So far in my short stinted gun "career" (less than a year) I have become a firm believer of the saying "you only live once". If there is enough money in my savings account and there is a weapon I want badly, price is nothing but a number because I'm buying that gun reguardless.
I recently set a price of $400 for my first carry gun and ended up spending $680. Like I said you only live once.
Others were correct, this is not the place to come if you wan to be talked off the ledge so to speak. I'm afraid I have not helped you in that sense either. Sorry
