Another pet peeve of mine with the new plastic pistols, is the lack of a manual safety on many models. I wouldn't but many that are carrying the new plastic fantastics concealed have a live round in the chamber and the only thing preventing an accidental discharge is the hinged trigger.
Being 61 years old with my cancer in remission I shouldn't be concerned about the longevity but I'm curious if the new so-called polymer will still be shootable 50 or 100 years from now. Glocks have been around close to 40 years I believe but I wonder how many years before the plastic frame deteriorates and they become unsafe to shoot. I have two rifles both over 100 years old that still shoot as well as brand new. I also have a 75 year old S&W revolver that is still totally reliable but the accuracy has declined due to a worn bore.
What do you guys think of the new guns with plastic frames? Do you think I'm being a stubborn ol'fogie stuck in the 20th Century? Haven't seen one yet but I've heard on the net there are AR-15's being built with plastic lowers. I wonder if anybody will attempt to build a 1911 with a plastic frame.

Still had I found the $50 pistol, I would have gone for it as well.
