* A common {{Urban Legend|s}} of the cowboy type is of the "Third Gunman" or "Ghost Gunman" depending on who's telling the tale. The story goes that two gunmen went out to "slap leather" at high noon over a dispute over who was the faster gunman. Both men drew and fired, and to the confusion of all, both men missed, while a ''third'' gunshot rang out between them. As the story goes, the men discovered their bullets had hit each other in mid air. This led both men to drop their feud.

** A similar story involves a pair of twins involved in [[LetsFightLikeGentlemen a Gentleman's Duel]] - one was right-handed, the other left, so after taking the required ten paces, they turned and fired at the same time, rendering the same result.

* Rushuna from ''Anime/{{Grenadier}}'' does this ''all the time''. At one point, she even stops an entire [[MoreDakka machinegun salvo]] with a single revolver bullet (by making it ricochet).

In the finale, she fights a gunslinger of equal skill, and several times they manage to shoot at each other on the exact same vectors at the exact same time, causing their bullets to impact square in the middle between them.

* Relatively easily implemented in the ''TabletopGame/HeroSystem'' by purchasing the Deflection power (which allows ranged attacks to be blocked ''at'' range, as opposed to only when they would otherwise hit the blocking character him- or herself, though the attempt itself then still has to succeed) through a suitably gun-shaped Focus, possibly with additional modifiers to fine-tune it as desired. Or at least that's "relatively easily" in a suitably ''superheroic'' or otherwise over-the-top campaign; that there are mechanics for it doesn't automatically mean the ''[[GameMaster GM]]'' has to allow it.
