    I just bought my first gun. She's a Ruger gp100. I have named her "Maggie" because she is chambered for .357 magnum. Not very original, I know. And I DO refer to my gun as Maggie when talking about her to friends. :D

    Anyone else want to 'fess up to naming their guns?

    I recently was given a rifle that used to belong to my uncle, and to my father before him.
    Long before either of them had it, someone scratched "JW" in the stock.
    The running joke is that it was John Wayne's gun, so it's called "The Duke".

    My daughter named her rifle "Schmee". A couple years back "schmee" was a filler word that you used if you couldn't remember a word you were trying to say (and also means "stuff"). That way if she talked about it around anti-types with her friends, they wouldn't know.

    "What are you doing this weekend?"
    "Schmee with my mom" :)

    My wife's grandparents have an old 387 that they call Molly. It's pretty common for Molly to go to town with them.

    I could not name them all, but the "special ones" sometimes get names.

    I call my scarred up old .338 I carried guiding my business rifle. Does that count?

    I am one of those who can remember faces, but not names.
    Realizing that I have such a problem, no, I don't "name" my guns (as it wouldn't do me any good)

    Now if you want to know about that m1911a1 with the idiot slide release scratch and Kart barrel........
