      What's Your Favorite Gun Composition?

      This is one of two polls. I want to know what they make the frame of your FAVORITE gun with?

      I'll ask about what you actually carry in another poll.

      I am old school and I can't help but to like steel and wood the best.

      I put Poly because I carry a Glock but I loved my Ruger Superblackhawk when I had it. Why'd I sell it? Beats me?

      I collect a lot of WW2 etc. types. I LOVE blued steel! (even though some don't have much)

      I really don't know. I have a Polymer frame, Steel slide, CCW that I carry. I have an all Metal gun that I Range shoot with, and sometimes CCW. Guess I would have to say I Like them all.

      Polymer

      I voted for polymer since my two favorite pistols are my fullsized S & W, M & P 40 caliber and my M & P 9mm compact. I like the ergonomics, the accuracy and the ease of cleaning of my MP's. That said, I recently bought a steel CZ 75b stainless that is a great shooter and that I like very much.
      As a carry gun I like the polymer, as a range gun I like steel.

      Aluminum Frame/Steel slide for me

      I use the Beretta 96 for CCW as well as at the range. I guess if it were polymer framed I'd have voted polymer. It shoots well and has never let me down.

      When I saw the title of the thread, I was ready to vote "Gimme three steps" by by Lynyrd Skynyrd. Great composition.

      I like steel and wood.

      Uh ...

      That would be an answer to this thread:

      Song Title Game

      And I think we stopped while looking for something to go with "Danger Zone."

      But maybe it could start up again with "Gimme three steps?"

      My favorite gun composition is Johnny Cash's hit "Don't Take Your Guns To Town."


      That, and the "1812 Overture."

      I'll also go with the 1812.
      But don't forget Pistol Packin' Mama! (Was it by Bob Wills and the Texas Playboys?)

      I think that Glock is missing a sales opportunity: Combat Tupperware parties.

      This is an unfair poll! I love all my pistols. My favorite fun gun/carry piece is a TZ99 9mm with an aluminum frame, stainless slide and polymer grips. Both of my other carry pieces, a Kel-Tec P-11 9mm and a Witness P Compact .45acp are polymer framed and steel slide. Then there are my revolvers, a .357 Ruger Blackhawk, blued with wood, and my .357 Ruger Security-Six, stainless with Pachmayer.

      I own a CZ P01 and a HK USP9c, the CZ feels much better in my hand but I'm more accurate with the HK, the slide on the CZ is small and sometimes difficult to rack and the slide on the HK is large and easy to operate, the CZ will eat just about any ammo and the HK seems to be very picky, I could go on and on but I guess the point is that I'm undecided.
