It sometimes feels like my old guns have a spirit to them.

It sometimes feels like my old guns have a spirit to them. I fricking swear, some of my milsurp rifles straight up have temperaments.

    >Be me, years ago, visiting a gun show with buddies, finally old enough to buy a rifle but I don't have much $$$
    >Find sporterized Enfield and negotiate a deal. It wasn't in perfect shape but it was solid. Came with a sling and and old Bushnell scope too, clearly some boomer's old durr gun
    >Fricking sweet, my first rifle. I take it home, take it apart, clean every last bit. Under the wood I find a name, Chester we'll say, and what looks like a drivers license number scratched onto the barrel
    >It was a meh shooter, not terrible but not very good either. Before too long I got other and better rifles.
    >Fast forward many years. I get invited to a family friend's rural place for a BBQ. They know I'm into guns and tell me they are seeing hogs on the property now so won't I bring a gun.
    >I grab the Enfield, figuring it's a lot less scary to a bunch of normies compared to some tacticool rig
    >Havin a good time, eating BBQ and drinking beer. Suddenly I get the heads up: hogs have been sighted. I go grab the Enfield.
    >Hogs are about a hundred yards out. I pick the biggest one and aim. As I'm doing this the beer has kicked in and I say something like "this one's for you Chester"
    >I nail the hog dead perfect in the base of the skull, it drops without taking a step
    >MFW everyone thinks I'm some sort of super sniper now.
    from then on that rifle has been eerily accurate

      Come on though, young eager you took it apart, cleaned it, gave it love, and it told you its name.
      You gotta call it by it's name. That's basic. Like when you're waiting for someone so you make a coffee and they'll show up before you get to drink it.

      Sporterized Enfield, you say? Is it a Santa Fe Mountaineer? I have one, snagged it for $200. Love it even though it's a piece of shit

      It's not cursed, it's sad. It was meant to defend people.

      HEAL THE GLOCK. GOD DAMN IT. DO NONE OF YOU CARE?

      It's not cursed, it's sad. It was meant to defend people.

      CORRECT.

      I assume you all have your first aid certs. Be the first responders you're supposed to be, you see a little guy in trouble you help them out.

    My Steyr 95 has a lot of medicine to it. Can't explain it. It just has a protective vibe to it and I know I can trust it for anything.

    I don't believe in that shit but I do know my M1903, which saw two world wars with father and then son, manages groupings on novelty Wehrmacht silhouettes that are unequivocally and empirically better that usual, across multiple users without exception. I won't say that the rifle has devoured so many souls that it can recognise its traditional German prey and hungers for them once more, but everyone who uses it on a German-shaped targets suddenly becomes a much better shot.

      Why do you refuse to believe when you hold the truth in your hands?

      I ought to try that with my M1. It's a Springfield made in 1943 that I got from the CMP, so I have no idea about its history. If that doesn't work I ought to try Japanese and Chinese silhouettes next.

      >your all just crazy
      Sorry to frighten you anon, but the supernatural is real. You can bury your head in the sand and pretend it doesn't exist, but it'll still be waiting to meet you when you die. Of course, you won't believe me either. Much easier to just deny reality.

    Sort of related, I work in network infrastructure and it's well known that some server racks have poor temperament. Some of them demand constant attention even though they should have absolutely nothing wrong. Their peers don't have the same issues. Most places give them names and some of them have little rituals to keep certain racks happy.

        It's a lot less grimdark and a lot more quirky. Like cute post-it notes and favorite snacks and other gay shit like that.
