* The traditional song "Froggy Went a Courtin'", recorded by hundreds of people including BobDylan and Bruce Springsteen, says the title character rides with "a sword and pistol by his side". Alright, I admit, there's no mention in the song of either of these being used much less simultaneously, but still the image of an anthropomorphic frog with a sword and pistol is pretty funny for a song that's OlderThanSteam.

* Gandolfini, the dark-skinned mage teacher in ''MahouSenseiNegima''. While most mages are shown using [[SimpleStaff staves]] or [[MagicWand wands]], his weapons of choice are a 9mm handgun and combat knife that he dual wields.

The child of GunsAkimbo and DualWielding - a character simultaneously wielding a gun in one hand and a sword in another, or another combination of projectile and melee weapon. This would generally be impractical, as you might want that other hand free to help you steady or something, but it is much, much easier to [[FiringOneHanded handle a weapon with one hand in fiction]]. Thank the RuleOfCool for that one.

Compare BowAndSwordInAccord, which substitutes guns for a different kind of projectile weapon, and SwordAndFist, where the character punches and kicks you instead of shooting in-between armed attacks. Like other fighting styles with multiple weapons, this may be a manifestation of Heroic Ambidexterity.
