How can I create one object and have different parts within that object and select them individually in edit mode?

A good example of what I mean is in the video linked below, where he has one gun object but can select different parts of it in edit mode.

Blender 2.90 Low Poly Weapon Rigging. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pgLSHwex1dM

Don't make understanding your question rely on downloading a file, watching a video or visiting an external site. Use the builtin tools to upload images or gifs, along with thoroughly explaining the problem in written form so it can be indexed and searched for thus helping future visitors with similar issues. $\endgroup$ – Duarte Farrajota Ramos Jun 17 at 16:51

  • $\begingroup$ you can create several meshes within the same object, you can also join several objects with Ctrl J and they will be different meshes within the object $\endgroup$ – moonboots Jun 17 at 17:13

You can create several meshes within the same object, you can also join several objects with CtrlJ and they will be different meshes within the same object. As explained by Allen Simpson, you can select a whole mesh in an object with L.
