comment
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })A character whose life revolves around guns. They like to read about them, have memorized large amounts of facts about guns, know all the models and ammo types, subscribe to the magazines, are in the NRA, make frequent trips to the gun range, and have a large collection of them. Due to various laws regarding firearm ownership and use, the Gun Nut does not actually have to meet all these criteria, as long as they are truly obsessed with guns. When the Russians invade or the Zombie Apocalypse occurs, you can expect this person to step up to the plate.
This character is not automatically The Gunslinger, a Crazy Survivalist, or Trigger Happy; it is common for the creator of a work to just lump these traits into the same character, so there is often overlap. See also Pyromaniac. There's also "geardos" for Gun Accessories. Often prefers More Dakka.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })May be a wielder of a BFG. Contrast Does Not Like Guns. The Sister Trope is Knife Nut, who prefers cold arms instead of firearms.

Highschool of the Dead: Kohta is a self-proclaimed "gun otaku", but as he is a sixteen-year-old in Japan, he doesn't actually own any. He did however go to America and learn how to shoot at an NRA camp.

Boomstick, one of the hosts of Death Battle, is characterized as a highly stereotypical gun-loving redneck from the Deep South. In the character preview for Yang Xiao Long, he compares the world of Remnant (the place where Yang is from, a monster-infested Death World where every single weapon is also a gun) to Disneyland. In his own words, "the happiest, most gun-filled place on Earth."

Lassiter of Psych also qualifies as this. He's also Crazy-Prepared, hiding dozens of guns in his apartment. One episode had the police confiscate guns from apartment, some of which they couldn't even find such as the one hidden in a bowl of M&Ms and one hidden in his shower head. He is also always armed, he brought two handguns to a softball game and even brought one to his own wedding.

Eureka: Jo, current GD head of security, former deputy and Army Ranger, has gun tropes galore. In addition to the Wall of Weapons she keeps in the Sheriff's office, her love of BFGs, and a tendency to be Trigger Happy, she also can be seen reading magazines throughout the series, with names such as Modern Mercenary.

Rally Vincent of Gunsmith Cats. She's studied guns so much she can learn all sorts of things just by looking at them or holding them (such as knowing whether or not it's loaded). Even worse, she faked her age (gun laws where she lives require her to be 21; she's only 19). And then there was the time she used her gun in a very naughty way...

Billy Rosewood reveals himself to be one in Beverly Hills Cop II when Taggart and Axel visit his home. He begins using progressively larger guns later in the film, firstly switching his standard service revolver out for a Hand Cannon and then stashing three shotguns in the back of his car, going Guns Akimbo with two of them while wearing a Badass Longcoat in the final shootout.

Sledge Hammer! takes it to another level: He seems to have a deep relationship with his Magnum e.g. he shares his bed with his gun, takes it into the shower and frequently talks to it. He also uses several other firearms from flare pistol to rocket launcher but, as star David Rasche noted, Sledge is ultimately monogamous with his Magnum.

Halloween (2018): Laurie Strode, the Final Girl of the original 1978 film, became this as a result of her experiences, growing up into a paranoid nutjob armed with a ton of guns who has spent forty years preparing for the day when Michael Myers would come back. Sure enough, he does. (Oddly enough, her actress Jamie Lee Curtis is a staunch supporter of gun control in real life, and was fully aware of the irony. As a compromise, the filmmakers had it so that Laurie wouldn't own or use any semi-automatic, assault-style weapons like AR-15s, instead restricting her arsenal to old-fashioned revolvers, pump-action shotguns, and hunting rifles.)

Resident Evil:
Resident Evil: Barry Burton is probably the most clear-cut example, wielding his beloved Colt Python. Unfortunately Barry doesn't seem to take precautions, as his kids Moira and Polly got into his gun cabinet and Moira accidentally shot Polly. No one died, but Moira's hated guns and her dad ever since. It didn't help that Barry blamed Moira for pulling the trigger, and not himself for letting her reach the trigger.
Resident Evil 2: Secondary character Robert Kendo, who designed the upgraded S.T.A.R.S. "Samurai Edge" pistol is another example, although as the series veered further into Gun Porn it's hard to find a protagonist that doesn't lovingly customize their firearms.

Fallout: New Vegas has the Boomers, a tribe who came from a Vault with an overstocked weapons armory who left due to being too gun-crazy. All of them are armed with explosive weaponry, train constantly in VR sessions and protect their turf (Nellis Air Force Base) via heavy artillery.
A lesser example are the New Canaanites, post-war Mormons who consider the maintenance and usage of the M1911 and other weapons made by Mormon gunsmith John Moses Browning to be an important part of their culture.

The 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 loving focus on all of them in things like loading pauses, making it a game where being a Gun Nut for made-up firearms is a valuable skill, especially in Ultimate Vault Hunter Mode. In-universe, while almost all the playable characters like guns (including bruisers like Brick and Krieg), Gunzerker player character Salvador in Borderlands 2 considers applying More Dakka to be Better Than Sex and has an entire tree called "Gun Lust" about how much he likes guns.

