i have a winchester model 70 in 270 win that my day gave me. it is named "pots" cause what ever it shoots at ends up in pots. not original but it has been called that since it was given to me.
I forgot more than I remembered!

After hiking up and down canyons, hunting everything that I can get a tag for, I end up calling all my main hunting rifles the same name, year after year..
Now mind you I am soaking wet, tired, bloody, cold, starving, and I have to stop at every little flat spot to rest.

I call her:
Heavy B*tch

I have trekked down into a 5500' canyon multiple times with my 18lb 7mm STW on my shoulder. I have threatened to leave her down there until the next season a few times. Or thought about getting it airlifted out has crossed my mind several times!!!

my bushmaster v-match is called "splattermatic" ... hence the user name...
the 300 rum after my 2 friends saw me shoot a cow elk at 723 yards, is now called "thunderstruck" by them.
