If you've ever seen the movie Caddyshack, (who hasn't) In the tournament at the end when Ted Knight pulls his putter out for the "all the marbles" shot. He strokes & kisses it saying Oh billy, billy, billy, billy...yeah thats me.

The members of the family named all our carry pitols.................... kind of a safety code. If there was ever an emergency situation, the key phrase, "what about Bob" or "Tommy" or Ross" was a key that there was trouble Identified.

Other than that..........................No I haven't - at least not yet

i call my mauser "big sexy" lol.....a guy comes through burger king a few times a week and drives a older style PURPLE geo tracker..with BIG SEXY on the top of the windshield......stole the name from that lol.....(i work at BK if you wonder how i know and see the guy all the time lol) this year i was sighting in my rifle and the rear sight popped out(some was taken out by me but a spring type thing was in there and i left it be...i have a leupold on it..and had to take the sight off to clear the scope) and came home and handed him the gun to see if its "important" its not....but he told me i need to buy a real deer rifle...like a model 70 or 700....i took offense to that statement! why would i need a new rifle?? it looks better then most 70s or 700s except maybe high dollar fancy ones...and will shoot with them all day....and brings home the meat.....what more can you ask for?? it is heavy.....but its my BIG SEXY!! love that gun...maybe becuase it was the first gun i actually BOUGHT and paid for myself??

I guess of all my guns I have only named one, its my Sako TRG-S chambered for the Lazzeroni Warbird. I couldn't think of a better name than THUNDERSTRUCK after the AC/DC song.

"...You've been THUNDERSTRUCK..."
