TTAG reviewer Joe Grine recently asserted that it’s better to buy a Porsche than spend similar money to turn a rice burner into a Porsche-killer. “Where’s the fun in that?” a reader responded. They’re both right, of course. Thank God we live in a free market economy where consumers are free to spend their post-tax cash however they please (healthcare aside); whether that’s shelling out $350,000 for a set of four hand-crafted shotguns or ponying-up $315 for a Hi-Point .380-caliber carbine.
As for GQ commissioning rapper 2 Chainz (born Tauheed Epps) to determine whether or not high-end shotguns are “worth” big bucks, that’s like TTAG asking Dyspeptic Gunsmith to critique Chief Keef’s Faneto. I rate that interesting, but irrelevant. Something’s worth exactly what someone’s willing to pay for it. No more. No less. Cabot Guns included.
