My kid calls it a "dong dong". I have no idea where he got that from. I have a hard enough time keeping my wife's and all my girlfriend's names straight...I don't need to throw another in the mix. :mrgreen:
I just call it my XD or my 45, then again with a 9SC now it can get my wife confused when I say 'my XD'. My USP compact is better known as "my two German friends, Messrs. Heckler and Koch" or just "my two German friends". lol
When my wife asked how many guns I had, I count by, "lets see, theres 10-22, kids short muzzle loader, trapper pistole, the snubby,.....".... she blows up, not what; how many! I tryed to explain I was counting. She didn't like the answer so she says again, "HOW MANY GUNS". so I start again, "10-22, snubby, and she huffs, "how many?". I explain I'm counting. So my boys chime in, "there's Tina, Fran, Gloria, Kit, Nancy,...". at this point my wife looses it and the boys say, if you don't want to know don't ask. No I don't name my firearms, but if you really want to piss the wife off, have the kids help..
