I really like my Glocks but a 1911 feels the most natural in my hand.
Browning/FN Hi-Power fan here. There's just that tough-to-verbalize...something. Kinda' like describing love-at-first-sight, or in this case...first-front-sight.
There are only TWO kinds of people in this world; those who describe the world as filled with two kinds of people...and those who don't.
Man this is so refreshing. I'll have to check back in here in a bit. Have to go do a few things.
All my weapons are made of metal but the few polymer weapons I fired, felt good and shot great.

I don't see plastic guns as collectibles. Sorry.

i prefer polymer for several reasons but would never knock anyone for preferring the other.
a good ol' metal gun can still be used for a good ol' pistol whipping...............a lost art in my opinion.
There is no hunting like the hunting of man, and those who have hunted armed men long enough and liked it, never care for anything else thereafter.
I have owned a polymer p250 and traded it for an all metal p229. What if I told u I like the p229 better? O have shot numerous polymer and metal guns. I prefer metal because I like the weight and it just feels sturdier. The sound of a metal slide on a metal frame sticks with u. What a beautiful sound.....

I love the feel of steel guns and how they shoot but not the extra weight when carried IWB.

I love an all metal gun, especially in revolver format. That much said, I love poly guns too. In fact I generally love firearms as a whole. It just depends on the gun and mood I suppose. I love the feel of my PPQ over my 1911, I love the feel of my 1911 over my Sig Mosquito, and I'd take my S&W .44 any day over all of them in terms of pure "feels good" tactile feedback.
