Doing My Part to Save The Planet.

I am happy to announce that I am finally plastic free. I just sold my last polymer frame pistol to my brother-in-law a couple months ago which ends my two year eperiment into polymer pistols.
Three years ago you couldn't even give me a polymer pistol. But I fell off the wagon and started experimenting to find out what all the fuss was about. I acquired a Smith and Wesson M&P Pro Series, a 9C, a Shield 9mm and a BodyGuard; a Glock 19 and a Glock 43.
It really had nothing to do with saving the planet but with all the talk from the PC crowd about plastic straws and other products made from petroleum it's good to know that no whales will be choking on the frames and they won't be cluttering the beaches of Indonesia.
All of my pistols are now made of natural materials; dug up out of the ground, smelted, machined and assembled in America.
I hope you can all forgive me for the grotesque pictures of the environmental offenders that I may have posted in the past couple of years.

Plastic guns have no soul.

Not exactly, but you're close. I traded my third Solo for the M&P9 Pro Series. That's what started it. The Solo made me do it.
