Economically speaking madness
Economics has nothing to do with hobbies and this is sure true for guns.
I have a S&W Model 28 made into a 44 Special with a Douglas barrel of 3 inches and several other mods.
The gun cost me (in the 80’s) 300$ the entire work by a very good gunsmith was another 400$
700$ In 80’s money is something like $100,000,000 in today’s money.
If it make you happy and shoots well (I hope so) who cares about the price.
Nice gun you have.
“Peace is that brief glorious moment in history when everybody stands around reloading.” – Thomas Jefferson.
If you carry a gun, people call you paranoid, NONSENSE! If you have a gun, what do you have to be paranoid about?
Guns have only two enemies: Rust and Politicians.
