I know many folks give their favorite weapons a name. Usually a name most commonly used in reference to the fairer sex, although this is a rule not chiseled in stone. (My father has a 6 inch stainless Ruger Vaquero in .357 Mag he named "White Eyes"...never even asked him why, but when he passes I get to fight my little brother for it).
Until recently, I had not named any of my firearms because none of my arms have really displayed any individual characteristics warranting a name.
This changed just the other day.
While I usually use ear plugs while shooting, the last trip I had forgotten to pack any, so it was the Muffs that I usually have in the trunk (for those goofballs that think that their hearing is bullet-proof),for me.
While shooting my pet AK, I noticed this weird harmonic ringing in my right ear. At first I thought that I had not gotten a good seal with the muffs. Then I realized that it was the vibrations of the AK's springs being transfered through the stock to the shell of my muffs!
So, seeing as my rifle likes to sing to me, and likes to suck the life out of my wallet to keep itself fed, I have dubbed it "Siren".
Interested in the names you guys have given any of your firearms and why you named them what you have.
