If so what?

    sometimes when they act up or get out of line I call them a mess of things, but I wold rather not repeat it here. I would hate for someone to run me in for verbal abuse and get them taken away [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

    On the other hand though there is

    "Mufasa"(Sendero 7 mag.),
    "The pig-a-matic" (SKS),
    "Little Lightning" (Ruger Compact 308),
    "My RIfle" (when talking to my daughter about my 25-06),

    and possibly one of two undecided terms of endearment for the new one coming shortly. Either
    "LR Rooter-Shooter", or just simply, "Tha Bad *****"(.270 AM). [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

    My 10 year old son has named his little youth model single shot 243 "Baby" since it looks so slight in the vault next to my rifles and shotguns. I call my 270 WM 'the lazer' and my coyote rig gets called 'pard' alot. (short for pardner cause I never go anywhere without it) My first rifle is a Winchester Model 61 .22 that my dad handed down to me when I was 8 years old and that one will always be known as "pride and joy". Now that you've got me thinking, I might just have to nickname them all [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

    robins:

    I have never been one to name my guns although I have somtimes used terms of endearment for them when they gave me fits.

    However, some of the guys I have shot with in the last few months have named my 7mm AM "Quigley". My wife heard about this and even bought me the movie Quigley Down Under since that's where the guys got the name for the gun. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    Like Lerch does, when someone asks me what I'm shooting I just say a 7mm mag but when they see one of the loaded rounds thats when the questions start.

    My hunting buddy has a 270 AM and he does what Lerch does and gets the same results when they see the little 270 round. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] Right now he just calls his "gone" since it's gone back to Kirby to be re-stocked.

    Besides "Dad's gun" and "Grandpa's gun" The only one I've nicknamed is "The Mag-Nasty" AR30 in 338 Lapua Magnum.
