If so what did you name it, and why did you name it that?
HK USP .40-Big Bertha
CZ-550 synthetic .308-the reaper
Mossberger 590 mariner special purpose-My boom stick
I am still working on approval from the German government for an AR-15 by Oberland Arms. First I get a no, but now I am getting a maybe. Will find out in a day or two. If a get a no, I will buy a Beretta Storm Carbine in .40 or .45. Well anyways I will name either one the Equalizer.
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.
Nah, never really got into that, not really attached to any of em at an 'intimate' level
Call my 30/06AI "The Black *****" 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".
They all go by the same name...."mine"
No. Till they start cutting the lawn or painting the house, the generic factory description's good enough.
I have some real choice names for them when there is a jam or fail to feed!
I know a great name for .50 Barrett. The compensator.
Nope, I never name them. First of all, I couldn't remember all of the names in my modest collection.
Donn, your post reminded me of a great joke!
A guy walks into a bar and sits down at the end of the bar.Not long after, a sultry, voluptuous, 30-something brunette sits down beside him. They strike up a conversation and inevitably the topic of sex comes up.
After several drinks, the brunette says to the guy, "I'll do anything you want for $300!"
"Anything I want for $300?" he asks.
She replies, "Anything, anything at all."
The guy reaches for his wallet, pulls out $300 and hands it to the brunette.
"Paint my house," he says.
My friend named my sp101 "Steven The Asskickers Sidearm" and it just stuck
My glock 20 picked up the name 'the beast' and I had an old bp kit gun pistol that was nicknamed 'the terrifying gun' because everyone who looked at it was afraid it was a trigger actuated grenade.
I had a Savage 110 Tactical that I nicknamed AT&T.
"Reach out, reach out and touch someone.
Reach out, reach out and just say hi."
I got it before you explained it strat -- funny right there.
Of course I don't name my guns. Couldn't remember 'em if I wanted to anyway and I'm not insulting anything that eats and detonates cartridges. I do know a guy who names his guns...
He has a sorta popular niche website and videos. Imagine a bug-eyed version of Quentin Tarentino who never moved away from home, always wears the same shirt, knows a whole lot about his guns, gives each one of them a typically teutonic name and only calls them by it! The last bit is just icing on the cake of a social misfit IMO.
I named my AR 15, ARLENE!!
Since I collect historic military firearms, I am just proud that none of them are named "Bubba."
Yes in deedy..........
The next rifle I get will be named Flea Flicker....................
Do you just call it Steve for short?
