Black Lagoon and Jormungand are very similar in the veins of action/shooters and organized crime. Jormungand has not as much insane, over the top action as Black Lagoon does, but it makes up for it in story. It's story is more centralized and seems to be following a specific route. If you enjoy Black Lagoon, you're sure to enjoy Jormungand, because it seems like they are almost set in the same universe.

Both Black Lagoon and Jormungand are manga about a group of mercenaries of sorts. Lagoon Company in Black Lagoon does jobs ranging from smuggling, pirating to escorting and all of those contain a fair amount of gunfights. The group from Jormungand is in arms trading business, so what they mainly do is smuggling and theft (not so far from pirating). I don't think I need to mention that those also involve lots of gunfights. If you think that such groups can only consist of people who can't really be called normal, than your right on your money. Anyway, as you can see those series are similar, so you really should go read one if you liked the other.

Both Black Lagoon and Zero In feature this non-combatant guy who comes up with strategies and plans for his trigger happy gunslinging girl companion (or in case of Zero In girls). In case of Zero In it takes several chapters before the character roles get established. If you like action series with lots of gunfights, you probably can enjoy both of those manga.
