* MadArtist gunslinger Jhin from ''VideoGame/LeagueOfLegends'' [[RealityEnsues demonstrates the danger of this trope]] in his joke animation: He twirls his gun, but slips up and drops the gun, which proceeds to fire everywhere as Jhin cowers in fear, taking back the gun only once he's sure it has stopped firing.

* Kevin from ''WesternAnimation/CaptainNTheGameMaster'' does this frequently. Which is odd, because his Zapper doesn't have a trigger guard.

** One of McCree's emotes is a showy display of Gun Twirling. He'll also give his revolver a quick twirl when activating his Ultimate.

* In ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'', you meet Joshua Graham (the Burned man) in the ''Honest Hearts'' expansion with him doing this while preparing some Colt M1911s. Oddly, his twirling of the guns is done in a very safe way - he ejects the magazine and locks the slide before giving the gun a half-twirl to check the barrel, then twirls it back and reloads the gun once he's satisfied. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=41OghI3p6fM Have a look]].

* For the sawed-off shotguns in the ''VideoGame/{{Marathon}}'' series, this is the standard method of reloading. The exact mechanism for this is [[HandWave Handwaved]] as being "too complex for [the player's] mind to understand".

* It's a favorite skill of Vash the Stampede in ''Manga/{{Trigun}}''. Despite the monumental size (and possibly weight) of [[HandCannon the gun in question]].

* The Heavy Weapons Guy in ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'' does it with ''a shotgun''... Although to him a shotgun is practically the size of a handgun.
** There's also a [[GoodBadBugs popular glitch]] that allows him to twirl his ''Gatling gun''. Makes you wonder what they put in that sandvich ...
