Hey do any of you guys name your rifles, or have a nickname for them?

For the longest time my girlfriend didn't know who or what i was talking about when i would mention Daisy or Zeus. :o

After yesterday I will call my AR "Oh F@#$ Kevin is mad that I just out qualled him with an $800 franken-built-AR and now his face is all purple and he owes me coffee and a gunlist subscription"

Kevin when you read this, I want to formally offer to trade my Ar for yours, and no I will not pay you the $2200 difference.;)

I have twins, triplets, quadruplets, quintuplets, etc.... but for some reason I cannot remember their names or sometimes even tell them apart, so they just go by:

My pistol

My rifle

My shotgun

(As an added bonus, that way the wife only thinks there's one of each.)

My Rifles and Pistol names are:
Ar15A4: Declaration
M1 Carbine: Daisy May
Springfield GI 45: Betty Sue

In the Corps my issued rifles had a few names, and my two crew served weapons on my Amtrack Elanor were: Mk19 Greta and the M2HB was Big Bertha.

Not into anthropomorphizing machinery... except when it doesn't work correctly. Then it has a name, but it's unprintable on a family site. :D

I think naming a gun is silly but that doesn't mean you shouldn't do it:D
