2. To be in a bad condition or totally destroyed. I wish I could have the repairs finished sooner, but I'm afraid your engine's shot. Between dealing with mounting debt, my four children, and my recent divorce, my nerves are pretty shot at the moment.
3. To be filmed. The surprise independent hit was shot on a budget of less than $100,000.
4. To be wasted, spent, or used up, typically money or resources. I can't believe my entire budget for a week in Las Vegas was shot in the first day!
