That sounds like a good reason to have a big ole 1911 with a great trigger for range fun, and a light polymer gun with ugh trigger for close range self defense. Although i am eagerly awaiting a range trip with my new PPQ M2 to see if reports are true and Walther nailed the trigger on that one.

As much as I regret selling that gun I probably won't own another unless I get it for a deal I can't refuse. I also worried about parts for a gun so rare. These poly 1911s aren't so popular on this forum.

Same gritty feel to my G30 until I polished up the metal-to-metal contact points. Just finished that last night. The pull has no more gritty feel & all it cost me was a little time. I started to detail strip my M&P once and there is just way too many parts for this old man to keep track of. More parts = more parts to wear down or even fail. My ugly old Glocks will have similar issues, but with less parts & I am comfortable detail stripping them (now that I have done it a couple times).
There are only 5 extra parts in an M&P over a Glock. ...and 4 of those are not moving parts.

Each to his own, that's why there are so many out there.

I really like my Walther PPQ Navy, might be the "tactical navy" (has the threaded barrel) The PPQ easily has the best trigger of any out of the box polymer handgun I've tried.
The S&W M&P's are very good handguns as well.

I'm still partial to my HK USP series such as the Expert, Elite and Match models, not the standard models.

How about adding the Five-seveN to the list? It's very accurate even at long distances. It has about a third the recoil of a standard 9mm. It has a standard 20 Rd capacity with the option for a 30 Rd magazine. It's a light weapon, fully loaded with 20 rds of SS198 it is lighter than my full size 1911 empty.

It's a bit pricey but so are BMW's and Mercedes.

Now I love me some glock and love me some 1911 (realize they aren't polymer) but I'm looking for something different. So I'm curious as to your favorite polymer pistol and why it's your favorite. I'm hoping to find something to add to my "buy list" I don't just want the name of a manufacturer but a specific model that you like. Criteria; I don't want another glock I want it to be polymer Need it to be extremely reliable Common caliber (9mm, .357, .40, 10mm, .44, .45, etc.) That's it No real price limit but nothing ridiculous unless you can knock my socks off.. GO!
I'm sure its been said but the H&K USP... I'm a glock guy too and H&K is at the top of my list right next to a Colt Delta Elite and a Desert Eagle .357 and a S&W 628 and a.... Well you get the idea

You know someone out there makes a polymer framed 1911 right? Just in case you were not aware.
