i am not a polymer frame fan, actually i have traded all of the polymer frame guns i own for metal frames at one time or another. i am now thinking about buying another to carry. i like big heavy guns, with hammers and manual safetys.my favorite being the beretta 92 and ruger p90 other than a 1911 style. i like the recoil and balance of these pistols, and the way they fit me. i also like to take the fist shot single action. just wanted to know what everyone preferred and why. also which ones were your favs so i can get some ideas for my next semi-auto. i know we all like 1911's so lets save them for another thread.
