Both Went For The Gun

A literal gunfight, where the participants actually fight over a gun

Name Space:
Main
Page Type:
Trope
Two characters are struggling with each other, one (or both) pull out a gun, but it never gets a chance to be used before it's knocked to the floor. The guys then proceed to fight to get at the gun first.

Bonus points if the gun gets knocked away multiple times, or to somewhere dangerous that the characters then have to clamber to.

Examples:

  • Seen often in James Bond films.
  • Jason Statham loves doing this, occasionally flicking the gun away from the Mook's reach using improbable everyday items, e.g. The Transporter series.
  • Jackie Chan also. See Rush Hour etc.
