Police arrested the first man in Ramsgate, Kent, at around 8.20am after receiving reports of a man brandishing a gun during a disturbance at a property.
He was arrested on suspicion of having an imitation firearm by armed officers who pointed submachine guns at his head during the arrest.
Police have swooped on two armed men in separate incidents across Britain today.

The Fairey Aviation Company Limited, a British aircraft manufacturer, founded in 1915, with bases in Hayes in Greater London and Heaton Chapel and RAF Ringway in Greater Manchester, was appointed the parent company of the Burtonwood Repair Depot (BRD) in September 1940, and Mary Anne Site was developed for the BRD.
I cannot make any payment for any items, but I will credit your work. Burtonwood airfield was opened on 1 April 1940 as a servicing and storage centre for the modification of British aircraft. Altogether, there were three control towers on the base over the years.
Burtonwood Road, which takes you over the modern junction 8 on the M62 motorway, is the modern name - it was originally called Cow Lane.
There used to be a pub called the Limerick on that road, owned by the local Burtonwood Brewery, but it was eventually demolished to make way for an extension to the runways.
Despite reconnaissance flights over the base by the Germans, the site was only bombed on two occasions, with little damage.
Most of the bomb damage was aimed at the larger cities of Liverpool and Manchester.
Also, Burtonwood was laid out in such a way that if one section was bombed, work could continue in another area.
The facility was transferred to the United States Army Air Forces (USAAF) on 11 June 1942 to become a servicing centre for the United States Eighth, Ninth, Twelfth and Fifteenth Air Forces aircraft.
Burtonwood was also known as Base Air Depot 1 (BAD 1), although an RAF presence continued until 21 October 1943, when the base was officially handed over to the Americans.
Burtonwood was the largest airfield in Europe during the war with the most USAAF personnel and aircraft maintenance facilities.
The roar of the engines in the test beds could be heard for miles around, especially at night.
