Mostly due to the fact that people tend to condemn that which they do not understand. Some people are too set in their ways to try a new product.
I absolutely cherish my polymer-framed guns. That's why I own so many. Sure, I have metal framed semi autos as well, and I like them just the same, but polymer guns are so carry friendly, one would be a fool to carry a metal framed semi rather than poly.
Most people also try to claim poly frames flex and absorb the harmonic vibrations of the gun, therefore negatively affecvting accuracy. I dont agree with that at all.
Whotoblame, thanks for your td, as for your answer.......
Thats just my opinion, Im sure there are those who are PHD educated in handguns who will disagree and give me thumbsdown!
