I got into an interesting conversation with a fellow shooter about the service life of different type of handguns (pistols & revolvers). It started over the polymer 380's and ran over into steel vs polymer, stainless vs carbon steel and so on. Main difference of opinion was over the poly/steel LCP, Diamondback and Keltec 380 pistols. I felt they would last at least 2 to 3 thousand rounds with no problems, he felt they are going downhill after a mere 1 thousand. Also chime in on other caliber/platform configurations.
