* 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.

** 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 Arnold Schwarzenegger 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.

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

** Strangely, though, the sound that plays is that of a shotgun being pumped ''twice''. Though that would explain why the guns need to be reloaded after firing less than half a dozen shots.

* Pam does this in Archer. Justified by previous examples of her displaying almost superhuman strength.

As seen in this [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A8tVFvl84Ls shotgun tutorial video]], attempting this in real life is possible, but inefficient. It also puts a ''lot'' of unnecessary strain on the gun's moving parts, and is unsafe, as a considerable amount of force is required to rack the slide. It's very possible to lose your grip and [[IJustShotMarvinInTheFace send a now-loaded firearm flying across the room.]] On the other hand, this can be justified if the user in question is [[AnArmAndAnLeg handicapped]].
