i named my xd 45 acp. the beast. mainly because when it holds 14 rounds of 45. it is something to be afraid of. and also when 14 rounds are in it, its heavy.

I have a silhouette pistol made from a .303 lee Enfield MkIV 10 shot detachable magazine, six inch barrel. She's called 'THE RECKONING' for obvious reasons.

August 8, 2006, 11:40 PM
I haven't named mine,but my friend insists on calling his pistol-grip Mossberg "the b***h". He learned that from Training Day.

Now listen up, you primitive screwheads. See this? This... is my boomstick! The 12-gauge double-barreled Remington. S-Mart's top of the line. You can find this in the sporting goods department. That's right, this sweet baby was made in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Retails for about $109.95. It's got a walnut stock, cobalt blue steel, and a hair trigger. That's right. Shop smart. Shop S-Mart. You *got* that?

Since my S&W 1006 10mm pistol is built so tough, I nicknamed it "Sherman" as in Sherman Tank. The other alternative was "Brick" as in "sturdy as a brick sh*thouse".

I nicknamed my .358 Norma Magnum "Mjolner" which was the name of Thor's hammer, because when something gets hit by it, it been Thunderstruck! My wife nicknamed it "your other woman".

I thought this thread was going to be about OUR nicknames.

Haven't named any of my firearms, but my friends refer to me as Burt.

(If'n ya don't get it, you've not seen a classic film;) )

When it's got the shotgun barrel in it, it's Clarence P. Rockafeller, when the rifle barrel is on it, it's Clarese P. Rockafeller. Together, they form a union built to protect ours.

I call my jalopy of a FAL "Bob", an acronym for Big oogly bas**rd.

The single shot NEF 12ga cut to 18 inches with a sythetic stock is the shoulder killer.

A very nice, early post-war .357 S&W (pre-Model 27) I inherited from my Dad will always be known as "The Cannon" to me; since it was made, there are a number of more powerful revolver cartridges that have come on the market, but since that's what he was calling it when he introduced it to me at a very early age, that's what it remains.

Otherwise, no, I don't give nicknames to the guns I have . . . although a few (A Colt Mk IV Series '70 Jammamatic and a Kahr P9) earned colorful and descriptive incestuous, scatological and other monikers that Art's grammaw wouldn't approve of. I have a silhouette pistol made from a .303 lee Enfield MkIV 10 shot detachable magazine, six inch barrel. Unless you somehow obtained an Enfield action that was never made up as a rifle, would I be right to assume it's licensed as an SBR?

August 9, 2006, 02:19 PM
My stainless T/C encore in .308 with a 18" barrel is "Shorty" :rolleyes:

My .300 Savage Remington Model 81 is called "Ol' Meat On The Table", because that's what Grandpa called it.

My .30-06 Remington 7400 has been called "Clear Cutter" - after subjecting a wooded hillside to a radical new lead-based deforestation technique of my own invention.

My Glock 21 has been christened "Doorstop" since I got an XD-45 this spring.

My old Winchester single-shot 16-gauge Model 37 is called "Live Hard", because every time my Dad looks at it he says "Man, we used to make 'em live hard with that one."

August 9, 2006, 03:06 PM
My Baby Eagle is named Jezabel:evil:

August 9, 2006, 03:13 PM
Personally - NO.

I do know of , and have used firearms with nicknames.

"Money Gun" for example earned that nickname.

870 in 28 ga with well over 300,000 rds fired thru it. Used by a group of us to shoot a variety of clay games, Like pump gun only events such as skeet, 5 stand, and where it first earned its nickname...Skeet Doubles using a Pump gun only.

Just see the man with the hat...or set your cigar box down over there...'fore ya step onto the pad... :evil:

My father has a Stevens scout called "Bud." Some past owner had carved his name in the stock, so it seemed appropriate to use the name.

Prior to the 1996 "buyback" my 18inch barreled 500 mossberg was "stumpy"

Prior to the 2003 "Buyback" my luger was "Heinie", the S&W M66 was the "Lady" and my Enfield was "mudgutz".

My Pedersoli 12 Gauge double muzzledloader wears "old Bodacious", and a good mate has a really rude name for my 12 guage Cashmore, which I wont repeat here.
