    Thought about that actually which soon turned to just Mandy and I still don't know if I like them. I even thought about Bertha cuz the rifles is a big B*!$h. But feel that would be unfair because that would imply that she's ugly.:D

    mine is Matilda, though I am thinking a name change is in order for when she's back from the shop with the new barrel and stock

    Funny this topic came up. A few weeks ago my significant other asked me why guys named their rifles with a womans name. I couldn't really answer her other than telling her why all my rifles are named "Baby." She says, "Why is that?" I said cause everytime i'm making the shot I mutter "come on baby."

    I've got a straight stock .243 Win (Savage 110). This thing shoots .75 MOA all day with Federal "Power-Shoks," the cheap ones with 85gr. SPs. Haven't found anything that shoots better yet! Put it in a laminate stock and painted it with textured paint for some grip. Me and my buddies call her "The Pig Wench"! She has killed about 15 antelope and about 8 deer. With various people shooting it.

    Anyways, first thought with your gun was "Camo Queen," then I thought,
    "THE QUEEN"! Sounds pretty cool, I think!:D
