Commander, Combat Commander. I'm not a big fan, preferring the full-sized Colts.. but the names, just the names, are enough to put a grin on my face. They sound so.. authoritative.

Pocket Hammerless, 'though I'm not sure this was factory-given or just a name people gave the 1903

That Beretta 93 up there... was that a prototype?

Ruger/TALO Night Watchman is a good one.

Colt Agent and Detective Special, and also S&W Chief's Special and Bodyguard are classics.

They had my hopes up that it might be in .22 Magnum, but no such luck. Maybe when they release the Glock 88...

Speaking of 88s, Mossberg Maverick 88 sounds cool.

And who can argue with Mossberg Persuader?

I just remembered that I also have a Mossberg 500 “intimidator”

Factory laser shotgun. Has a laser built into the front forearm that is quite cool. The laser activation pad is easy to activate with your fingertips when holding the forearm. Mine also has a Butler Creek side folder installed.

Lets put that up against a Buckmark, Mark IV or even a Smith Victory. Not sure what they are trying to accomplish with that one.....

I was thinking the same thing. Before the snowflakes began wetting themselves over ARs, the mere mention of the Street Sweeper caused them to soil their little lace dainties.

There's just something perfectly right about that revolver...

My guns are named Bob, Jim, Roger, Williamina, Fido and Spot. Should they have middle names too?

I'll go with Geoffrey Chaucer for $100, Alex: My late father named his first-year Ruger Old Model Super Blackhawk .44 Magnum, "Sweet Lips." The name is based on an early and incorrect translation of "The Miller's Tale" from Chaucer's Canterbury Tales, ca.1380. In the translation my father read the line was rendered, "Speak, sweet lips, that never told a lie." The next lines related to the throaty voice of the Blackhawk:
"Thus, Nicholas let fly a fart like unto a bolt of thunder, so that with the stroke he was almost blinded."
It's a great description that attests to the humor of the man.

Bob

I hope I'm not the only one who still remembers these:



__________________
Avoid the temptation to replace everything on your brand-new 1911 just to make it "better". Know what you're changing out and why. You may spend a lot of money fixing things that weren't broken to begin with. Shoot at least 500 rounds through it first, then decide what you don't like and want to improve. Regarding vintage 1911s, pre-1970 pistols are highly collectible in original, unaltered condition and should NEVER be refinished or modified as it completely ruins their monetary value.

I like official names like A1, R1 and A2 but nicknames like BFG and "pocket artillery" also work for me.

Cheers,
Dave

My vote is on the new Highpoint 9mm pistol. “Yeet Cannon”
It’s a DUMB NAME. It’s either a 1911 or it isn’t. If it’s not a 1911 it doesn’t count.

I DO care what it's called, if the name is roll-marked in large font.

Being the regular, jeans-wearing civilian Joe I am with "NIGHT RECON TAC TEAM OPERATOR" on my gun, at the pokey little indoor range is embarrassing.

Because it's fake. I'm not that kind of guy myself, and the gun isn't issued to the guys who do that stuff anyhow.

It's ninja fantasy baloney.

I see it like the guys who put equipment decals on their cars without actually having the stuff. Or racing-required tow-hooks mounted to plastic surfaces.

It's just silly.

My thoughts exactly. This is one of the reasons why I prefer a naked slide. Plus, it just looks cleaner.
