** 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.)

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.

* In ''FrozenRiver'', the main character is far from a gun expert, but is in fact a gun owner and somewhat intelligent person. Therefore it's quite horrifying to see one scene where she's driving a car while holding someone at gunpoint in the passenger seat. Just to be clear, she has a loaded gun in her hand, with her finger on the trigger, and is ''steering'' with that hand. The gun keeps swinging wildly in the passenger's direction. It becomes hard to pay attention to the film when you're constantly waiting for someone to unintentionally blow someone else's brains out.
