Now this is my kind of guy and he's from the Land of Enchantment. What more can you ask. BTW, Santa Fe is my most favorite city in the USA.

I believe ALL women should Conceal Carry.
No one like to talk about the old thing that works all the time but not very flashy.
My steel guns and alloy Sigs still outnumber my poly guns.
My first handguns were 1911s and SA revolvers. To this day, when I pick up a poly gun, I immediately think: Its too light, it cant be a real gun!

I don't have any polymer sigs. I do have a lot of aluminum framed sigs.

I have no desire for a SIG poly gun. If I did the only one of interest would be the 365, but I have three Glocks why would I change now?

If it makes you feel better, I only own steel SIGs (P229, P225, P220). I tried the P320 and just couldn’t get into it. And I don’t get into the small pistols like the P365.
Flip side of that coin is that I own several GLOCKs.
It kind of jars me to hear somebody say "X-Five" and show a plastic pistol.

I carry a 938 and 229 daily. The only polymer I have is a pair of SigPros. Still no striker guns, unless you count the 1969 all steel Browning Nomad I have in .22.

This. The steyr blows them all out of the water for me, My L9-A1 is my fav. Striker fired pistol I’ve ever shot
I prefer all steel (no aluminum). Shot 1911's for many years. When the P320 came out, I gave it a try and ended up shooting it in competition for several years. It is a very nice gun. Now that I age and can no longer compete effectively due to physical limitations, and also have no heirs, I have pared my "collection" down to two all steel pistols. I have the SIG P220-10mm Elite SAO, and the Ruger GP100 3.5" Wiley Clapp model in 10mm. The SIG SAO is the most accurate pistol I've ever owned, with handloads or Underwood ammo. I am finally getting the Ruger's DA pull nice and smooth with a bunch of dry firing. I shoot it with a straight pull-through, no staging. It's grouping pretty well, not one ragged hole accurate, but all close in the center ring of an IDPA target, and gets better every time I take it out. Both load the Underwood 180gr Gold Dot.
all your sig are belong to us
I guess I'm a "Sig Steel" guy. I've a couple pieces of "tupperware," sure. Even have a P320 . But I've three all-metal Sigs and, while a Ruger SR1911 in 10mm is next on the list, a P229 in 357 Sig is right behind it.
My plastic pistols are all purely functional and I like them well enough for what they are, but the handguns that really call to me are all metal.
To me it's like the difference between a wood boat and a fiberglass boat. My wife and I have owned two of the latter and we loved 'em both. But wood boats have a character that can never be matched by fiberglass, IMO.

My steel P226 X5 and steel/aluminum P238 run perfectly, so no need to post about issues with them.
Look about you.
I have only P-type Sigs, and that is not likely to change.

When a Police Dept I was working for was transitioning from wheel guns to 9mm semi's (this was 1986 or 87) I shot a P226 for the first time.
Today, I own two of them and have never looked back.
The P226 is the only pistol I own/use/carry.

Plastic is for leftovers. I sold my two Glocks and have no plastic guns.

well ok, since you put it like that!
Me, too! Only metal and hammers in my collection.
