Isn't the premise of this thread assumed off the bat? Kind of like saying "its only worth what someone will pay" or "you can't pay sales tax without first buying something".
I think the definition of "perfect" plays into this as well. Some would say pure and simple a perfect handgun doesn't exist. Others would say even a perfect handgun would have faults since they all do, so a zonk model 47 is pefect, but its perfect, only to them. Theres no answer.
