    All Steel Stiker Fired

    I've been reading up on the VP9 and the 320. Both sound like decent guns. Problem is, I don't have to hump the extra weight in the boonies and both are larger than I would want to carry all day.

    I think it would be fun to have a full size, striker fired gun with a steel frame. The gun would need at least a 4.5" barrel and a generous beavertail would be a plus. Plenty of aftermarket goodies also important.

    We have lots of striker fired polymer guns.
    Lots of hammer fired guns in both polymer and various kinds of metal frames.

    I'd love to be able to buy a metal frame M&P 9.

    I know I can get aftermarket stuff for a Glock. Too hard and too pricy. Besides, now that I've drank the CZ Koolaid, I'm not a huge Glock fan anymore.

    I agree the P320 is a large gun to carry, but the P320c is quite a nice size. I carry the VP9 all day, and it is no different than carrying a Glock 19, which I replaced with the VP9.

    Robar and CCF Race Frames make metal frames for Glocks' if you so desire.

    There is a larger Kahr that is all metal. It is striker fired. I forget the model name. Check out their website

    All striker-fired handguns are abominations.

    Very nice looking gun. I'd prefer it in double stack. I live in a state that hasn't completely tossed the constitution.

    I wonder if the trigger is like my PM9. I much prefer the reset on the Glocks, M&Ps, XDs, ... that I've shot.

    If you've had the CZ kool-aid, why would you want to go back?

    Curiosity. I know I don't want another Glock. I like all steel guns.
