In myth and legend, and stories of epic proportion a weapon having a name isn't all the odd. Has anyone done this for real?

You'll get bonus points if you even have the name engraved and post pics.

None of mine have names

^Using T-Rex as my guide, I named one of my guns "Samantha". It started as a joke, but the name stuck.

Mine got named by the company that made them, I've always found that good enough.

No, but I have a corvette named Jesica...........don't ask, botd violation

All named after porn stars.

I want them to work it hard, even when very dirty, and to take anything I feed them.

I did when I started out, but the size of the collection has since made it impractical.

So... if George Foreman owned ARs, would they all be named "George"???

After a while you run out of names.

Or at least the ability to remember them.

My FAL is my pig hunting/Homeland Defense rifle.

Since I love pork products, and I wouldn't hesitate to give certain US hatin' troublemakers a taste of her, I call her

man, i was filling out the warrenty card for my new gransfors bruks axe this morning. one of the fields asked for "name of axe" and i spent 10 minutes thinking up a cool name for my axe before i realized it ment "type" of axe. i wanted to write down OTIS anyway. but i put "small forest axe" like they wanted me too.


edit: i named my dog saiga.
Link Posted: 12/1/2007 4:29:28 PM EDT
Of course

My AR15 is named "AR15", my Glock 19 is named "G19"...

Link Posted: 12/1/2007 4:31:16 PM EDT
Only one... My first: a Norinco 56s underfolder I bought because of the impending AWB in 1994

Named it "Hillary" after the cunt...-ry's first lady at the time.

Haven't got around to naming anything else

I refer to my 590 as my pig.

Several years ago I was wandering around a funshow. Guy had an old Bushmaster ARM Pistol laying there. Looked it over and wandered off. I kept finding myself returning to his table. I was drawn like a magnet. You guessed it....she followed me home. She has a name...


I also named my beach stocked Swiss K31. She's Swiss, sexy and blonde. She's....

Little Bastard - because it is.

Ma Bell - reach out and touch someone

Thumper - FAL

Giving a gun a name is silly, unless the gun earns it. Then it's OK.

I'll only name my rifles after they've drawn blood.

My BAR .30-06 (which I've had for twenty years - it's NEVER malfunctioned and I've killed I don't even know how many deer with) is called - you guessed it - "Old Reliable".

My A-bolt .300 Win Mag (which has a black synth stock) is called "The Black Death" or sometimes "My Black Bitch".

My oldest brother had an old 12ga ss that he nicknamed "somtompson". Sometimes it fired and sometimes it didn't. He told me that when I was a kid and I still think back on those times with fondness.

Two of ours are named, so far. AR#1 (husband's) is Virginia - "Because she was my first." AR#2 (mine) is Molly, after the revolutionary Mollys:

The harum has increased since this subject last came up a couple years ago,
but now there are eight lovlies vying for my attention. And they are:
Colt 6520LE....Kristen / Colt 6920LE....Shirley / Colt 6721LE....Debbie
Bushie A2 HBAR hybred....Annie / Bushie M4A2....Susie Q / Bushie XM177E2
....Sheila / CMMG M4A3....Sarah / Armalite A2 middy....Nancy
There now, I got all their names right , without having to ask them. Their
names are loosely connected with girls who's traits somehow remind me of
the weapons themselves. I tried to do this with FALs long ago but it didn't
work as well.
Link Posted: 12/1/2007 7:30:42 PM EDT
No, but when I get an AK, I will name it "Mishka" (the double-diminutive of Mikhail).
Link Posted: 12/1/2007 7:34:07 PM EDT
Only the older historical guns.

Lili Marlene for my WWI Broomhandle.
Nena the Nine for my Red Nine Broomhandle.
Natasha for my Bolo.

No, and I don't plan on doing so for any purchases I make in the future. It's just an object.

I don't name my guns but my wife calls my AR-15 "Lorraine" and says it's the other woman. The other day I was cleaning it and she said "Playing with Lorraine again I see".

Yes, my guns are my harem...and they all have a name...

However, I can't keep their names straight anymore..
Link Posted: 12/2/2007 4:02:52 AM EDT
I usually end up calling mine" God damned son of a bitch!!"

Of course it's usually the ammo's fault!!!

A few keepers have been given names.

Meet Big Smile

Pedersoli Sharps 45-70. It is a world of fun to shoot.

I have an old .44mag Marlin that has been 'old Betsy' for as long as I can remember, and for reasons that now escape me. All of my kids have always referred to her as that for as long as they could speak.

I named my mini-14 'Robin', after the HLN hottie.

I named my 270 Rem 700 "Shiva". Then I found out that Shiva is a dude, so I don't call it that anymore.

My 4 yo calls his S/S 22 "April" and his brand new Armalite "Lightning"... alas the AR was mine for about 30 minutes until he claimed it

My 10 year old built his AR when he was 7. He promptly gave it a name so awesomely appropriate I have been jealous ever since. He named it "Juju".

Main Entry: juju1

Part of Speech: n

Definition: a charm or amulet with magical powers; also written ju-ju

Definition: the magical power of such an object

Etymology: French joujou 'plaything'

I refer to my AR as "The Slinky" on accounta the noise the buffer spring makes. Does that count?
Link Posted: 12/2/2007 4:02:07 PM EDT
If I ever get a pair of identical handguns one will be called "The Diplomat" the other will be "The Negotiator"

That might be cool on a pair of 1911s.
