Polymer vs. metal
 
A man walks into a room and places two guns in front of you. A polymer and a full metal gun. Both are functionally the same. You can only have one. Which one do you pick and why?

JonM 03-26-2012 03:04 AM

depends on what the gun is.

ill take a polymer xdm over an all metal glock any day of the year

Not enough info to make a decision. I'd rather have a metal 1911 than a polymer hi-point but I'd rather have a polymer Heckler & Koch than a metal llama.

Where do you pick up a metal framed Glock at?

Metal. Lighter isn't always better.

Beretta 92fs vs. 90 two. Same make and everything. Pick.

no where just echoing your post above :)

the material is typically irrelevant. a bad gun is a bad gun.

there just as many crappy all metal guns as there are crappy poly guns

+1 same hear

I personally like metal guns because they're typically easier to modify.

I'd flip a coin. Wouldn't care one way or the other.
