** Zane Cooper also does this after taking down the bad guys during the climactic card game. [[spoiler:The fact that he does it the exact same way as Bret is a clue they're actually father and son]].

* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'': In the episode "The Cartridge Family", Homer acquires a revolver to protect the family, despite Marge's protests. In one scene, he enters the Kwik-E-Mart twirling it and whistling casually, and accidentally scares Apu in the process.

* In ''VideoGame/HalfLife1'', Gordon does this as the IdleAnimation for the revolver. The ''VideoGame/BlackMesa'' FanRemake applies this to the Glock.

* Revolver Ocelot of ''Franchise/MetalGear'' does this, seeing as how his weapon of choice is a single action revolver. He does it during his ''entire'' introductory speech in ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid'' game, and in [=MGS3=] he's seen twirling his original service pistol, and a ''crossbow'' at one point, and then with three pistols at the same time in some crazy UpToEleven variant of Russian Roulette. Before his boss battle he does a complicated series of tricks with a revolver in each hand.
** In ''The Twin Snakes'' remake, Ocelot twirls his weapon with his off hand [[spoiler: after his other hand gets sliced off by the Ninja.]] However, he ends up dropping the gun -- then picking it up quickly and pointing it at Snake.

** In ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid3SnakeEater'', Ocelot uses his twirling guns for a practical purpose: to protect himself from a swarm of hornets. He spins them as they fly at him and they fall down dead.

** The Heavy Weapons Guy 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 ...

** The Engineer does this in his taunt for the Pistol and the Wrangler, complete with blowing the smoking barrel out. The above mentioned glitch lets him twirl his own shotgun in the same way...only Engie ISN'T so big his shotgun looks like a handgun in his hands!

* Fox [=McCloud=] does this when finishing up his B special in ''[[VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Super Smash Bros. Melee]]'', whether after one or more shots. Don't most blasters lack even a trigger guard (which might be useful)? However, in the ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'' universe, his own blaster shots cannot hurt him, and by default don't hurt his teammates either.

** In addition, the 1911 has a grip safety- it literally can't be fired with just a finger on the trigger.

* Used in ''{{Gears of War}}'' on two weapons. The first is the Gnasher shotgun where after a non-active reload animation they spin it by the lever. In the active reload however they forgo the flair entirely to get back to shooting faster. The second one is the Boltok revolver in Gears 2 and onward with the weapon specific execution. The character grabs the gun by the barrel, whacks the victim across the back of the skull, then spins it on their finger to return it to shooting position. More forgivable since executions are intended to be AwesomeButImpractical.

* 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.
