    What's your favorite gun term?

    Just curious to see what people's favorite terms for any type of gun are.

    Even though I never really use these terms myself I am partial to reading or hearing the following terms, I always get a kick out of them.

    roscoe
    smokewagon
    heater

    So, what are your favorites?

    A real man loves his wife, and places his family as the most important thing in life. Nothing has brought me more peace and content in life than simply being a good husband and father.

    A strap is a fairly common one that makes me chuckle.

    I've always liked the old-school term of 'roscoe'. I never really cared for 'gat'.

    I have been known to occasionally refer to my .45's as "ashtray flinging angel of death".

    'Assualt Weapon', and add 'Assualt Magazine' to that = totally Fictitious terms. They are my favoriates because they are false.

    In reference to a standard capacity magazine, of course.

    This might seem odd, but I almost never call them "guns". I just don't like the sound of the word. For me, it's always "side arm", "firearm", "semi-auto", "pistol", "revolver", you get the idea.

    Heater and "My Buddy" are my favorites.....Pistola comes in a close 3rd, just like the way it rolls of the tongue I guess

    Boom Stick is a classic!
    Scary Black Rifle and High Cap Magazine Clip (as DontTreadOnI stated) are my new favorite FEAR MONGER terms
