Oddly, I find that an attribute (having no soul) for a defensive weapon.
No soul = no type of attachment to the tool, other than to appreciate it's ability to perform.
This is my belief. I have no real emotional attachment to my Glock. I bought it simply because, in my eyes, it was the best tool for the job. Really, most any "tupperware" gun would be. I love 1911's. I think they are a work of art. But I wouldn't want to carry one regularly, for a variety of reasons.

It's the same reason I carry my $80 Benchmade Griptilian instead of one of my custom knives. I like knives but if I lose or break my Benchmade, I have no emotional attachment. I'll just get another one. But I'd cry if I lost/broke one of my others.
