Or from a different calguns thread having this piece of metal get lodged where the sun don't shine. Sometimes it is better for things to give.

Seriously though, go bash at the 1911 forum

Yikes! I'm sure that gun absorbed a lot of force to break like that. HK builds a fine polymer weapon. I'm sure any plastic gun would have exhibited the same damage under the same circumstance.

Wait, something plastic broke? Probably some fat dude.

Damnit... I'm gonna throw my P2000 in the trash. And it'll probably break in half.

Ouch! he fell off an ATV and landed on his pistol hard enough to break it. That must have left a nasty mark.

So don't fall of my ATV if I plan on carrying my Asp behind my P2000.

Got it.

And ignore the last-century ammunition capacity and un-ergronomic safety design.

So boring and tired. Same old.

Don't need to send a "plastic" gun to a smith to feed hollow points and wad cutter reliably.

You like 1911s? Great. Shoot em and enjoy. If bashing makes you feel good go for it, but you are just demonstrating your ignorance.

On the plus side, at least it didn't break during firing and it will be cheap to replace.

Or maybe the ATV he was riding is.

Just don't ride an ATV in your house if you are using a polymer pistol for HD.

From the article:
The most important lesson here, according to the Loadout Room, is that “there’s a value in all metal guns that take a licking and keep on ticking.”

“There’s a reason the AK-47 is so prevalent in every crappy corner of the planet, it just keeps on working under the harshest of environments,” Brandon Webb writes in the post

Boy you plastic people are a touchy bunch....

I thought it was an interesting story and would never have thought it would break (I've seen torture test that plastic guns have gone thru) - -

But it sure is fun tweaking you guys.... you guys need to get more comfortable and confident in what you use.... and get a sense of humor :p

Aww, OPer you hurt some peoples feelings with that 1911 comment lol. Pretty sad, IMO.

It really is funny that people post pictures of the same brand of 1911, broken in the same spot, and that spot is not actually the firearm. :facepalm:

Some of you need to calm down, step back from the computer and think before you post. This is not a bashing thread, the OP simply said "long live 1911's." I don't see what is so bad about that, unless you are bias against 1911's which I can see some of you are. Would you be bashing CZ's if he said "long live CZ's?" I highly doubt it....

"Plastic" gun parts = the risk of premature failure.
Stainless Steel gun parts = the risk of... nothing.

Just goes to show the John Moses Browning DID make the best handgun :)

The Browning Hi-Power :D

An all steel double stack 9mm will beat your old fasioned 1911's aaaaaaaall day :43: The Hi-Power was designed to be a REPLACMENT for the 1911 if that tells you anything :p

Except maybe exploding, fracturing, splintering, etc.
But they are a thousand times better than plastic.

I don't know about best, but certainly top 5. A Belgian high power is on my wish list.

ha..haha...hahahaha....hahahahahahahahahahahaha'

Except for galling, fatigue, corrosion (yes, stainless steel definitely corrodes) and a myriad of other failure methods. I'm guessing you've never taken a materials science class...

any way you slice it every gun can and has had KB no matter what their fanbois seem to think.

Thanks, OP. Lesson learned - don't fall off ATV while carrying P2000 in Serpa.

And thanks for the pop-ups.

So. . a bent frame, that may be undetectable at first, is better then a clean break when you're an idiot and wreck your taxpayer provided ATV in the desert.

Got it, I'll chalk this up to internet provided wisdom I never knew I needed.
