just had to ask. people think iam wierd because I have a name for each of my firearms. just wondering if iam the only one. name them incase have to tell my wife to grap on that I dont want anybody knowing what we are talking about.
example.
long guns girls name handguns depends.
ar15- Bonnie
full size 1911- Clyde (shtf pair)
30-06 same name as my wife because its pretty, accurate and deadly
12 gauge matilda sounds like a fat girls name(if this is your name please dont be affended.)
my ultra carry I call it mini me. my wife calls hers persila( dont know why)
and my berreta u22 neo I call Lisa, because of a little annoying painful girl we know.

Am i the only one. I understand if you have like a hundred guns, but I only need the 7 I got, less calibers and more time to be perfect with practicing with just 7. One for every reason.

Whatever trips your trigger. I have a few more than seven, about fifteen, I do not name mine I just call them my babies. I am getting where I cannot provide each as much attention as I used to but my shooting has changed as I have gotten older. Less high power rifle and more mouse caliber rifle. I just cannot stand up to or afford three hundred rounds of 30-06 a day anymore.

Yep

Yep, cars, boats, guns,house-- all get named by me.

My home is Wildflower

My car is Beautiful Ride (a song I really like)

Sold the boat- was the After You-- I'd call people and tell them to
come down-- I named the boat "after you". My next will be
the Frankly My Dear.

Have many guns-- but , for example,
I have 3 CZ52's--
First was Zarkov (huge fan of orginal Flash Gordon with Buster Crabbe)
so second was Flash and 3rd Ming.

My fav Mosin Nagant 38 is Butch, my K98 is Hogan. My .22lr 66 is Wild Thing,
well, you get the idea, by digging around the safe, you could find all 7 of the
Dwarves -- my fav .22lr revolver is Doc. My SW Trooper is Thumper.
I'm in awe of Disney's work. Always have been.

Anyone?

never thought about naming my weapons, but off the top of my head...

Saiga .223: Tucker. After Chris Tucker, who is cool, skinny, and very loud
WASR-10: Vlad
Maverick 88: Rhames (after Ving Rhames. NOTHING ON EARTH says BADASS more than Ving Rhames with a shotgun)
Taurus PT92: Baby
Sigma .40: BAM BAM
Marlin M60 Mouse

Yep, I have...

George-Win. 1300
Ivan-M-44 Mosin-Nagant
Izzie-Marlin model 60
Bob-Ruger P-90
Sting-NAA .22 cal derringer

No name yet for the Yugo SKS or the AR-15 still waiting for their names to be revealed. It sometimes takes a while. The other thing is, there is a story to each name that makes it more meaningful.

My wife named her Ruger P89 Babs.

My wife in general knows the guns I have, but to pull one out of the case and know "that is an M44" is a bit harder for her.
Hence nicknames:
M44 - Boomer with thing on the side
M38 - Boomer
91/30 with round receiver, laminated stock - Long, pretty boomer
91/30 with hex receiver - Long, old boomer.
