My custom 6mm-284 is the Boatanchor
My custom 56# 338lapua Imp. is the MOAG (mother of all guns)
My bushmaster AR-15 is the POS (I'll let you figure out what that means).
It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.

What's in a Name?

My 277 AM is called Medusa after the mythological creature. Just to gaze on her is certain death.

My buddies named my last rifle "Frankenstein". It is a 788 Remington action that has turned a brown color, stainless barrel, powder coated green scope base and rings, blue/scratched/dinged scope and 788 wood stock that has been reformed, sanded, and painted with Krylon Camo colors with my leaf pattern from trees in the yard. Not pretty but the 25" Stainless 22-250 AI barrel will reach way out there and touch'em. This rifle really shines in the Prairie dog towns and coyote hunting.

I let other people come up with the names...

Once I hear the name (it just stands out), I get the magazine floorplate engraved with the name.

My first one is actually my login name. Deathray7. My older brother called my 7mm STW that about 8 years ago when he looked at the ballistic charts.

#2 is my .375 Ultra Mag. One of the guys here at work said it was just plain "Overkill" and that name stuck.

My .340 Weatherby Mag got the name "Bloodtrail" from my guide in Saskatchewan this year after I shot my whitetail and he said that in 20 years of guiding he'd never seen anything like it.
