* In ''[[Literature/HonorHarrington Field of Dishonor]]'', Honor puts four rounds into a professional duellist, before he can even get one shot off. Unfortunately for the duellist, Honor grew up practicing pistoleering for sport as an active member of the UsefulNotes/SocietyForCreativeAnachronism[[note]]for context: Note that this series takes place a few millennia into the future, and all powder-fired weapons are considered a few steps up from swords.[[/note]]

* Soolin from the final season of ''Series/BlakesSeven''. In "Games", she even beats ''herself'' in a QuickDraw against at DeadlyGame that's designed to match ''and then exceed'' her own performance. Her EstablishingCharacterMoment shows this trope best.

-->'''Dorian:''' I wouldn't poison a good wine, Avon. {{If I wanted you dead}} there are much more direct ways of achieving it. I could snap my fingers... (He snaps his fingers. Soolin draws her gun and aims it at Avon) And you're dead. Fast isn't she?

* The WiiWare game ''FastDraw'' is entirely made out of this, the difference being that you shoot real life cowboy people.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/TheMrPotatoHeadShow'': It's implied that the original version of the cowboy episode ended with one of these, as there are camera angles sizing up both sheriff!Mr. Potato Head and outlaw!Johnny right before their showdown. (The closeups revealing that their holsters are empty did not stop this.)

* ''Film/TheQuickAndTheDead'' is full of this, being as it is about a quick draw competition. Notably, Keith David's character doesn't have a conventional holster -- his gun is attached to a pivot on his belt (a [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bridgeport_rig Bridgeport Rig]]), letting him fire from the hip without drawing it.
