* ''Series/TheGoldenGirls''. Rose buys a gun for protection after the house is robbed. Late one night, she hears a noise and fires a shot, and only ''afterwards'' does she turn on the light to see that she's destroyed Blanche's Ming vase. Blanche's hysterical reaction is played for laughs, but in truth, Rose could have injured or even killed Blanche or her date with her stupidity.

* In ''Series/TheITCrowd'', Douglas Reynholm, having inherited Reynholm Industries after his father's suicide, discovers a revolver in his late father's desk drawer, and proceeds to check if it's loaded by ''putting the barrel in his mouth and pulling the trigger five times''. He then loads the gun and, within a few minutes, manages to shoot himself in the leg while trying to conceal it. He truly is TooDumbToLive. Moss also counts at the end of the episode, where he drives off the bullies in the park by waving the weapon over his head screaming "I've got a gun! I've got a ruddy gun!"

* Russian soldiers have been photographed using PPSH 41s as stools to this very day (where it is used mostly ceremonially). Worse, for this to work the magazine is the seat.

** In "A Scandal in Belgravia", he disarms a man and flips the gun through the air before casually catching and aiming it while holding the trigger. In contrast, [[FemmeFatale Irene Adler]], in the same scene, points a pistol at her assailant with her finger clearly off the trigger -- just like the assailants themselves were doing moments earlier. (The assailants being [[spoiler:CIA operatives]], justifying their knowledge of proper firearm handling.)

(The assailants being [[spoiler:CIA operatives]], justifying their knowledge of proper firearm handling.)) He makes things worse by going outside and firing the gun into the air a few times (to summon the police, because he can't be bothered to just dial 999), apparently unaware of the numerous cases of people wounded or killed by stray shots and celebratory gunfire.

* ''Series/{{Community}}'': In "[[Recap/CommunityS2E09ConspiracyTheoriesAndInteriorDesign Conspiracy Theories and Interior Design]]," there's a ridiculous GambitPileup with everyone shooting guns loaded with blanks at each other in order to teach everyone else various lessons. Once everything is over and done with, a cop comes in, sees a guy waving a gun around, and shoots him dead... only for it to turn out that this was yet another lesson, this one about how it's a terrible idea to play with guns, blanks or not. Referenced again in "[[Recap/CommunityS3E09FoosballAndNocturnalVigilantism Foosball and Nocturnal Vigilantism]]."
-->'''Officer Cackowski:''' Say, you look familiar. Did I ever pretend to shoot a guy in front of you to teach you a lesson about gun safety?\\
'''Annie:''' ...yes.\\
'''Officer Cackowski:''' Knew it. Never forget a face.
