One Man, 36 Gun Nicknames

Last week, we gave you some of the craziest gun nicknames that have appeared throughout history. This week we offer up 36 original nicknames that all come right out of one man’s arsenal.

  2. For the Rifle I’d go with the Red Scare. The Pistol definitely trouble. The shotter baby Nasty all the way.
    I have a cheap 9mm made by Bryco Arms, a Jennings. I’ve just always referred to it as the garbage Disposal.
    Only gun I’ve ever nick named but for a Cheap Lil 9mm it hits right on target. had to get it sighted once. Of course there’s some scratches on it. I shoot my Guns. I try to go at least 2 times a month and while I don’t throw my tools around and am not wreckless with them there’s a couple worn places. What’s with Not a scratch. It’s not like a damn Autoshow. These are tools. That’s like if I was to say Yea, had this Garden Hoe 20 yrs. not a scratch on it!

  3. I love Mr Clean. The HK91 is one of my all time favorite battle rifles. You just can’t go wrong with 7.62 Nato. I love Fal’s too, but it’s just not the same as a German Made HK. Great little post. I have some cool reviews and photos on my site as well. It’s pretty new, but give it a look if you have a chance. http://www.gunmodreview.com

  4. Thanks so much for the great post. I’ve been searching for blogs like this now for 30 minutes and i finall found one

    is off topic, but I thought I’d ask. Thanks…oh also, I have some video game writings if you want to check them
    out. Here are a few of them
