I will admit that I like steel handguns. My first polymer handgun was a Taurus 709 slim. Designed for concealed carry, it's greatest attribute to me was it's light weight. It was a tremendous difference between the Taurus and the 1911 officers model weight wise...
I just saw this from MKS:
Pretty cool that a .22 can can use polymer baffles. Now if they would come out with a HiPoint .22 carbine with a threaded barrel......:rolleyes:
