* In ''Disney/RobinHood'', the Sheriff of Nottingham asks his henchman, Trigger not to point his crossbow at him. Trigger assures him that the safety is on. Of course, right as he says that, he pats the crossbow, accidentally setting it off.

* In ''Film/SurLaPisteDuMarsupilami'', this is done by a parrot (with its talon) when a bandido puts a machete under its throat, holding the bird hostage for its master to comply.

* In the ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' novel ''Discworld/MenAtArms'', Sgt. Detritus (a troll) takes a siege bow (i.e. it basically fires telephone poles with blunt points on them to smash castle walls) and points it at the quartermaster in charge of the Ankh-Morpork armory. Corporal Carrot gently points the huge weapon towards the floor while persuading the man to let the Watch borrow some weapons. Naturally, the quartermaster gladly agrees, although he has a hard time getting the words out -- the first word he thinks is "FIRE!"
** This becomes a bit of a running gag when Detritus points the later-refitted siege bow at pretty much anything else, with him either having it redirected or ordered to point it away or put it away. The "Piecemaker," as it is later dubbed, fires large bundles of arrows that disintegrate under the stress to form a rapidly-expanding cloud of deadly wood fragments, taking out anyone or anything that happens to be standing in that general direction, so when coupled with Detritus's shaky grasp of the concept of a safety catch it tends to make his superiors quite jumpy when the Piecemaker is pointed at anything they don't want to see completely leveled.

* VideoGame/RatchetAndClankFutureACrackInTime A Terachnoid does this to Ratchet when he raises his wrench at him. He then says "If you intend to manhandle me, I'll have you know I'm a level 10 wizard with melee ability." Ratchet then proceded to push his chair causing him to crash. "That hurt my pride, and my solar plexus."

* 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.

* 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)
