try this again... so there was recently a thread about typing terms... this made me start thinking about different terms people have for guns, their guns, friends guns, types of guns, and just guns in general... so, lets get creative, what have you heard guns called... or called them yourself?

I've heard guns called "smoke wagons" but I have to say I don't understand this reference at all. I understand the smoke part, but what about a gun is similar to a wagon?

Roscoe is very common slang for a gun.

Hmmm, I've had my Winchester called 'the Hungry Rifle' because when I aim it at something it's about to become lunch.

Smoke wagon may be a play on the rolling wheels of a wagon and the revolving of the cilinder on revolvers, AKA wheel gun.
I like hand cannon. I like to call my glock by its first name, Gaston. I think it sounds more refined, I know polish a turd its still a turd but it makes me laugh.

I think my favorite is "ratchet" refering to handguns as tools. Others are "heater", "burner", "strap", "piece"

Fuzzy Bunny gets my vote ... as in ...

I pulled out my Fuzzy Bunny and let him have it ... :eek:

My Makarov is called a Mak ... the rest are just plain Fuzzy Bunnies ... :cool:

My Sweetie is all the time asking me if I've got my piece or saying she forgot to strap on her piece ... Just can't get her to buy into Fuzzy Bunny ... :rolleyes:
