I like metal, because when the ammo runs out its still a good hammer/club/paper weight/door stopper. The list keeps going! YAY metal!

I'm not a big fan of the M9 ("M" stands for monstrously oversized, I believe) pistols either.

I'll ammend it to similar but significantly better guns. I'll take a steel CZ 75b or SP-01 over the polymer CZ SP-01 Phantom or P-07 Duty. But I'm pretty fine with poly or steel, so long as they're quality.

Guess its a matter of maintenance. Metal guns are "pretty" but have to make sure they stay that way. I prefer poly for function and less worrying about metal finish and there's something about flat black that is sexy!

Just thought I would mention, the 90-two is a great gun as good if not better than any mentioned previously. I'm sure the 92 and 96 are as well.
