My favorite gun, thankfully, was on my person when the burglars took my 800 pound gun safe.
(Note to self, and all – bolt your safe into the wall and foundation, even if it weighs 800 pounds!)
She’s been previously described – a custom Colt NM slide over a Vega frame, Bo-Mar sighted, Swenson ambi-safetied, Micro-bushinged masterpiece.
I christened her the B.H.S.M., after the previous owner: The Bob Hall Signature Model.
A lady friend names all her firearms: Betsy (akin to Mike Hammer’s gat), Precious (a Silence of the Lambs reference) and many others. She calls the BHSM Bobbie, as guns should have female names.
Of course, the most famous gun name in recent history is from the Sci-Fi cult hit Firefly, wherein Jayne Cobb tries to trade his favorite rifle Vera, for Captain Mal Reynolds ‘wife’ Saffron. Fair is fair, right?
Do you name your firearms? Or just a special one? Is the naming in keeping with the time-honored tradition of naming machines women’s names?
