    Crackup Pet Names...?

    This may sound silly, but any of you guys give you units...pet names? I use names like Thunderball, Urban OP 1~4, DarkOP, Black Recon,Klingon & Heater. Or am I spending to much time alone?

    I don't want to put you down, but if you call some of your flashlights by women's names... you might need a girlfriend even more than I do...

    I only named two, if you can call it that: General Malkoff (neutral MC-E drop in with 400 lumen on my P60) and Mr.TK40. I think they deserve a name only because of sheer output, but a beefy name at that...

    Otherwise I have considered naming them things that sounds more like jetfighter names, but haven't felt the urge to think it through so far.

    Perhaps. If they talk back definitely!


    I only have one flashlight on a 1st name basis, an E2D, "Xenon Warrior Princess."

    I have only two lights with names. And Milky was the one who named them, not me.

    I cal my MTE M3-2 "The Beast". Is it because of the 700 lumens (yeah, right) of sheer savagery? Is it because the tactical crown could punch through a rhino's hide?

    No. Its just a fugly torch.

    You guys spend too much time with your flashlights to give them names

    They come with names, no more naming is needed.

    Okay I wouldn't look down on it too much if someone had a pet name for their RRT-3, SR90, Catapult, etc.

    I read a thread recently one member referred to his SR90 as BAFF. I guess you can figure that one out Big A F Flashlight. Seems very fitting to me

    Oh crap ! !

    Well, I'll never meet you guys anyway, eh? Yes, I have named one.

    I inspect the foundations of manufactured homes. So, often I look into a crawl space with ambient daylight behind me. Before CPF, I used a 3D Mag. Now I see the light (pun intended). I use a cheap 190 lumen thrower named . . . . drum roll please . . . . . Pierce. (Get it ?)

    Oh well, you don't know who I am.

    When I clicked on this thread I thought it was going to be about publicly exposing the names of our pets. You know, like dogs and cats.

    Turns out to be a whole lot wierder than that.......

    Not silly at all! I haven't named all my lights yet, but the two main NiteCores I carry are Christine (D10 R2) and Mac (EX10), as in NiteCore = Night Court.

    The way I see it, naming your lights is just like naming other possessions you value, such as cars, boats, guns, knives, etc. As for the time aspect, I'm a blissfully married father of 3, and my two sons, both under 3, always call our minivans by their names (Bonnie and Coach).

    Pet names for your flashlights? SCARY!.......

    But on the plus side, I can show this thread to my wife so she can see that I am not as far over the edge as she thought I was........

    LOL, you have only yourself to blame. After all, I did warn you Mrs.Zeruel probably would not like being referred to as an "EDC" and "the enemy".
