I seriously doubt any poly gun can hold up to nearly a century of uninterrupted service

1911a1 design.

Rugernut... Have you read nothing of the SR9's development? How about the legal issues on the LCP? Ruger has had a number of production runs that resulted in various recalls and repairs... That said, though, I still have one pistol I would defend my life with and that IS a Ruger SR9!

The 1911 is a beautiful platform but let's not forget Chuck Taylor and the Glock he ran into the ground after nearly 170k rounds?!?!? Iam not a Glock fan boy but I have handled enough of em to know they will take a licking and keep on kicking (a$$)

I have a S&W 5906 SS 9MM that served in the Wisconson Game Wardens arsenal for many years. Beat thru the woods for years, now gets shot by everyone and their brother and has never needed a thing except cleaning and lub.

Seems to eat any ammo I throw at it without a hickup and is still acurate.

I second Sweeper's first post. Glock, XD, M&P, any of the big polymer guns can definitely outlast your children's children. I've seen USP's take beatings that I would never even consider trying on some of my all metal pieces.

as much as I hate to say this Hi Point, ya some of them might have some problems but from my experience the C9 is pretty damn hard to break. I'm not saying they're the best but based on a youtube torcher test and personal torcher test it's hard to break them, ya I threw mine off a cliff about 90ft up and still worked well.

like I said they're not the best but if your broke like me you could get worse.
