** If the firearm itself is parried, [[RealityEnsues it won't be damaged as badly as a hand or leg would be if it were in the same situation]].

* SherlockHolmes and Dr. Watson each get to pistol whip a bad guy (in "The Three Garridebs" and "The Empty House," respectively). Neither of them appear to cause lasting damage, even though Holmes actually hits the guy hard enough to draw blood!

* Jonas does this to Edward Salinas in the ''{{lonelygirl15}}'' episode "Prom: It's To Die For - Part 4".
* A character in ''SurvivalOfTheFittest'' attempts this once due to the close range between him and the opponent, but the opponent is able to dodge and get behind cover before the character starts shooting. However, Will Sigurbjornsson has recently used this to dispatch [[spoiler:Clive Maxwell.]]

* In an episode of ''WillAndGrace'', Jack has difficulty practicing for a scene in a TV show, where he needs to pistol whip someone. Karen agrees that such a scene is difficult to play seriously. "Because after the first couple of times, you get the giggles."
* In the season one finale of ''HumanTarget'', Chance pistol whips [[spoiler:Guerrero]] while trying to protect Katherine Walters in a flashback scene.

* Invoked and defied in ''Film/SuperTroopers''. After hearing the word 'shenanigans' one too many, O'Hagan threatens the team that he'll pistol-whip the next guy that says 'shenanigans'. Then Mac made [[ButtMonkey Farva]] say a restaurant's name which happens to be "Shenanigans". When offered the pistols to whip, O'Hagan tells them to put those away.

* Thieves in ''GuildWars2'' actually have a skill called Pistol Whip when they equip a sword in one hand and a pistol in the other. The pistol whip stuns your target leaving them defenseless, followed by a flurry of sword strikes. It's arguably more effective than shooting your gun in some scenarios.
