I own several metal framed semi-autos (Ruger and Sig). With all due respect to Walther, Glock and all plastic framed owners, what do you suppose the effects would have been with an all metal gun?
If you took the grips off of your metal frame pistol you would realize how little protection there really is. The plastic used in polymer frames is really strong and doesn't tend to splinter like wood. 1911's in 45 auto aren't to spectacular, but a 1911 38 super going boom is another story.
