But if I had to hit the road tomorrow and remain mobile...I'd take my polymer XDm. High capacity, lighter weight, ultra reliable, never at the mercy of the elements; and honestly...tupperware just ain't pretty enough to care whether you smash and scratch the hell outta it!

I prefer steel (and alloy Sigs, for that matter), but I certainly do value polymer. There's a level of practicality that just can't be denied, IMO. And I'm certainly one who identifies with those who dramatically lean toward steel/metal frames.

Even better. Then he could design something new and wonderful.

A cure? Yes!!

I have some red, white, and blue glasses.

They only see American made products.

Works great. But man, the day my dad borrowed my Ford truck and left me his Toyota, I had to call someone to help me find the car..

I have the XD 9, and it is a great gun. But when I get my 1911? It ain't gonna be poly. I have a great time with my XD. Uglier than an ugly fat chick at a buffet, and meaner than her too. But I simply find something nice and respectable about the classic 1911. You don't fix it if it ain't broken.

I'd like to get about half a dozen CZ 2075 RAMI's in .40 S&W, but I haven't found a dealer in SC that carries them.

I totally respect polymer too it's just steel has its advantages

Nothing can match the "feel" of an all steel 1911. With that out of the way, the practical advantage of polymer is corrosion resistance. When people see a gun, they just can't seem to help themselves; they have to leave paw prints. If left untreated, these become rust.

My nightstand gun is polymer because if I have to 2X security in the middle of the night, I don't have to wipe the gun down before getting back to bed. In addition, I'm sure I'm not the only one to sweat lowering the hammer on a 1911 when half awake. I keep a whole lotta flesh between hammer & pin.

On thread: I own a CZ 50 - 1950s design and the legendary 75 which was probably the best combat double action pistol [B]in its day.[B] Col. Cooper even acknowledged it was a proven platform & worthy of note. My primary complaint w be it had more muzzle flip than an all steel, full size pistol should have in 9 mm IMO.

CZ has a long and storied history but doesn't get the respect it deserves in American mkts for some reason or another.

One reason CZ's don't have a big inroad into the American gun market is lack of availability. I have a long list of CZ's I'd like to buy, but can't find a dealer who sells them.

I'd spend a lot of money on a full auto scorpion.
