Smoking Barrel Blowout
Blowing out the smoke out of the barrel of the gun after a shot. May be parodied with gun-like objects, such as a Finger Gun, or with objects such as blowtorches. Especially common with The Gunslingers in Western movies, as modern ammunition is less smoky. Compare Swipe Your Blade Off.

Film - Live Action
- Done by Ace Ventura, with a skunk's ass.
- Inverted in Lock, Stock & Two Smoking Barrels; after the protagonists successfully steal the stolen money and marijuana from their neighbors, they're seen using the shotguns they used for the job as "a novelty smoking device for tobacco use only" during a party montage, thus breathing in the smoke, rather than blow it out.

In an attempt to keep looking Bad Ass, he tries to holter/sheath his daggers, only to have his belt and pants to fall, causing Will to explain that he hasn't figured that part out yet.
