Default Do you name your guns?

If so what did you name it, and why did you name it that?

I don't, I am not that creative. I didn't even get to name my kids, the wife thought I would get that wrong. (LOL) Maybe that's why I call them by the wrong name all the time.

Call my 30/06AI "The Black Bitch" because it's just so nasty and mean on pigs, goats etc and being built on a black B&C fibreglass stock and M98 action it weighs in at 3 kg's and is nasty to bench as well.
I call my new project rifle a Ruger M77 22/250AI the 'Foxinator' because that's what I built it for to drop foxes out to 400 yds and so far it's made a real mess of the couple of foxes I've pizza'd so far.

Only a few:
Since most of my deer hunting is in "shotgun only " zones, I've had a Marlin 512 Slugmaster for years that I named "The Supplier".
A Savage-Stevens Model 24 .22wmr over 20 gauge named "Sting".
An S&W 19-3 .357 revolver named "The Beast", and a SS Ladysmith .357 named "The Roaring Cricket".
And of course, every muzzelloader I buy gets the monicker "Ole Smokey".

No. Till they start cutting the lawn or painting the house, the generic factory description's good enough.
