    Ensuite, vous devez le nommer "Libby".
    Although it might be more "French" to use "Libi" as in "ley Bee." But, one might need an outstanding mustache or a predilection for clove Galois.

    If it doesn't alert when I call it, I don't see the point in naming it. Each to his own, of course.

    How about "Popeye"?

    The French Connection is a 1971 American crime thriller film directed by William Friedkin. The screenplay, written by Ernest Tidyman, is based on Robin Moore's 1969 novel of the same name. It tells the story of NYPD detectives Jimmy "Popeye" Doyle and Buddy "Cloudy" Russo, whose real-life counterparts were Narcotics Detectives Eddie Egan and Sonny Grosso.

    Gene Hackman (Popeye Doyle) left home at age 16 and lied about his age to enlist in the United States Marine Corps. He served four and a half years as a field radio operator. He was stationed in French IndoChina (Qingdao and later in Shanghai).

    My wife and I have names for certain things that are part of that, "only married people understand it," language. "Big Ugly" is my .45 S&W Model of 1917. We don't name all our guns, just that one.

    John, thanks for the idea but I don't really think I can call it that.

    I’ve got three sons and maybe 50 or so hand guns. I’ve been known to run through all three sons names on occasion in conversations, no way am I gonna name guns and try to keep them straight……;)

    OMG, my wife usually takes 2-3 trys to get any of the kids or grandkids names right. It has become the family joke.

    Victor.

    I prefer to name my guns after a man. That way I'll be able to trust it.

    I named my GP100... Baird. That way Smith, and Wesson, and both Bill Sr & Jr are all rolling in their graves.

    I second this one…”Liberty” :thumbup:

    This is my model 10-7. It’s a Hong Kong C&E revolver. I just ordered a set of Service Panels for it from Altamont. When I got it the blued steel was in excellent condition but it had these ugly grips on it. I have a feeling some Customs & Excise Officer swapped grip panels on it before it came back to the US.
    It also resembles a Victory model.

    It did not. I added that myself. It sure makes them easier to shoot with that type of grip.
