In A Black Day For Mayberry, Andy was wearing a gun in order to help protect the gold truck. What other episodes contain scenes where the high sheriff made use of a firearm in the performance of his duties?

He wasn't really "making use of a firearm in the performance of his duties" but kinda.  In the episode when the "Man With A Limp" shows up and Barney thinks he's going to harm Andy, Andy does have a gun handy--just in case.  But he doesn't reveal it and the repentant ex-prisoner never knows it was there.

Although not shown, in this same ep, 'High Noon In Mayberry,' Barney mentions that Andy once shot Luke Comstock in the leg during a filling station robbery.

In Season 6, "Aunt Bee Gets a Job", Andy grabs Warren's gun and shoots out a tire as the counterfeiters tried to escape. And there was a fellow walking in the background in the direction of the shot, so Andy got a little reckless there!  Had Barney been around there would have been ample warnings to "watch out for the flying lead!"

All Aunt Bee could say was "Well, just because they are going out of business is no reason to shoot at them!"

Andy was skeet shooting with Thelmer Loos attractive cousin from Arkansas.

In the ep where Barney swallows his gum while in the barn, Andy has both a revolver and a rifle plus the walkie-talkie.  I think?  Have to go watch that one again. 

He held a shotgun on Goober (haha) and told him to "get that car out of the courthouse...right now!"
I was watching "The Big House" (aka The Rock) yesterday and Andy was carrying a shotgun, looking to capture the other two crooks. In fact, he used it to re-capture Doc and Tiny, the two crooks Barney couldn't keep in the cell, even with Gomer's assistance!
In Barney's Bloodhound (lollipop-eating Blue), Andy strapped on a gun to go looking for Ralph Neal.
He not only wore a gun, but actually fired it into the air in, "A Fued is a Fued." Calling the bluff of Mr. Wakefield and Mr. Carter.
Andy wore a gun when he arrested the two guys at the end trying to beat up Jerry Van Dyke, when he caught them with stolen purses, in the last B&W episode: Banjo Playing Deputy.
Just watched The Manhunt and Andy wore a gun while looking for the escaped prisoner.
Well, that's eleven so far, counting the skeet shooting!
