I really don't think marvl is a victim of his own misspelling . . . I've heard it pronounced pick-uh-tinny

Correct.  Though the "uh" in the middle is very short.  (Used to live in NJ and knew people who worked at Picatinny Arsenal).

I believe it's pic-a-ninny.

LOL at Doublefeed.

Some other things (mispronunciations) that annoy me:

-Pronouncing Leupold like "leopold"
-combining the "ch" when saying Franchi (its pronounced "FRANKIE" people!!)
-Heckler and COCK (no no no!!!)

My pet peeve is people that pronounce "Steyr" like "Forkdtlepoocker" [:D]
