    Gun nick name?

    Other than "your/the gun" what do you call it? I'm imagining being over heard by my parental sheep if I ask the wife, or she me, 'do you have your gun'?
    "Scum Dispenser" seems to be a favorite here. Looking for others' creative ideas used when not wanting to alert others as to content of conversation.

    My wife and I travel a lot and carry all the time. When ever I must refer to my firearm I just refer to it as “My Friend”. No one knows what we are talking about.

    My carry gun is named Miss Anne Thrope. We just call it "Miss Anne."

    I chose the name partly because it tickled my punny bone, but mostly because it serves as a constant reminder that no matter how fond I am of the gun, the gun does not like me and never will. It would kill me or someone I love in an instant if I don't treat it with respectful caution.

    On a lighter note, I have an NAA mini-revolver with white perlite grips. Its name is Minnie Pearl.

    My wife is not familiar with firearms. If I say AK, AR-15, 30-06, etc, I get blank stares in return. I named the guns so she knows which one I'm talking about.
    Only one naming rule in my house: handguns are named after male characters in pop culture who go by female names.

    The Glock is Betty (from Kung-Pow, enter the fist)
    1911 is Lorretta (Monty Python, Life of Brian)
    The .357 is Sue (boy named Sue)
    The wife has already picked the name Alice (Alice Cooper) for her future 1911

    Rifles:
    MAK-90 is Bridgitte (Bridgitte Lin, Hong Kong actress)
    AR is is Veera (from the rifle in Firefly)
    The M-1 Carbine is Josephine (from my favorite marching cadence)
    The 30-06 is Hillary (because I hate that evil )

    It all started with the little NAA revolvers. I got one and happened to call it "The Cricket" (from the movie Men in Black) and it stuck; in fact now, any mouse gun we refer to it as a "Cricket".
    Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.

    I have always had a problem with these anthropomorphisms. They are machines, inanimate, tools, property. To assign name gives them the attributes normally only assigned to the living. If I sell, trade, or give away a firearm, it is not a personal loss, perhaps only a material one. I can buy a replacement for anything I own. My guns, while important to me, are not important enough to treat as other than possessions.

    Got a brace of Glocks....Pancho and Lefty

    I call my shotguns Sin and Redemption.

    The real reason for the names (and they are silly I know) is so my wife and I can talk about them in public without anyone being the wiser. Most often she'll just ask if "my buddy is with me"
