I have found the same thing. I don't know if that puts us in the majority or minority though. Polymer handguns, especially those with the ubiquitous rail, are all the rage.
Personally, I prefer full size, or compact aluminum framed semi auto's to both steel, and polymer frames.
My regular carry is an aluminum framed S&W 3913. IMHO it is the best single stack CCW 9mm going. I have a scandium framed S&W 4040PD which is still undergoing reliability testing before I carry it. Both have all the best qualities of the steel and the polymer CCW guns. Light weight while strong, good capacity, easily concealed, accurate and reliable.
My steel framed S&W's and Colt 1911 still make every range trip. Regards 18DAI.
