* Generally averted in ''TabletopGame/{{GURPS}}''. Because locks, like most machines, have the "Injury Tolerance (Unliving)" trait, all Piercing damage is divided by three after factoring in Damage Reduction. This means that a typical 9x19mm pistol deals a whopping 1 damage per shot to a standard lock. So, you're typically looking at an expenditure of SIX bullets before a lock potentially fails. Shotgun slugs usually destroy a lock in one shot, but that is to be expected: they deal more damage and are of a different damage type (Huge Piercing) altogether.

* Real life example of the SF version: In a video shown on [=TruTV=], an armed robber herded the employees of a store into the back room and attempted to cut telephone lines to prevent the victims from calling for help. Instead, he cut a wire controlling the door to the back room, preventing it from opening and trapping him until police arrived. [[epic fail oops.]]
