If you went to school as a child, chances are you had some sort of nickname. If you were lucky, it was cool or funny – relating to either your name or some aspect of your personality. Some of you were likely a little less fortunate and had a nickname that was cruel – given for the sole purpose of ridicule. Anyway, it probably did not stick and you have likely gotten over it – or not. Either way, I am going to take this time to mention a few famous nicknames I have come across over the years that warrant discussion.
You are all probably familiar with the greats: "The Boss," "Ol' Blue Eyes," "The Governator," "Tricky Dick" and "Slick Willy." There are also many athletes who carry excellent nicknames as well. My favorite baseball player of all time, Ted Williams, had a number of nicknames, including "Teddy Ballgame" and the "Splendid Splinter." You could spend all day on baseball nicknames alone. Then there is "Iron" Mike Tyson, Charles "The Round Mound of Rebound" Barkley and "Magic" Johnson. Some athletes even carry firearm-related nicknames like "Pistol" Pete Maravich and Andrei "AK-47" Kirilenko – both known for their shooting abilities.
While on the subject of nicknames and firearms, how could I fail to mention the Thompson submachine gun? As you may know, the Thompson has a number of great nicknames itself, such as "Chicago Typewriter," "Trench Broom" and, of course, the "Tommy Gun." Speaking of the Thompson, Keepshooting.com offers a selection of spare parts for the firearm, including the newly-manufactured Thompson buttstock slide. The Thompson buttstock slide is a piece found on the buttstock that provides for quick attachment/detachment of the buttstock from the receiver. Manufactured to the original specifications, the buttstock slide is an excellent spare part to keep on hand as it is prone to wear.
Often, it can be hard to find reliable replacement parts for the Thompson submachine gun. Consider your search over. The Thompson buttstock slide is available for $39.95.
