus, had much lower accuracy.
