    So as the title says, just wanted to know if anyone else names their pistol(s)?
    I haven't come up with one for mine yet, (A Sig Sauer P229 9mm) but my dad named his S&W Model 629 44. Magnum "Rosebud" maaaaaaany years ago....

    Anyway, just curious....

    My 1911 is named Deimos. I want to get a stainless 1911 as well and call it Phobos, and get a left-side holster for it.

    I haven't named any of my firearms but years ago I called my 1970 F100 "Too Loose La Truck", it rattled real bad. I call my newest mobility scooter "Helen Wheels".
    Perhaps if you would use a real computer you wouldn't have to apologize for not being able to do so many things on the internet!

    No names for my guns. I have 3 kids and keeping their names straight can get confusing.

    I named it Fugly because I paid a total of $250 for it 16 years ago , it needed a new finish so I had a cheap park job done on it . Its has a pretty loose frame to slide fit but its is unbelievably accurate shooting guns I own . So now 16 years later the park job is worn smooth and it rattles like hell but has never let me down .

    Mine won't tell me their names. They just whisper inside my head when they want to shoot or be cleaned. Sometimes they just want to be stroked and lovingly caressed.

    (joke)
    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.
