* In ''Film/NoCountryForOldMen,'' the villain (chillingly well-played by Javier Bardem) shoots off locks, but with an air gun that drives a metal spike through the lock and launches it into the next room. As cool as this is, it is sadly [[http://www.intuitor.com/moviephysics/NoCountry.htm impossible]].

* Jack Bauer does it in the premiere of the eighth season of ''[[Series/TwentyFour 24]]''.
* Used in the ''[[FlashForward2009 FlashForward]]'' series - to be fair, it was a padlock, and it was shot from point blank range, so it was quite realistic.

*** Not that it works all the time, mind. One instance of failing a terminal hack to gain access to a secure hardened submarine pen led to her attempting a brute force hack with Thumper, only succeeding in obliterating the terminal and keeping the armored blast doors shut. Luckily for the group however, the sub pen was well-defended from both aerial and tank attacks, and as such has a mass of [[BFG Flak 88]] batteries on the roof, along with some decently hard-hitting APHE rounds. Needless to say, they aren't locked out of the place for too long.

** Taken UpToEleven by the sequel, ''Fanfic/FalloutEquestriaEmptyQuiver'', where Night Strike continues the tradition of ballistic lockpicking with Thumper - a [[BFG 40mm]] GrenadeLauncher that doubles as a [[ShotgunsAreJustBetter shotgun]], and can load slug rounds.

* This shows up in ''Fanfic/FalloutEquestriaOccupationalHazards'' with Twintails and his rechambered .45 ACP Luger. Much to his companion and friend Minty's dismay, he does quite enjoy ballistic lockpicking over the standard bobby pin and screwdriver kind.
