If you could own/operate you own rifle manufacturing company, what would you name it?

Talk about a cool job huh?... Ill kick off the thread. Though I change my mind a lot, this week I like: "1st Regiment Arms"

"Short Arms"

"Keepenbair Arms"

"Straight Shooters"

"One-Hole Wonders" (this would also be a a good name for a porta-potty company.)

Probably use my last name or perhaps take a name from something in the area.

Use of some tacticool term or slapping the name of a military division on a civilian gun company seems pretty lame to me.

That's a good one. But already taken.

I think that one of the notions common to the anti-gunner is the idea that being a victim is 'noble'; as if it is better to be noble in your suffering than disruptive in your own defense.

I've always had a penchant for R.O.A.T.S. - Reach Out and Touch Something, but I think that's more appropriate for a particular firearm model than a company. I'd have to go with "Revolution Gun Works".
