This has been the subject of debate for years now and while there are pros and cons to each, both options do offer many benefits and it all primarily comes down to overall use and carry method/frequency. I have found that many are not quite fond of polymer pistols. Some mainly state that quality is just not the same in comparison. I can understand this because I’m honestly one who felt this way for some time. That is, until I actually held and shot a few modern options on the market that made me think otherwise. In addition, the option to own a polymer handgun became more of a wise choice when it came down to daily carry. Most compact, sub-compact or pocket pistols are designed this way and with very good reason. They can be significally lighter and are now just as well designed and on par in quality when compared to the alternative. They are designed to last and withstand abuse just as well or better than their alloy or steel framed counterparts.
