I Almost Shot Marvin In The Face
Character is careless/unsafe with firearms but endangered character prevents own death.
Twin trope to and an aversion of I Just Shot Marvin in the Face. A character who is clueless/careless/untrained in firearms safety avoids shooting a gun savvy fellow character because the gun savvy character carefully points the clueless character's gun away from his own face. (All IJSMITF aversions will need to be moved here) Examples: Anime and Manga: Comics: Literature: Film: Live Action TV:
- NCIS: Season 10 episode "Detour" Palmer (No firearms training) finds a handgun. Ducky (Military training from decades ago) finds the gun pointed in his face and carefully pushes it away.
- Webcomic:Exterminatus Now: During the "Secret Lab" arc, one of the scientists is given a handgun. Said gun is repeatedly pointed at one or another of the main cast.
