* The Creator/JohnWayne movie, ''El Dorado'' where he buys a "a gun for a man who can't shoot," which turns out to be a sawed-off shotgun. Later, John Wayne is the only man in their band hit by in the final fight... the doctor finds shotgun shrapnel in the wound and wants to know who would bring a gun like that to a fight like that.

* Heavily implied in "Mexican Blood" by Music/ThinLizzy. (All we know is a) a cowboys son is looking for trouble, b) the Mexican boy tries to gun him down c) when the smoke clears, the Mexican's girlfriend lies dead on the ground.)

* Happens in OneThousandWaysToDie. In one case, a drunken redneck shoots into the air and kills an InnocentBystander who was ''a mile away''. In another two hitmen try to kill a mafioso who has betrayed the group, but the reinforced glass from the car deflects all of the shots... and one of these shots kills the hitman who shot it.

* President RonaldReagan was a real-life version of this trope. When John Hinckley shot at him, he missed with every shot - the bullet that actually hit Reagan ricocheted off the [[{{Irony}} security glass]] of his presidential limo and struck him in the side. Initially, at least, no one was even aware he'd been shot at all.

** This troper knows a military marksmanship instructor. He HATES full-auto, and points out that its actual strategic purpose is basically to make a scary noise so the enemy will be too busy hiding to shoot back. Works well if you have an ammo truck following you, but for a small fireteam it's a good way to get stuck in enemy territory with empty guns.
