Some People

Some people name their rifles. I have one. "Gummint Cheez." Just a 1894C that Nancy Pelosi bought me with a tax refund boondoggle (thanks, again, Nancy.)


Other than that I am on the fence about naming a rifle. Don't want to fetishize or anthropomorphize a gun. That's what the bad guys do. It's how they assign a moral value to an item rather than an action. Gummint Cheez is just funny, and I can get away with it.

However...


I need a Callahan Full Bore Auto-lock, double cartridge and ~mumble-mmmble~, with a custom trigger.


A Vera.

Wonder if he got that at a gun show loophole?

If you name a gun, name only one, your favorite one, and than never get rid of it.

I name them all. It makes it easier to discuss the in front of people.

"Son, I think Sasha needs to talk to these people."

I even have one named Vira!

I've named only two. The first is Conan the Borg, the second, Baby Blue.

I have a lot more than just those two, but they're the only ones with names.
