I have decided to go through and clean my collection, some that have not been fired in probably 9 or 10 years.
I disassembled and cleaned my Browning Hi-Power and my new M&P 40 back to back. I was struck by the quality feel of the Hi-Power compared to the polymer framed M&P. The Hi-Power feels so smooth and like something that will last forever where the polymer gun (Glocks included) feel like disposable toys in comparison.
Make no mistake, I like my polymer guns, and have no doubt that they are at least as accurate and reliable as Hi-Power or a good 1911 (which is a similar design for those who are new to hand guns), but the contrast in feel when you take them down and manipulate them is striking.
I also know that they are antiquated and blah blah blah, but it is hard to fault the looks and function of a high quality revolver.
I encourage anyone to get their hands on a good steel gun, 1911 or wheel gun, if you have the chance. They feel so solid.
