    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.

    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".

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

    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 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.

    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.

    Since I collect historic military firearms, I am just proud that none of them are named "Bubba."
