* In ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'' and its [[Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaAs sequel]] [[Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaStrikerS series]], Raising Heart and company become increasingly gun-like over time, even getting clips, cartridges, and a trigger in TheMovie.
** As the page image shows, this is actually the standard weapon used by Enforcers. However, few of their weapons ever become as gun-like as [[SpellMyNameWithAnS Raging/Raising]] Heart. Storm Raider, the usual device of the character in the picture, has a combat mode that looks more like a Dragunov SVD than a magic weapon, Teana's Phantom Mirage is either a single or a pair of sci-fi looking pistols and Runessa's Silver Dagger is an actual firearm with an Armed Intelligence mounted on it.

* ''TheBattleForWesnoth'' features Dwarves, who use [[FantasyGunControl thundersticks]]. The sprites show something like flintlock muskets, but the portrait for the Thunderer/Thunderguard has a hand cannon, as described in RealLife below.

* ''Series/Earth2'''s native aliens, Terrians, wield special staffs that allow them to channel lightning-like energy bursts or magnify sunlight into a powerful light source.

* ''Series/Earth2'''s native aliens, Terrians, wield special staffs that allow them to channel lightning-like energy bursts or magnify sunlight into a powerful light source. More of a subversion of the trope, as these aren't the usual directed energy weapons, though they can be used well in self-defence.

* [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cane_gun Cane guns]] are precisely this trope: [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin a gun concealed inside a cane]]. They see a lot of use in SpyFiction, which is TruthInTelevision to some extent, but most real cane guns are carried by defense-conscious [[BadassGrandpa elderly folk]].

The Boom Stick is the high-tech (or magical) variant of the Simple Staff. This is a gun shaped like a staff, that fires projectiles (or more often, energy blasts). If of the magical variety, it could also be a "focus" for the user's magic power, making it easier to fire magic bolts, though the user is still perfectly capable of using just his hands. Often the idea is that they give a certain regal flair to their users, and is handy to use in melee if needed. Of course, such weapons would be unwieldy and hard to aim. What differentiates the Boom Stick from the MagicWand is that the Boom Stick is not necessarily magical in nature, and even if it is, it has little other use in performing magic than for shooting people. If it is capable of regular spells that instead is a MagicStaff.
