Default Suggestions for names of guns?

Yeah, I'm currently brainstorming ideas for a variety of weapons similar to firearms that will be featured in a book I'm writing. They fire spinning razor discs rather than bullets, and the diameter of the disc is measured in inches for the ammo size.

So far I've come up with one name: The .98 Impasse, a handheld discshot which fires discs roughly the size of a quarter (hence the .98 part).

Can anybody else offer any interesting or catchy names I can use for this line of weaponry?

Some writers of old west novels often mentioned dimes. They would write about a gunman loading shotshells with stack of dimes. This is stupid for a couple of reasons. For one thing a stack of dimes to fill a shotshell in those days amounted to a weeks wages for a cowboy. The other reason the low density dimes when fired had the effect of falling leaves past a few feet. Firing any kind of disk from a gun is not likely to be a very good projectile. Bullets are all about mass and velocity I think flying disk fail on both counts. And in closing, Code of the West- Rule one, Never name anything you may have to eat.

These are guns specifically made to fire discs and intended to breach a type of armor in the story that is nigh impossible to pierce, it must be cut.

Anyway, this is fiction, so I'm just looking for cool names for ranged weapons of this sort.

I wouldn't use "Impasse", as that means you have come to a standstill or you are deadlocked. The concept sounds interesting. When I was a kid they had toy guns that fired little plastic discs and those things would go a long ways, they stung pretty good to when you got shot by them.

As to names? I got nothing right now.
