** While the T-800 is riding his motorcycle and chasing John and the T-1000 down the canal, he spins his 1887 Winchester (lever-action) to reload it. Justified in-universe by the T-800 having metal "bones" in his fingers that can withstand the stress of this action. Also justified by how mind-blowingly badass he looked doing it. The prop shotgun that Creator/ArnoldSchwarzenegger carried for the scene had an enlarged loop on the lever, and a lighter aluminum barrel, allowing him to do the trick without breaking his fingers. At one point, he mistakenly flipcocked the non-prop shotgun and almost ''did'' break his fingers.

* Soldiers equipped with a shotgun in ''VideoGame/XCOMEnemyUnknown'' do this after each shot. They'll even do it with a scatter laser or an Alloy gun (A rail gun that fires a bunch of alien metal slivers).

* ''Videogame/{{Warframe}}'s'' Marelok lever-action pistol is pumped like the Terminator's winchester; by [[GunTwirling spinning the weapon about the lever one handed]]. The Grinlok lever rifle, however, is pumped in a normal manner.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/{{Postal}} 2: Paradise Lost'' has this as a consequence of being able to go GunsAkimbo with most guns, with the standard pump shotgun getting new pumping animations where the Dude throws the gun back to grab the pump, works it with one hand, then tosses it forward again to bring it back up to fire again. The lever-action shotgun, being a Winchester 1887, also naturally gets the typical ''Terminator''-style flip-cocking animation, whether you're using it one or two at a time.

* The Hong Kong film ''Tiger on the Beat'' features an... elaborate version of this; ChowYunFat's character, Sergeant Francis Li, attaches a string to his shotgun's pump handle and trigger, so he can fire it from cover, in what can best be described as a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_ehAdfkZcKo shotgun yo-yo]].

There is an actual technique for cycling a pump action with one hand (only used if your other hand is incapacitated), but it entails placing the butt on the ground and cycling against it, which is far safer and more controlled.

controlled. A similar technique can be used to cycle the slide of a pistol, using the edge of a table to press on the front of the slide while not blocking the barrel.

* In ''Film/{{Equilibrium}}'', Preston manages a variant of this with two shotguns at once while holding the pistol grip rather than the pump. According the DVD commentary, Creator/ChristianBale actually pulled this off himself unaided.

** Strangely, though, the sound that plays is that of a shotgun being pumped ''twice''.
