This. So much this.
Yeah. Can’t touch this.
We have a winner!
If you don’t have it, it’s useless.
Snake? Please tell me it’s a Mk23 or an Operator.
For my EDC, an STI Duty One 4″, the one word I would use is “tool”.
For my favorite gun, a custom made .50cal flintlock rifle, I’d say “legendary”. JWT
That’s exactly what I would say for mine, and to me it’s the most impotant
Damn that picture reminded me of my seller’s remorse. Should have never gotten rid of that MP45 even if I wanted to purchase one I can’t because it is no longer on California’s “Safe Gun List”.
Buy used PPT, or consignment.
Search or post interest on CalGuns.
There are ways to acquire off roster.
I have made several acquisitions of low and no mileage off roster handguns through local FFL’s over the years and have not been disappointed yet. One was a Sig 220 Super Match that appeared un-used.
Having a keen eye, and disassembling to thoroughly examine the prospective piece for wear, usage marks or abuse, or alternatively lack of, is key.
Big. Long fingers make the tiny pocket pistols not as much fun to shoot. I still suck with the two finger grip single stacks.
One word and a number – .357 magnum.
That’s what I was going to say.
Stylish / Functional / Tried / Tested
Glad to see I’m not the only one who names my guns. My carry gun is Molly.
How about Polly as in polymer?
My Kahr PM9 is Tiffany blue. 🙂
CZ 2075= All around awesome
Mine is called Micro RAMIus. I don’t carry it often though.
It’s a .38 snubbie. Don’t get much more old school than that
+1 I was going to say the same word about mine, so now I will use this one: Comfortable.
That works, too. In a pocket holster I’ll often forget that I have it.
It’s a protector of life.
It’s a taker of life.
It’s a lifestyle.
It’s a life-changing decision to carry or use.
It alters, affects, impacts and provides a wholly different view of your, and your loved-ones lives.
I would even say it’s a display of the love of life (as contradictory as that may sound to antis).
hahaha….. That’s what I call my G20 (10mm w/ 460 Rowland conversion).
“Myeuh-muh? What’s Myeuh-muh?”
Sweet (for smooth, lighter feeling than actual trigger pull rated lbs)
I call her Tess for short.
Always need more…
MORE DAKKA FOR DA BAD HUMIES!
jennings or lorcin?
Infidel. Just like me…
Buddy. Stupid question, though. No matter what you call it, it wont come.
lol what a stupid question
Because it is my very most favorite gun I call it… Vera.
Better than Elenor.
It was a Firefly reference.
As much as I hate to admit it I call my carry gun my personal “blaster.” I also have my favorite AR and AK that I call respectively “Shootie & Blastie.”
Elvis…………”Thank you, thank you very much”.
3 words: “Starting To Rust”.
There is always hope.
And, of course, “never give up Hope!”
Some of these are pretty awesome….!
“Well, we’re not going to let you get away with it.”
“Me, and Charlie, and Zulu. Don’t let the name fool you, they’re both Eastern Europeans.”
Thankfully, I don’t write movie scripts for a living.
Libtards call it my smalldickcompensation
Sig. It’s nice when the brand IS a befitting name.
Fun post. I call mine Bang-Bang. That’s one word… Twice! 😎
I carry a .50 BMG with a 7 Inch barrl and a 7 Round mag with silencer. Hard to conceal but fun to pull on would be muggers.

That’ll work as a firearm or a club! 😀
Ah. As in, “THAT’s not a gun! THIS is a gun!”, right?
My “one word” was boring. But I asked my wife the qotd and she said, “Boobies.” I laughed out loud.
For some context she carries a Shield in a flashbang holster.
I’m picturing a lady asking a mugger, “You wanna see my boobies?” wait for it … BANG.
Depends who is asking. If Obama’s administration….. Lost or Stolen
If a friend ask…. Beautiful.
HK – the final word[s]?
I cannot decide, but it is one of these – freedom, survival, or nonnegotiable.
Non-existent. *sigh* Someday….
go get yourself a Kahr CW 380 in the low $300s. Cheap, reliable, tiny, and reasonably easy to shoot.
Is there anyone in your area to loan you a handgun? Are you in Ohio?
Yeah, I’m in Ohio. The plan was to get one this year with our tax refund, had my eyes on a Ruger SR9c. But that fell through. Getting one will have to wait for a while. We ended up getting a car for my wife (we only had my truck), and while it kinda runs, it needs some work before it’s road worthy. Sounds like I bought a pile, but it’s solid, rust free (amazing for Ohio), and has a newer engine in it. Add in AWD and four doors, and It was a deal too good to pass up. It’ll be nice not packing my family of four into my regular cab pickup.
My brother-in-law has a few guns, but he won’t loan me any. My wife asked him. He did offer to go with me to shop for one though.
It’s kinda weird that I have none, yet my parents, who were against firearms in a house with kids, not only have one now (an M&P9), but also have conceal carry permits, and agree that we need to get one.
If someone at TTAG will give you my email address and you want to make contact, let’s see if we can’t figure something out.
I’ve been wondering for some time if sites like GoFundMe could be used for those who cannot currently fund a primary firearm for themselves. It would be something that I believe other gun owners might be interested in helping out with. Heck, this is a needed private charity waiting to happen, IMHO.
As in, “Alright you Primitive Screwheads, listen up! You see this? This… is my boomstick!”
YES, haha. I need to get that engraved on my rifle if I ever get a sufficiently cool one.
Comfortable. It fits my hand just right.
I’m surprised no one said Happiness. Because “Happiness is a warm gun.”
Mine’s a 1911, so I of course call him “Captain America.”
An ugly little bit of cheez-whiz.
OK, you wanted one word. Very well, here ’tis:
Followed by the mental thought “I suppose it’ll have to do.”
Justin, as in just in case, certainly not Bieber!
Efficacious or Melioristic
Dependable, as in not 1 misfire or jamb since it was new in 1994.
That’s awesome. Mind my asking what particular piece of hardware has been that solid?
Solid. It is Ruger Super Redhawk.
Cocked and Locked!
