* One episode of ''Series/{{Monk}}'' had the VillainOfTheWeek pistol whip a victim to death after the gun jammed. Later, [[spoiler:he poses as Monk's friend and "finds" the gun, noting the crack caused by the pistol whipping. This ends up being his undoing as he hasn't seen the body yet and should have assumed the victim was shot.]]

** In the fourth season, after being told that Michael Lee's stepfather is a pedophile who used to abuse Michael, and that Michael fears the stepfather will now do the same to Michael's little brother, [[ProfessionalKiller Christ Partlow]] beats the man to death with nothing but his hands and the butt of a pistol. Even [[AxCrazy Snoop]] is taken aback at the sight.

If you do this in Real Life -- with enoweugh force -- you can actually kill someone by cracking their skull. Also, even the butt of a gun has quite a few pointy parts, which, if whacked against your face, will cause a lot of bleeding and probably leave a large and permanent scar. Pistol whipping itself is an outdated way of striking somebody with your weapon, along with butt stroking somebody. The proper way is to thrust your barrel in a forward motion into the target. Smashing the barrel and slide of your handgun into somebody is a good way to throw off its aim and possibly damage it; it doesn't work as well with lightweight modern polymer guns. Muzzle strikes to the head are considered a lethal strike. Barrel strikes are typically used to put down a person who isn't considered a lethal threat, the point is to keep the ability to shoot at all times. Butt stroking or pistol whipping sweeps yourself or buddies in the line of fire. A proper non-lethal weapon strike can be seen in ''Film/{{Safehouse}}'' by Denzel Washington's character to Ryan Reynolds's character in the soccer stadium, though a strike of that nature would typically break the sternum.
