Related: How do I mark an inventory item as trash?

I'm in the (very) early game, but I've got a couple guns that I really like. What this means is that I've got a LOT of guns that I immediately mark to sell as trash.

It would be super awesome if I could just pick these inferior guns up and throw them into a side pocket of my backpack, never to be looked at again.

Is there a shortcut to immediately mark a gun as trash at the moment I collect it, without going into the inventory menu?

Additional information: I'm playing on a PC and that's the platform I'm interested in, but solutions for consoles would be nice as well.

Are you talking about a Windows/Mac keyboard macro? – CyberSkull Nov 29 '12 at 0:29
@CyberSkull - anything would be fine really – Steve V. Nov 29 '12 at 0:30
What I meant was what platform are you running the game on? That has a big effect on the keyboard/gamepad shortcuts. – CyberSkull Nov 29 '12 at 0:31
@SadlyNot: I have the distinct feeling it won't cover PS3 or 360, if there's even a solution for Macs and PCs. – MBraedley Nov 29 '12 at 2:36
I was hoping there was a way to do this too – Ben Brocka Nov 29 '12 at 19:14

I don't think such a thing exists (ability to mark the weapon as you pick it up). But my system is pretty simple: I evaluate guns soon after picking them up - those I like get a star, those I don't get red X. Later, when I pick up more guns, I can easily find them because they aren't marked at all.
