    I work as an Adapted Physical Education specialist in Plano, Texas. I cover nineteen elementary through high school campuses, driving between four to six campuses on any given day.

    Today I took a different route to one of my elementary schools (cutting through a subdivision). Lo and behold- Ruger Dr., half a block away Berretta (yeah, they misspelled Beretta). Got curious and found these streets in the same neighborhood:

    Hawken
    Sako
    Marlin
    Webley
    Mossberg
    Smith
    Wesson (several blocks away from Smith)
    AimPoint
    Beeman (BB Guns!!!)
    Savage

    I already knew about Browning Dr- it's a couple of miles away.

    My best guess is the developer was a gun owner. Noticeably absent was Hi Point, but there is High Point Park one mile away.

    Ever once in a while - just ever once - I miss living in Texas.

    Not too often, but just at times like this.

    Cool.

    Just down the street from me is Revolver, Derringer, Six Shooter, and Rifle streets. The sad thing, is they are turned into trash town, crack hoses and such.

    Does living ~5 miles from the Ruger factory (on Ruger Road) count?

    Rifle Range Road and Gunbarrel Road come to mind. There's also a town between here and Nashville called Winchester.

    Nothing in my town that I have seen but now I'll have to look.

    I did drive past Gunbarrel city in Texas once. :D
    It put a smile on my face when I saw the name posted.

    We have a "Rifle Range Road" here in Montgomery, Al. I can't recall any others off the top of my head, but I would not be suprised if there were.

    There's a subdivision in South Austin with a whole bunch of 'em. Gatling Gun Drive is one of my favorites. (No MiniGun Circle yet though...)

    In Austria, they once re-named a street "Glock" in honor of Gaston Glock. They had to change it back because people kept dying when they crossed the street! No one crosses Glock and lives.

    From time to time I will drive out in the countryside and go by FM 1911. Coincidence I am sure but makes me smile nontheless.

    A rose by any other name....

    Yeah, subdivision developers use lots of "patterns" to name the streets in their plats. Family's names like Emily Drive, George Street, golf and boating terminology, whatever.

    We have a Gunbarrel subdivision out here north of Boulder CO.

    What I have to laugh at is how all these yippie hippie liberal lefty yuppies move into these subs and feel all outdoorsey and frontiersey because they live on "Flintlock Drive" without any conceptions whatsoever as to the historical importance of the flintlock or the gunbarrel in the development of our country --and its root philosophies.

    I still want to buy a house on 1911 Browning Drive if one exists.

    Or even 45th Ave. Close enough.

    Or 1903 Springfield Street. Woo hoo!

    Don't know about street names, but there is a town named "Remington" not too far from here. And of course Winchester but everybody knows about that one.

    And lots of streets and such named for Civil War generals (both sides) around here for some reason or other. :D

    In a subdivision in NW Austin that I lived in for a couple of years, there are:
    Matchlock Cove
    Chainfire Cove
    Flashpan Cove
    Buckshot Trail

    along with a bunch of hunting/game animal names
