Default Naming your rifles

I only name my premium rifles (not handgun or entry level rifles)

My Sig 516 FDE is "Trauerklinge" (German for Mournblade from Elric of Melnibone Fantasy Saga)
And my LWRC 14.7 inch pinned ceracote is "Stormbringer" (from same)
And my LWRC 16.1 inch is "Deathdealer" (from another fantasy reference)

Hehe, a buddy who served in Afganistan had "Strombringer" written on the side of his 240 Bravo.
(off topic- the Elric sagas would make awesome movies)

I call my DR200 "Blackwand"

Another friend has a 7mm Mag Sendero that we refer to as "Gotte von Donner" = God of Thunder

Jo: If you wan to to say "God of Thunder" in German the best (and more proper) way to say it, is "Donnergott".

or you can also say "Donar" which is the specific German name for Thor in the ancient religion they shared with the Scandinavians (with whom they used to be one people when in ancient times all of them where called "Germans" by their neighbors.)

I don't name any of my stuff come to think of it, I don't see anything wrong with the practice I just don't for whatever reason.
