I recall hearing it in "Zombieland" (2009), in the opening sequence
where the voiceover lists the rules for living/staying alive in Zland
- there it meant add a second bullet, in case the first just wounds
the zombie. The underlying story was written in 2005, though not sure
if the rules were written then. As it happens, a sequel, Zombieland:
Double Tap, is set to be released on October 18, 2019.
