Police officers really do not like these kind of suicides. The result is ''always'' very messy and gory, and can leave nightmares to anyone who has to wittness this kind of suicide happening. You need only look at [[Film/FullMetalJacket the film where the Trope Image comes from]].

* The character "Kid" kills himself this way in ''Film/LandOfTheDead'' after being bitten and infected; in ''Film/DayOfTheDead'', another character does the same so he won't have to suffer the pain of being eaten alive.

* In Creator/HarryTurtledove's ''{{Timeline-191}}'', Hippolito Rodriguez is able to rationalize his work as a death-camp guard for a long time, until a few questions from an elderly inmate he's grown to like force him to realize he is involved in genocide. He performs this trope because he can't live with that knowledge. Turtledove also mentions other guards "eating their guns"

* On ''WesternAimation/KingOfTheHill'', Cotton prepared to do this, dressing up in full military uniform with all of his medals, and asking Dale to lend him a single bullet. He is interrupted at the last moment by his wife Didi barging in and telling him to watch their infant son Good Hank for a while since she's been with him all day. Hank gets there just in time to hear the gunshot from outside the door and bursts in to find that Cotton had opted to have GH fire the bullet into a mattress instead, apparently having found some renewed will to live (BabiesMakeEverythingBetter?).
