It's a helluva thing... :

And they call me maaaaaaaaaaad! : Zig Zag Bullets. (Revolver)

pretty sure these ones are bullet regen, all my revolvers for example say Unending Firepower, but even the ones that don't actually say ammo regen as well, still have ammo regen
the wording difference my guess is due to the different kind of weapon

I can do this all day... : shotgun

Unending Firepower : revolver

Hold your ground... Forever. : combat rifle

I seen a shotgun with the Red Text.
It was :
Ride the wave dude.

I it shots blue shells that bounces of the ground like a wave
And if you shot in the air see it it flying like a wave.

pretty cool shotgun I must say.

another guess here but my rocket launcher that says monster kill, fires all 4 of its ammo at one time, but it only looks like one shot, it doesnt fire them really fast, its just one shot and all the ammo is gone, itd be interesting to see it in the hands of brick with extra ammo

I doubt that's just it. Would need someone to confirm but there are plenty of weapon with the fire damage bonus without that text, but only have a chance to deal it. Possibly a gun with this Red Bonus deals fire damage on every shot, rather than a chance to.

I think it means that when you have to fight for your life, you automatically get back up.
