    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.

    I have a Sendero-II in .264 WM that I call "Poontang" or "The Slut", cuz they are kinda gaudy looking with the polished barrel and black flutes.

    And I have a 50BMG that I call the "Hammer".

    The rest don't get names.

    Gun

    I just call em "my elk gun, bear gun, deer gun" etc. That way I can remember what I'm supposed to shoot that day by which gun I'm carrying. Clever, don't you think.
    My AK hunting partner has a RUM called "Rusty"

    OK, this isn't exactly naming a rifle but I thought it was neat. A friend said he was looking for his dads old single shot 22. His dad had traded it off years earlier (like 50) for something bigger. His dad had carved a poem in the stock "Hold me steady and pull my trigger, I'll bag em faster than you can figger." He got a name for the family that might have bought it and tracked it down. Cleaned it up and gave it back to his dad for a gift. When his dad opened the box he said the expected "Hey, that's my rifle!" I like that story...........

    After the last heated debate I though that something like
    this would ease the tension a little.

    And there were some interesting names .

    Thanks to those who responded and feel free to post yours
    if you havent.

    This is a great site and a little laughter will all ways help to
    loosen people up and get them to continue posting.

    Remember There are NO stupid questions only unasked ones

    Have fun
