    Didja know the origin of the word "gun" is obscure, but probably goes back to the old Norse Gunnr (battle), one of the Valkyries, the warrior maids who collected the souls of the fallen and took them to Valhalla. Why it's been customary to give guns feminine names like Brown Bess and Big Bertha.
