* ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'' has a character perk called "Gun Nut" that gives your character improvements concerning the use and maintenance of firearms. ''VidoeGame/Fallout4'' takes it further by letting you customize all your weaponry so long as you have the right perks.

* WebVideo/ForgottenWeapons host Ian Mc Collum knows a lot about guns. Every episode he goes into detail about the history of the gun and disassembles it, with interesting facts about its inner workings, but also the reasons why the gun was forgotten. His knowledge on guns is so broad he's called [[FanNickname gun Jesus by his fans]]

*''Podcast/TheMagnusArchives'': the episode "First Hunt" is narrated by Lawrence Mortimer, a British man visiting America to go on his first hunting expedition with internet-friend Arden Neally. He's keen on guns and shooting but is limited in pursuing his interest by the UK's restrictive gun laws. When he gets there he is very excited by Arden's gun collection.

* 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.
