Note also that modern small arms munitions, especially military grade, are perfectly capable of penetrating right through someone and retaining sufficient energy to kill or severely injure the person being shielded, so this is very much a NoOtherOption tactic if trying to stop someone else being shot.

* Parodied in ''CitySlickers II: The Legend of Curly's Gold'' when Jon Lovitz' character takes a bullet for Billy Crystal's character, shares some tearful last words with his brother, and black out... then immediately revives upon discovering the bullet was a blank. * Subverted in an intense scene of ''The Caveman's Valentine'' when [[Creator/SamuelLJackson Romulus]] tries to do this for his daughter. He throws himself on top of her as a badguy starts shooting. She then continues firing at the bad guy while pinned under her hysterically yelling father. Romulus, seconds later: "Are you shot? Am I? We're alright? We're not shot? You're alive? I'm alive? How can that be?"
