    "Mister Mojo",
    next to seeing a youngun out hunting with a gun that just warms my heart. [​IMG]

    littletoes, I had set-up for deer on the side of a ridge just below the crest at the base of a tree. Snow was on the ground and with the rifle lying across my legs I decide to shift my position. For some reason the buttstock shifts a bit and moves in the snow. But the snow was hard. [​IMG] There was a bloomin fieldstone just under the surface that did the deed... [​IMG]
    Never, never, never do that but I did. Now if it had been a VS stock that gun would have just laughed...

    Also shoot a BDL Varmint in 222, picked it up at an eeeeeville gunshow in Harrisburg two Decembers ago.
    It's my American Express rifle, never leave home without it. [​IMG]

    skinny, i call all my guns by model or cal except for one. i was hot for a hornet when ruger came out with the 77/22 hornet i was on three waiting lists. finaly got it, early model slim barrel,then the trouble started and i am still working on it. it is now a k-hornet. i cant post the names i have given it. maybe the pistols and shotguns are ok but the rifles are bad news. i dont understand why they are bought stripped and rebuilt with after market parts. buy a cooper and enjoy it right out of the box. bob

    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]

    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.

    Most of my guns are just "gun". [​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] [​IMG]
