* The ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands}}'' franchise is defined by its absurd number of possible guns, due to the procedural generation system (the original can generate upwards of ''seventeen million'' guns, and the sequel has, in the words of Randy Pitchford, "enough where it doesn't matter"), and its [[GunPorn loving focus on all of them]] in things like loading pauses, making it a game where being a GunNut for made-up firearms is a valuable skill, especially in [[HarderThanHard Ultimate Vault Hunter Mode]]. In-universe, while all the playable characters ''like'' guns (except possibly Brick, sample quote "I punch it"), Gunzerker player character Salvador in ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands 2}}'' considers applying MoreDakka to be BetterThanSex and has an entire tree called "Gun Lust" about how much he likes guns.

Note that people in RealLife who fit this trope often find the term derogatory, for [[CaptainObvious obvious]] reasons, and [[BullyingADragon it's not a good idea to piss these people off]].

* BradPitt, who in a 2015 interview said that he has been training with firearms "Since kindergarten."
* RLeeErmey is such a gun nut, he even had ''two'' shows on TheHistoryChannel about guns. ''Mail Call'', which lasted seven years, featured him [[ExcusePlot reading people's questions]] about guns (as well as other military-related questions, usually involving explosions), then going down to a military base and getting TriggerHappy as he explained the weapon. ''Lock N' Load'' was a short series where he talked about the history of various guns (and tanks, knives, artillery) and then went [[IncrediblyLamePun ballistic]] on watermelons. He's now getting a new show on the Outdoor Channel.

* Ove of ''{{Film/Headhunters}}'' claims he keeps a firearm within reach of any room in his house. At minimum there's an automatic at his bedside and a handgun and ammo in his fridge. One of his pastimes is loading them with blanks so he and his girlfriend can run around the house shooting at each other.

* Tackleberry from the ''PoliceAcademy'' films is a big gun nut, as is his mother and his girlfriend (later wife) & her family. Some of his side of the family are nuts, too. If not, it's because they're {{Boisterous Bruiser}}s instead who sucker-punch each other for fun.

In 4, he ends up meeting a sweet widow named Mrs. Feldman who ends up going straight to his heart by proving she loved guns as much as he did.

** Contrary to what many fans want to believe, FPSRussia, better known as Kyle Myers, is far from being Russian. He merely plays the character of "Dmitri", but he is an American residing in the state of Georgia. He has himself debunked the myth in [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VsfaqLN6-iA this video]].

* ''ResidentEvil'': Barry Burton is probably the most clear-cut example, wielding his beloved Colt Python. Secondary character Robert Kendo, who designed the upgraded S.T.A.R.S. "Samurai Edge" pistol is likely another example, although as the series veered further into GunPorn it's hard to find a protagonist that doesn't lovingly customize their firearms. [[spoiler:Unfortunately Barry doesn't' seem to take precations, as his kids Moira and Polly got into his gun cabinet and Moira accidentally sot Polly. No one died, but Moira's hated guns and her dad ever since.]]