Shino Asada of Sword Art Online. She's a bit of a unique case, however: she's severely gun-phobic due to an incident with an armed robber when she was younger. She took up the hobby in an attempt to "face her fears" and conquer said phobia. It's not too effective, as she still freaks out upon seeing a real gun, or even a realistic model.

Shinji loves all things military, with his love of guns only second to Humongous Mecha. When he bumps into Sosuke on Kanami's deck they get so distracted talking about weapons that they forget why they were even there in the first place.

Tackleberry from the Police Academy films is a big gun nut, as is his mother and his girlfriend (later wife) & her family. Some of his side of the family are nuts, too. If not, it's because they're Boisterous Bruisers instead who sucker-punch each other for fun. In 4, he ends up meeting a sweet widow named Mrs. Feldman who ends up going straight to his heart by proving she loved guns as much as he did.

The incarnations of Maya Jingu in Burn Up W/Excess and Burn Up Scramble achieve the trope in slightly different ways. In W/Excess, she keeps a Wall of Weapons and each of her guns is named, and she goes pretty nuts when she can't shoot. In Scramble, her obsession appears in the fact she keeps guns everywhere...usually next to her other obsession: plushies.

The Magnus Archives: 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.

Ritsuko Inoue from Those Who Hunt Elves. Her gun-nuttiness is a natural extension of her obsession with all things military.

The Laundry Files: Laundry armourer Harry the Horse, to a T. His office is described as basically looking like the scene from The Matrix after Keanu Reeves says "Lots of guns", if it was lit by a single naked bulb and shared with a spider. Harry can rattle off the specs of anything in his armoury (which is everything from flintlock pistols to weaponized basilisks) and takes a great amount of glee in blowing large holes in things at the firing range. However, unlike many fictional gun nuts, Harry is obsessive about safe gun handling, and firmly believes that guns are a last resort. He says outright that if a Laundry operative needs to use a gun, they've failed.

Burt Gummer from Tremors loves his guns, and cleans them lovingly. He's such a nut (and the monsters are that badass) that he bought himself an anti-aircraft artillery cannon. He married Heather because she was just as obsessed with guns (not just any weapons, but guns!) as he was. They had trained the rest of the town on survival techniques before the movie began. (They live in the middle of nowhere; survival strategies are necessary.) After the first time, Heather left Burt and took half the guns with her. (the monsters had left them with half a house already). In the fourth movie, we see Burt's ancestor; his interaction with the monsters prompts the gun nut trait. Burt Gummer is particularly notable simply because of his status as a reversal of usual Crazy Survivalist — while Burt is definitely a survivalist, he's not crazy, and is frequently one of the more calm and collected characters in the movies. He is solidly cemented as a Gun Nut in the first movie, where a Graboid makes the mistake of breaking into the wrong goddamn rec room.

Ryo Saeba from City Hunter. He's an expert, has quoted some random facts (when they were relevant to the plot, but he still did it), owns a large collection, and is often seen shooting in the range in the basement of his own home (this is justified: given Japanese gun laws, that shooting range and collection of his are illegal and a one-way ticket to prison if discovered by a cop who actually cares).

In Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater, Big Boss loves the customized M1911A1 he's given and can describe all the customizations in loving detail. He'll even do so a second time if you give Sigint a call after getting it, going into even more detail than in the cutscene where he receives it.

Nakmor Drack In Mass Effect: Andromeda certainly qualifies. In order to help Ryder get over Alec Ryder’s death, Drack sends the Player Character a collection of shotgun images. Upon first contact with the Angaara, Drack sends you another email gushing about their rifles (the angaara sniper rifle is the best in the game). Ryder can become this, with multiple ways to customize your favorite guns and even give them names.
Garrus from the original trilogy is also one. He spends two games calibrating your frigate’s main gun, Squees big when shown the Scorpion and Arc Pistol the first time and when trying to flirt with a random female turian at a bar talks about “this big gun” he wants to show her.

Thank You for Smoking: Bobby Jay, the firearms industry spokesman, is packing multiple handguns at any one time. Also a bit of a Heroic Comedic Sociopath, with Nick noting that Bobby joined the National Guard after witnessing the Kent University riots, as he wanted to shoot at college students too. Instead, he got sent to fight Panamanians, who shoot back.

The Full Metal Nutball from Feng Shui 2 loves guns. Absolutely LOVES them. He delights in all manner of ordnance, and his hideout is bristling with all kinds of legal and illegal weaponry. He doesn't have much experience with them in contrast to the real guns and killing types in the Chi War, and when he meets such types, he can hardly contain his enthusiasm.

Brainstorm, inventor and master weapon designer of The Transformers: More Than Meets the Eye. Unlike most examples he is tends to more interested in developing new firearms than actually fighting: he's a Technical Pacifist who stood still, unable to pull the trigger, for ten minutes the first time he actually tried to shoot someone. Whirl from the same series is a straight example.
