As much as I enjoy looking at $2500 guns, and despite the fact that I would almost certainly enjoy shooting them even more than I enjoy looking at them, I'm not sure I could ever bring myself to actually spend that much on a gun. Were I to hit a $2500 jackpot, I suspect that my purchases would look more like this:
1) A $1000 gun;
2) $500 in ammunition; and
3) $1000 in a reloading setup and supplies.
(Mind you, I do not have the foggiest idea on how much a reloading setup or supplies cost, so it might be $1000 of ammo, and $500 of reloading stuff.)
I know that this isn't nearly as exciting as some of the other stuff that's been posted, but I could do a lot of shooting with that. I would truly, truly hate to buy a $2500 gun and then discover that I couldn't afford to shoot it.
A gunfight is not the time to learn new skills.
If you ever have a real need for more than a couple of magazines, your problem is not a shortage of magazines. It's a shortage of people on your side of the argument. -- Art Eatman
