* An old bit of German folklore talks about a marksman who makes a [[DealWithTheDevil deal with the devil]] to obtain a set of seven magical bullets; six of them fly wherever the shooter aims them and strike their target without fail, while the seventh is controlled by the devil with predictably unfortunate results. This legend is also the inspiration for the opera ''Theatre/DerFreischuetz''.

* ''TheGrimnoirChronicles'' by Larry Correia is full of these. The story takes place in an alternate reality of the 1930s where a small but significant portion of the human population has magical abilities. Though the main characters are all powerful mages, they also train with and routinely use conventional weapons including firearms extensively.

* The Magic Gunman, who uses a gun in tandem with magic. Aside from simply being another means of bringing the pain, magic spells may supplement the missile weapons, such as [[TimeMaster time spell]] that makes it easier to land [[BoomHeadshot headshots]], or using [[MindOverMatter telekinesis]] to rip an enemy out of cover. The Magic Marksman is commonly found in UrbanFantasy and GaslampFantasy settings, where magic exists but using a sword or a bow simply wouldn't make much sense.
