This is like getting mad that people call all glock pistols GLOCKS and not by their G19 or G69 or what ever them doorknob makers call them.

My pet peeve? Don't have one. Damned thing got fleas, and we had to get rid of it.

But I am mildly irritated at:

M1 Grands
8mm Mousers
Mussel loaders
Muzzle breaks
Endfields
Lugars
Windchesters
Mossburgs AND
Smith & Westerns

Looks like spelling is your pet peeve.

tail gaters are my pet peeve. Makes me want to just slam on the brakes and let them cath the rear bumper of my Ram in their winshield.

Slayer- if you chewed, a little Beechnut will get them to back off- if not, a good heavy duty hitch thru the radiator does it. M14s- no, not the spelling- people PRONOUNCE them like that! (altho I will admit to searching on-line auctions for misspelled firearm names- have picked up a couple of bargains from folks that could not copy what was written on the barrel!)

That is hilarious.

Aside from guns, I have "ample" supplies of military edged weapons (knives, bayonets and swords) and binoculars. "Ample" as in, hundreds and hundreds. I discovered the same thing you did about people misspelling when selling.

Some of my best items came from ebarf and GB due to misspelling.

Getting their little junk car's radiator OFF my trailer hitch has also been one of my peeves. {Although I note that if I just continue driving it will usually eventually drop off in 6 to 10 turns of a corner.]
