* In ''Webcomic/ExterminatusNow'', Eastwood attempts suicide this way when cornered by a black widow demon who promises to rape and kill him. Unfortunately, he just emptied it trying to [[ShootOutTheLock shoot out a lock]].

There are lots of ways to [[ChoosingDeath do yourself in]]: jump off a bridge, hanging, stick your head in the oven. One popular method in the USA and Hollywood is to wrap your lips around the barrel of your favorite firearm, and pull the trigger[[note]] This being part of the reason why they have fewer suicidal and depressed people than all other developed countries - their average suicide attempt is about 50% lethal, versus less than 10% for the rest of the developed world (deliberate drug overdose having an average lethality of 2-3%, versus bullet to the brain at 90%+). This is because ''half'' their suicide attempts are with firearms, this rate also mirroring their rate of firearms-ownership (about half, versus 15% for Australia and less for countries like Poland where they don't have [[DeathWorld cane toads, rabbits, crows, dingos, foxes, and crocs to deal with]]). Funnily enough, despite the impression given by all the gory stories about 'drive-by-shootings' and 'school shootings' it's actually suicide and not murder that makes up the majority of their 15,000 annual firearms-deaths.[[/note]]. One obvious reason for this: [[NoRangeLikePointBlankRange not a lot of room for error]]. Of course, some people still screw it up.

* In one/several of the ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'' games, if the [[ASpaceMarineIsYou Master Chief]] dies, one of the [[{{Mooks}} Marines]] can occasionally be overheard saying something similar to "The Chief is dead? I...think I'll go eat my gun now."

* In ''VideoGame/BioShockInfinite'', human enemies you hit with the Possession Vigor will do this once it wears off. It's not clear whether this is one of the Vigor's effects or if they just can't live with themselves after being forced to fight on the same side as their religion's [[TheAntichrist Antichrist]] (a.k.a. you).

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]].

** In the last issue [[spoiler: he's at his cabin, in the garden, his nerves wrecked by info-pollen. He lifts a gun to his mouth, and lights a cigarette with it, it was a novelty lighter. Then it hints he's starting to recover and keeping it secret.]]
