    I am with, The Rock,

    Might and have had some choice names for myself, but the gun has always done it's part when I do mine!

    I have a deal with my shotgun, when I do my part and IT misses, then I can buy a new gun, it might be a shame to regulate that bird breaking machine, that by the why has broken more birds that I know I missed then I can keep track of just because it misses one.

    But what the heck I may have a name for it after all, "MINE"!

    I like Gunnery Sergeant Hartman's thoughts on the subject from "Full Metal Jacket" speaking to his marine recruits. "Tonight, you pukes will sleep with your rifles. You will give your rifle a girl's name because this is the only (expletive) you people are going to get. ..... You're married to this piece. This weapon of iron and wood. And you will be faithful."

    I was always told that if you have anything of much value to you and you hold near and dear,you have to give it a name,ie guns,motorcycles,boats,and cars.Target gun=Mardelle,Old triumph=The Bugle,Goose Gun=layla,Boat=MyakenasII(my achin ass II)Target Rifle=Ex(not because I'd like to use it on the Ex,because it will hit the X!)Etc. Ya get the picture.

    A few Years ago when I was shooting SCTP my whole squad had names for there guns, My Beretta always got picked on cause it had one of those blue and grey laminate stocks on it and really stuck out on the gun rack, then it got even worse when my old dog Tater puked on the barrel on our way to shooting practice one night (never knew it could strip bluing off that fast) It's hard to recall all the names it's been called, but I do remember a guy naming it "Thunderstick" cause it is very loud for some reason.

    If you name your gun and then put it in the rack. When you call it, it still won't come. Why waste the time.
