Why buy a striker fired polymer pistol that's not a Glock? We don't know either. That's not true. We actually come up with some legitimate reasons. We also answer a bunch of your Facebook questions.

Downloading now. I hope you mention the Walther PPQ M2, which is beating the Glock and all other polymers in practically every comparison review.

Tupperware belongs in the kitchen. Real guns are made of steel and wood, not plastic... <LOL>

On, and BTW, thanks for the new episode...

I'll happily take my Tupperware Walther PPQ and Daniel Defence M4A1 to combat before anything made from former generations out of wood, good sir.

I don't hate all guns with wood any more than I don't hate classic cars, but comparing a 1955 Corvette to a 2015 Corvette performance-wise is comical.

When those plastic guns are around as long as the 1911, I'll concede. Muahahahahaha...

Just because it's newer, doesn't mean it's better either - it's just different.

You are correct; newer doesn't mean better, better means better.

If the FN or SKS or M14 were better for the average soldier, I'm pretty sure the Army would be using them today.

But they don't, they use the AR.

Ditto for all police forces that are allowed to choose their own handgun; only a small fraction choose a 1911 style.

If a weapon platform has a role then it is "better". Didn't JTFA II use some C1's in Afghanistan? Anyway, 2 internet demerit points for you Petamocto for disparaging the FN! :)

As per above, I'm not anti anything classic, but I know the difference between appreciating something for its historic value, and actually thinking that it's better than something today.

(And Slam Fire guys, I must say that I am very disappointed that you have abandoned me to hold the fort on this subject without your support! There are people saying classics are better than moderns, help me out!!!).

On that note, back on topic, I really want that impressed with the response to your polymer question on the episode. I don't mind someone with a different opinion than mine, but you practically stated that you like a Glock and M&P as the best in the category, but then said you haven't held a Walther or H&K. That's crazy. I know you're providing a free service and I appreciate your entertaining me, but surely you have now made enough contacts to put a proper comparison review to put this to bed. I'd even loan you my Walther PPQ M2 Navy to take the Pepsi challenge against all the other polymer 9mms you can compile.

Set the stage, something like you will do a comparison review from 1-10 July, and see who provides you with what.

Well, at the range tonight, we had a shooter going through the course, and his pistol blew up - blew the mag out the bottom, broke the extractor and mag release, and shot the slide lock out the side. Glock 17, 9mm. The round fired before it was in battery, and blew the bottom part of the round, and broke the trigger group as well. We had a hell of a time getting the hammer down so we could remove the slide and remove the brass. we managed to knock part of the brass out of the chamber, but some was stuck in. I took pics, for our own club incident report, and could post them if you want. That make 3 in the last 7 years of Glock Kb's that have happened at the range. Never have I seen a problem with any other "classic" (read iron and wood) pistol.

Lots of contacts but not enough local contacts. The only times people have lent us guns for T&E they've come from out of province. I can only buy so many plastic guns before my wife leaves me again! lol
