    I cant help but feel the same way. One of the reasons I stick with 1911's.

    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.

    All my weapons are made of metal but the few polymer weapons I fired, felt good and shot great.

    Actually, I love my CZ P-07 Duty. But, I have to say, the sweetest gun I've ever shot was the all metal CZ-75. Amazing gun!

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

    Not to put words in Lima's mouth but it is probably weight and capacity.

    When we had kids I realized the my mobility was limited so I went with the highest capacity pistol that I could afford and conceal

    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.

    Re: Anyone else prefer metal guns over polymer?

    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 carry the origional steel frame 75 compact. Not even alloy in my holster!

    I do EDC my Walther PPS. Steel frames grip well, absorb recoil well, but polymer feels better in the recent sub zero temps.

    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.
