I have a Taurus 650 CIA .357
(but I load .38 SPL) for concealed carry. Very small, hammerless, and if I can't end it with 5, then I deserve to be shot.
People were saying the same "Plastic = TOY!
" about the M-16
when it came out, and look where we are now with the AR platform. Innovation always
takes time to work out the bugs (there are always
bugs), and there will always
be people resistant to change.
If you don't like it, fine. But don't put it down
as some "toy", as it clearly is not. If it were, the bugs would have become apparent a decade ago, and no one else
would have joined up with their own versions.1911 = "Your great-grandpa's gun!" Get with the times!!!
(That was sarcasm, for those that missed it.)
