I'm always amazed at the comments about "pot metal", plastic, etc. If a person uses those to "rule out" firearms . . . then he is pretty much limiting himself to "vintage" guns.
This is simply not true. While polymers have their place, and I dont have a problem with that, there are many, many new guns still available that are traditional wood, and metal. They are not the cheapest guns in a manufacturers catalog, but saying that that level of manufacturing is gone, is simply not correct.
