Oly poly's get traded?? Buy a good poly gun. Sounds like a personal problem. HAHA ITs way more CC'n a practical and functional handgun for most of us. Can't say poly is bad with the abuse thats been handed to them for what 25 years now. With a glock 17 1st gen over 300,000 rounds with one barrel change not many all metal will better that. But reguardless of peoples view its your money and really nneed to give input for you to use. Its just to easy for me to carry and handgun for many years and plastic is part of that. Just don't buy cause something is cool , or prudy. After all It is just a tool.

Guns are a lot more than just tools to me. They are also forms of art, visual and mechanical. They are examples of fine craftsmanship and relics of an era long gone. But I could see with the introduction of polymers and some of the new production guns how someone could think a gun is just a tool. I just hate to see a classic abused.

Come to think of it, every polymer frame gun I've ever owned as been sold or traded for something else. It's not that I dislike polymer guns. I just find that I like a lot of other guns better!

Go shoot a 938, if you're close I'd let you shoot mine. Not sure where you're from?

That was kind of a strange reply. I have a friend that can't understand why I like firearms. I have tried to explain it like you have as being more than just a tool and it's true, some are a form of a craftsmanship art. Art formed out of raw steel and machined by hand. To me poly pistols have about the same warmth as a front wheel drive car that will never be a classic, excluding Cord automobiles of course. I own an XDm 40 but would rather it was a Springfield EMP 40 or TRP 45. I like the Kahr MK40, if I wasn't in the middle of a lot of building projects I'd talk my wife into getting one for CCW as they are far more concealable than my present full size frame firearm.
