* ''Film/{{1917}}'' is a rare inversion: the character are generally very good at handling their guns in a professional manner, not waving them around and demonstrating decent trigger discipline. Which is ironic, because this is one of the cases where characters being bad at this would actually make perfect sense, since the film takes place in World War I, long before the refinement of most of the usual gun safety techniques.

** [[http://www.schlockmercenary.com/d/20070920.html Averted.]] TheCaptain is so confident in the gun safety skills of his crew, many of their weapons [[http://www.schlockmercenary.com/d/20010316.html don't have safeties]] ([[http://www.schlockmercenary.com/d/20030704.html except]] for certain [[http://schlockmercenary.com/d/20070522.html heavy weapons]] issued to certain TriggerHappy crewmembers). Played straight in this [[http://www.schlockmercenary.com/d/20091007.html strip]] along with GangstaStyle. The next [[http://www.schlockmercenary.com/d/20091008.html strip]] makes it clear that he knew how stupid he was being and just didn't care.
** Then there's [[http://www.schlockmercenary.com/2006-05-02 this strip]] with the local police trying to arrest Elf. Which rule was "know what's behind your target" again? (However, this is a deliberate set up by the author.)
** Also appears in [[http://www.schlockmercenary.com/2004-05-21 this strip]] where a cop points out that Schlock's outdated plasma cannon is so obscenely dangerous than firing it at all goes against gun safety and common sense.

* ''Anime/CowboyBebop'': Spike loads his handgun and then points it directly at his partner for no reason. Jet, a freaking ''former cop'', fails to comment. Downplayed, at least, in that his finger wasn't on the trigger. He also ''scratches his hair'' using the muzzle of his gun in episode 2.

* In an OlderThanRadio example, Ivan Turgenev's ''A Sportsman's Sketches'' have the narrator meet a guy with a black handkerchief around his head. The guy explains that he once took an inexperienced friend to hunt. The friend decided to play with his gun during a break, so now the man is missing a finger and half the chin.

* Explicitly called out and completely averted as a plot point in ''Creator/JeanJohnson'''s ''Literature/TheirsNotToReasonWhy''. The military is creating an [[Main/WaveMotionGun impossibly powerful space laser]], with an overshoot range measured in light years. Ia points out that only a powerful precognitive can be confident that nothing will be destroyed by traveling into [[Main/WeaponOfMassDestruction where the beam will be in the coming months/years]]. Conveniently, Ia happens to be such a powerful precognitive, and uses this as a persuasive argument as to why she is uniquely qualified to command the ship which carries the laser.
