* Done surprisingly realistically in ''Equilibrium'', which is otherwise notorious for outrageous GunFu. At the beginning of the film, a heavily-armored SWAT-type team raids a building because the residents [[CulturePolice are enjoying looking at paintings]]. The residents barricade themselves behind a locked door. The team breaches the door with point-blank shotgun slugs to the hinges and the door frame near the lock. Then RuleOfCool takes over as Preston dodges the residents' fire and singlehandedly kills them all with GunKata.

** In "Gold", Avon shoots out the locks on a crate of gold bullion; having been warned that it might be booby-trapped, he stands well back and shields his face from potential shrapnel.

* ''Series/BlakesSeven''. Avon does this for a DynamicEntry in "Animals", even though the base had earlier been stated to be impregnable. It doesn't help that the actor nearly has a PratFall as he charges inside and the main door is shown to be wide open, which makes you wonder why they didn't just enter that way.

* It's possible to shoot locked chests to open them in ''Videogame/EnterTheGungeon'', though doing this means that you're more likely to get either a consumable or just junk rather than the item itself.

That is, unless you're using the [=AKEY-47=], a gun that shoots keys; the description states that this is what it is made to do.

* During the liberation of the Cabanatuan POW Camp in WW2, S/Sgt Theodore Robinson shot the lock off the main gate using a .45. He actually did this after the .45 was shot out of his hand without injuring him, making this an example of both ShootOutTheLock and BlastingItOutOfTheirHands.

* In a few missions of ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'', you shoot the lock off of control panel door to get to the controls inside. Hilariously subverted in the Citadel DLC, however. At one point, Shepard prepares to shoot the lock out of a door, only to be stopped by their partner, [[MundaneSolution who politely knocks on the door and asks the merchant inside to open it]].

* Defied in the AfterTheEnd book series ''Literature/TheGuardians''. When asked by a teenager if he was going to shoot out the lock on a locked door, the leader of the Guardians replies that it's a "great way to collect a bullet in the nuts kid and probably wouldn't open the door." He then proceeds to use a crowbar instead.
