If it's going to primarily be a carry gun, there's nothing wrong with the alloy/lightweight frames. If you're Todd Jarret and shoot a million rounds a year then I would say steel only.
I shoot mine quite often and I have never had any issues. I doubt the average shooter would ever have any issues with an alloy frame. I wouldnt be afraid to run high volumes thru mine.
I own a bunch of scary guns. You want em? Come and take em.....
