    Polymer Frame Guns

    I am new to USA Carry and from reading some of the post I have seen some negative comments about polymer fram teguns.I am a begginer shooter who have been shooting for about a year now. I have my CCW Permit and I have three polymer frame guns. I have a Glock 27, a Ruger SR9C and a Ruger LCP. What is the basic drawback, if any to polymer frame guns. I would appreciate any comments. Thanks

    Welcome to the forum..
    I can tell you some of the pluses..
    Lighter gun to carry all day
    Less rust from body sweat and humidity
    Poly frame guns have been around long enough now to prove themselves.. Just like any other component, some manufacture good parts and some bad, but I've heard very little bad about poly frames. IMHO

    Polymer guns have been around for a long time now. If they didn't work well, that wouldn't be the case. How many LEA's use polymer framed guns? They wouldn't do it if there were reliability issues.
    Cheers!

    The Police Department that I retired from along with the Department's that both my son and daughter are in at present have Polymer weapons as their issued weapons. They have issued Glock's with Polymer frames for over 20 years without a problem and this is a 330 person department.

    I still have 3 weapons with Poly Frames.

    The REAL downside that I have seen.... is the folks that think that ONLY steel frame guns are real guns... to THEM Polymer = tupperware and should be confined to the kitchen...

    I have and love both ! XDm-40 ROCKS !!!

    I have carried a Glock 19 since 1988 then a Glock 26 everyday since 2001. Polymers are the best (lightest, least rusting and most dependable) for daily carry. I have nothing against metal handguns (I prefer stainless steel), I just like "tupperware" guns better.

    You forgot one.

    The poly framed guns warm up A LOT faster when up against your skin than the all steel guns do!

    I have 2 poly frame guns, carry both of 'em... M&P45 and 40c... The 40c is on me most of the time from spring to fall. When it gets cold I carry the full size 45...

    Have had no issues with either... Took the M&P40c to Front Sight for training. 700 rounds with one cleaning at the beginning of the 4 days and no issues at all.. Some people have their opinions and love to have others take them and adopt them as their own. Do some research and educate yourself and come to your own opinion... Welcome to the forum...
    You can give peace a chance alright..

    I'll seek cover in case it goes badly..
