I went to vote and saw that this poll was closed, and then I saw the date. Ha!
Well, since it's resurrected, I'll throw in a comment.

I don't think I give my firearms names or gender, but as someone previously mentioned, I am also a traditionalist. I refer to boats, planes, and bikes as feminine. So maybe I have?

While trying to think of any names given to a firearm, I only recall this one time. I had limp-wristed a Glock once and a searing hot .45 casing landed between my glasses and my eyelid. There were copious expletive pejoratives; there could have a been a mix of masculine and feminine references as well.

Maybe they should have nationality too.

I sometimes think of that way, when Iím counting, 2 Russians, 3 Czech, 1 Italian, 3 Brazilian. Etc.

Itís natural to anthropomorphize inanimate objects that you are fond of.

Most people do it as an expression of affection.

Itís a good thing.
