* ''ComicBook/JudgeDredd''. Judges holster their Lawgivers on their boots, in spite of the fact that it's generally depicted as a HandCannon. Carlos Ezquerra states that he designed it this way because it was more practical to unholster while on a bike.

The sniper rifle and assault rifle sit over the shoulders but sit vertically rather than at an angle. The most orthodox ones are the pistol and submachine gun holstered on the hips.

* Dwight [=McCarthy=] uses a sleeve-rig with a small-caliber revolver to shoot Manute during the final shootout of the ''ComicBook/SinCity'' story "A Dame to Kill For." Being that Manute is MadeOfIron, he comes back for "The Big Fat Kill."
** [[LittleUselessGun The gun was only a .25.]] Dwight laments this as he draws. Fortunately, this weakens Manute enough for him to grab hold of one of Manute's .45s.

* The bar scene in ''Film/MyNameIsNobody'' has a character wearing his guns in his holsters backwards. Nobody tells him, "people who wear their guns backwards are bad news." When he goes for his guns, Nobody pulls one out, points it at his chin, returns it to his holster, than slaps him with both hands, all before he can move more than an inch or so. He does this several times--Nobody is able to move supernaturally fast when it comes to guns.

* ''Franchise/RoboCop'' keeps his trusty sidearm (a heavily modified Beretta 93R) tucked inside his leg armour. He's shown drawing and holstering it a number of times, including plenty of GunTwirling, a holdover to his previous life as Officer Alex Murphy, [[ChekhovsSkill which becomes important later.]]
* ''Film/PaleRider'' has a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ciez9G4cADE blink-and-you'll-miss-it example]] when Stockburn's posse open fire on Spider - the member on the far left, nearest the camera, draws his pistol by flicking it out of the holster and around his finger.

* [[Manga/GunsmithCats Rally Vincent]] often wears long sleeves to allow for a ''Taxi Driver'' style peashooter in case she can't use her usual weapons, but more often than not, we see it when she's being forced to completely disarm rather than actually using it.
