    My rifles have their own names stamped into them,,, no need to rename what's there. Ha

    But me on the other hand,,, I'm the one that gets the nick name,,, """Yo Hanns Miss""".

    That's what it's all about for me now days,,, take a well dialed in rifle,,, ammo,,, and optics and try to drop the bomb on the X,,, medium size cartridges that can't push the booltiz forward,,, so the trick for me is to luanch them high into the sky and hope that they land on the paper or gong at a 68 degree angle... LOL...

    Nothing like blowing out the legs that supports the irons down range,,, at least I know I have contact when the whole thing tips over... Ha

    If I had a pretty 308 I'd name it "wish it was bigger"

    I've got a Remington 700 BDL .270 Win. that I put in a Brown Precision stock about thirty years or so ago that I call "Meat On The Table"! She just doesn't miss. Another one that I really like is a Howa 1500 in .338 Win. Mag. that really lives up to it's name of "Thumper"! (And that's not named after the little bunny in the Bambi movie either!)
