I often find buying a gun to fit the ammo I have laying
around to be an excellent solution. Same with reloading
dies.

I built a few 1911s, before every manufacturer got into the racket, after that I went back to shooting S&W revolvers.

I was at a store with an indoor range one day when a guy I knew casually invited me to shoot with him. He had a fancy Kimber, something like a "gold medal trophy match", or some other expensive sounding name, and a Glock 30 subcompact .45. I shot the Kimber first, and was not at all impressed. The Glock was a surprise though, not that I'd want one.

Good job RT58
I find avoiding "pistol envy" a lot easier than
avoiding "revolver envy"    
I mean I don't have to run right and buy everyone I
shoot but I usually do end the session with the
obligatory green eyed "if ya ever want to sell that
just let me know" - just hoping they will take the
bait and be in need of cash at that particular moment
for new transmission or something.

The guys got one post & you're already trying to corrupt
him.


And...after I had thought about it for a long, long time I figured.....may as well go ahead and get started, It's gonna happen sooner or later, anyway!

I think that's the one I saw about 10 years ago.   It's a polymer gun
from what I remember.    I'm not very big on them but the
gunsmith at the LGS was telling me that it was probably just as
strong as steel.

A polymer frame is light but the balance feels weird to me.

The Glock was polymer, the Kimber was all stainless steel. It looked sort of like my Gold Cup but it's accuracy was more like mil-spec. I don't know if he had a lemon or if it was because they were the new kid on the block at the time.

I don't feel DISarmed when issued or shooting a polymer firearm, I just PREFER metal ones, and with bore diameters of 10mm or greater. In the final analysis, it's the round I care about. If quality is equal, I'd rather have a polymer pistol in 10mm or .45 ACP than a steel or alloy one in 9x19mm.
