* In ''iterature/GenerationKill'', IntrepidReporter Evan Wright is given an M4 by Corporal Ray Person, who can't fire it because he's driving. While Wright never actually fires the gun, when he hands it back, he does so barrel first, which both terrifies and then irritates Person. Wright notes wryly that he was not asked to shoot ever again. (This did not make it into the HBO series)

* In [[http://exterminatusnow.co.uk/2010-07-03/comic/voiding-your-warranty/monopolytheism/ this]] strip of ''Webcomic/ExterminatusNow'' the team is getting ready to go into a secret base that's been taken over by demons. As they're getting ready to go in the civilian expert they have to escort keeps pointing his gun somewhere he shouldn't be with his finger on the trigger. Although it is understandable since the scientist hasn't had ANY kind of weapons training like the protagonists one wonders why they would even bother giving him a gun.
