Honestly, I don't like plastic guns. I only have a few plastic handguns now. I like steel. Old school I guess. But guns are supposed to be steel. I decided to carry my 1911 last week. Sure felt good having the heavy metal with me. Same with the GP100. I just like it. Part of my carry with those two are a pair of galluses though. Either that or hike your pants up through the day. The plastic 38 or 380 though? You don't even know it's there. Carry is a breeze. Think I will carry my plastic 38 this week.
