    I want to preface this by saying, all my semi handguns are plastic, I shoot glocks and m&p’s and every plastic gun I have ever shot did so just fine HOWEVER, if there was an all steel gun out there that could provide me with all of the same amenities that my glocks/ m&p’s do, I would carry that. I prefer the overall feel of steel guns as well as the weight. I dont care about pistol weight honestly.

    I would like to know what everyone else thinks though.

    Hooray, another 1911 vs Glock thread. Hadn't had one of those in a couple of hours.

    Polymer is the future of everything.

    Look around and you will see it.

    That seems only in as much as you appear to be trying to turn it into a 1911 vs. Glock thread.

    I like the feel and weight on my 1911, for target and ranch carry.

    I like the lighter weight of polymer for EDC. Light weight, high capacity.

    I like them. I like steel guns too. Can't we all just get along? :)

    I don't mind polymer guns and own several. I like the ability to have interchangeable backstraps. Being able to easily DIY grip reductions and changes is pretty cool. The weight savings are nice for carry.

    I still like shooting my all metal framed guns better and feel I shoot them a bit better as well.

    I currently do not own a plastic gun but have had several Glocks in the past. I've no issues with plastic guns. I just prefer the steel guns at the moment.
