Re: Do you name your guns?

I don't have that close a relationship with any of my firearms to feel really comfortable calling them by their first name, let alone to name them like I would a child.

But S1's made that harder for me - I do find myself saying "I'm going out to shoot the Wolf today...". Now, when I start calling it "Wolfie", well then - I think I've will have gone too far! [img]images/icons/shocked.gif[/img]

Re: Do you name your guns?

I Don't normally name them, but I do have a Winchester Model 70 that is known by either "Maggie" or "The big long shiny gun" even though it is no longer the longest, or shiniest rifle I own.

It was the first rifle I bought for the express purpose of reaching out beyond 300 yards and making repeatable, one shot kills.

Re: Do you name your guns?

Most of my guns are just "gun". [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]
However, one of my earlier varmint rigs was named the "BLACK MAMBA". Every inch of this rifle is black and it has a nasty bite.
Later on I built a much snappier rig which was called "Ol' Sparky". Flames all over the stock and a few projecting from the muzzle when I launch bullets from her 22-243AI chamber. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]
