being an older fellow now, i came to polymer pistols late in the game so to speak, just because of their newness. at first i was hesitant in ever wanting one, much less owning one. after a few, i am changed in my views of them. they fulfill a need and do it quite well.
i don't think they will ever fully replace steel or alloy pistols, but will co-exist right along beside them. i will probably never have the same feeling for them like my steel and allow pistols, just as i don't for my wifes Chevy Cavalier, but they are quite useful and do a great job as they were designed to do. i can't fault them for doing that.
