    Talking Firearm Names?

    Has/does anyone here name their firearms?

    I never have, but now that I have a 870 HD, I nicknamed it Mars, after the god of war, because it is such at close range

    Curious to here your responses.

    When I was carrying a custom .45 a few years ago I often referred to it as "John Moses" sort of as a code, as in "John Moses and I are going out to dinner". The place I was working all the management knew I carried and occasionally when we had to work late the manger would say “Why don’t you and John Moses walk the ladies to their cars”. The new gals wondered why I was the only one walking them to their cars.

    The wife refers to the Rem 1100 with pistol grip stock, mag extension, side saddle and 20" barrel as "Boomer". But I generally don’t name my guns.

    I think this says it best:

    "Now listen up, you primitive screwheads. See this? This... is my boomstick! The 12-gauge double-barreled Remington. S-Mart's top of the line. You can find this in the sporting goods department. That's right, this sweet baby was made in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Retails for about $109.95. It's got a walnut stock, cobalt blue steel, and a hair trigger. That's right. Shop smart. Shop S-Mart. You *got* that? "

    I always refer to my GLOCK 19 as my piece... Although my new Kimber is in the mail going to my NY FFL... I might call her KIM or Kimberly...

    Just so no one fesses up to naming his M-14 "Charlene. "

    It was named that when I first got it because my wife did not want to say "gun" around our 4 year old daughter. The daughter now knows about the gun, but for some reason we still refer to it as the "nug". This works out good as some of her apartment leasing customers are real skank of the earth, and when we go to these properties to show them, either my wife or daughter will say to me upon seeing a skanky prospective customer, "got the nug Dad?" I just smile. She hated it at first, now she asks if I have it.

    Not a namer, other than my euphemism for carry piece - which is ''my friend''!

    No, never have and never really thought about it.

    When it comes to naming things (kids, dogs, cats, etcc) I've never had the knack for it.

    ie. My cat is named Georgia. I got her in Georgia (humane society rescue). My dog I had for the longest time was named Oscar. I was watching the 6 million dollar man at the time. My dog after he died was named Lady, after Lady and the Tramp. Luckily, no one has asked me to name any kids .

    Man, I'm so uncreative

    All mine are named. I'll tell my wife, I'll be back, I'm taking my mistress to the range to make noise.
