Thread: Giving Your Firearm(s) A Name

  1. I generally don't name 'em, but do sometimes refer to my personal sidearm (1911 design .45) as American Express. For those who recall the Karl Malden commercials, I "don't leave home without it."

    I even trained Wife that if she were ever held hostage and heard me alternate reference to her "weak heart" with an offer to give the badguy everything including my American Express, it's time to "collapse" and stay down, because American Express will be speaking.

    I've never named any, but my wife refers to my Saiga .223 as "Natasha" or "your russian mistress".

    Since originally starting this thread, I've purchased four more firearms. All but one of them has been given a name. The List:

    XD-40SC - Dean
    XD-40 Service - Sam
    Mosin-Nagant 91/30 - Vanya
    Glock-22 - Castiel
    Glock-27 - Gabriel
    Shotgun - no name as of yet, tho leaning towards Bobby

    I just find it somewhat entertaining to name my firearms and vehicles. Plus, it's a sort of memory jogger for me, as well as allows Wife code-words to ask about me being armed while in Public.

  9. A friend who competes in Service Rifle called her last AR15 "Rosie," and her current rifle "Pookie."

    My wife and I use "code names" for our primary carry weapons, so we can refer to them in public without arousing "panic reaction" in the queasy. I carry a .32 Beretta Tomcat popgun ("Pops") when logical to do so and a Ruger SP 101 ("Stash") most of the time. Wife purse carries (or waist pouch) her S&W snubby .357..... "SWeety" (of course).

    The pump 12 guage is "The Cannon" and the AR-15 is "Crowd Control".
