You might be a redneck "IF"

A while back I saw a post with the mention of a rifle by name.

Well I was wondering how many people would admit that they
might be a redneck because they name there rifles.

I know of at least 3, myself, specweldtom and maybe a man that
builds long range rifles ( I'll let him identify himself )

So I though it would be interesting and funny to hear some of the
names.

My favorite rifle is a little 7/08 that goes every where with me by the
name of "BABY"

Note: This is not a poll ,"It's just for fun"

Might be worth a few laughs ?

J E Custom has another one he didn't mention; a 7 WSM called Big Baby. My 7-08 is Ugly Baby. One of my daughters hunts with a Mod 7 stainless 7-08 that she named Pretty Baby. My .30 x .378 is Henry Wayne. We have a few more that may get names (only if they earn them). We built all except Pretty Baby. Sounds like redneckery run amuck, but it's very easy for anyone in our family to know instantly which rifle any of us is hunting with.

We have very high standards, too. I refused to paint Pretty Baby's stock pink, and we don't name shotguns.
