Reply Exactly. The most expensive firearm I’ve held was a Cabot 1911 with meteorite grips. Six figure handgun. https://cabotguns.com/the-cosmos-meteorite-grip-1911/ Reply And I thought a 12 grand Strasser was excessive. Reply Where were you able to do this Reply Texas Gun Experience in Grapevine Texas had one earlier this year. Just happen to know the right people there. Well hells bells, I go there all the time, I was just there today and never knew this. They’re my go to FFL/gunsmith/range. I live about 5 minutes away from TGS. I participated in a skeet shoot competition a few years back. Brought a trusty 50-yr-old pump with me and was happy with how far I was able to advance. The winner overall had a really nice one, and I commented to my buddy that it was probably $10K. A range supervisor standing nearby overheard me and shook his head. “I know that guy. He routinely wins competitions, and I helped him with some of the work on that gun he’s holding. That’s actually a $40K shottie.” I had no words. Reply That’s some serious scratch to have in a shotgun. I’ve handled $250K works of art from Italy, magnificent wood and the steel artistry has to be seen to be believed. Piker. Look at the crazy prices for Edwardian-era double guns from the big boys, or current H&H bespoke shotties / doubles. Houses in a good area of town sell for less than those will cost you! (No, I don’t have one! Nor would I buy one . . . If I had that kind of scratch to spend on guns — 2 words: Ma Deuce) James, ain’t no way in hell I’m clicking on that Cabot link. Nope. Ain’t gonna do it. Absolutely not. And you can’t make me, so just forget it. Ain’t gonna happen. Not a chance… Reply Ok, I broke down and looked for you. Fascinating, gave me the shakes and a flop sweat. The last data field on their Contact Us form brought me back down to hard scrabble Earth. The Budget begins at 10 large U.S. and goes up in 5 figure increments. The wife doesn’t think my $500 budget is outlandish any more, so there’s that. 🤣 If you don’t want to click that first link, you certainly don’t want to see this………. https://cabotguns.com/oak-collection/the-big-bang-pistol-set/ That’s the pinnacle of Cabot Arms. i’m thinkin’ four and a half million is the pinnacle: https://www.thetruthaboutguns.com/cabot-guns-unveils-meteorite-pistols/ No. Just no. Reply 👍 I am a student and I do work part time on this website to meet my needs. One who is jobless or wants to earn more money for himself, (buc-49) should try this because this is really very easy and less time consuming and also advantageous without investing any amount.. https://richzone99.blogspot.com/ Reply That’s what I always said. Though the bad guy changed over the years. Now I’m divorced and retired. I don’t explain myself to anyone. Never did anyway. Maybe why I’m divorced. Reply And your guns still cost less than your ex-wife’s shoe, bag, and clothing collection. Reply Shoes, bags, ‘n’ clothin’ ain’t nuthin’ when she gits goin’ on julery. Reply Expensive and useless shiny rocks. Wait until you start buying a Perazzi, Krieghoff, or upscale Beretta, let alone Win 21s and many other vintage SxS shotguns. $3200 doesn’t get you very far. Reply $32,000 just gets you in the door for an English sxs. Reply I trust that an English SXS is different than a Chinese SKS. ☺️ I’m more of the latter type gun collector 👍 Reply My boss bought a set of Krieghoff shotguns. They were 30K 25 years ago Reply If Dacian’s Stosstruppe “liberated” such guns it is guaranteed they will fall victim to the hacksaw. Reply You will likely spend more than that if your hobby is antique cars. Reply Yeah, but at least I didn’t have to buy a new house to get room for my guns. Reply Neither did I, I just built a second level. Reply That’s literally second level gun ownership right there. Well done. I have to wind my way through all the gun safes and cabinets in my little cabin. Even two up in the loft now so watch out, I’m catching up… I’m sorry…😁 Reply My brother in law has a $3000 minimum when he buys guns, and surprisingly he is divorced. Reply Does he have any NFA items? Just curious with that minimum spend level. Reply Korth and Manurhin revolvers. $4000 an up. Reply Does it hurt less to be shot with a overly expensive firearm, than a run of the mill blue collar weapon…? Something is better than nothing, no matter the cost. Damage is usually the same. I also collect, but that don’t mean that my less expensive collectibles are less damaging. My favorites are actually the cheaper weapons. Can’t seem to hurt them & accuracy basically stays the same. There’s a reason our enemies always seem to use the kalishnicof type of firearm’s, Pretty sure I spelled ☝️Wrong. Reply Kalashnikov and yeah, there’s something to be said for a cheap yet reliable gun you don’t have to worry about. Norinco stuff is pretty good for that, plus the Tokarev and a closet full of skssss… Reply Ruger and Savage make good guns at a reasonable price. Reply Absolutely. My .45colt Redhawk is my camp/tent pistol 🌲👀🌲 and built like a tank. Owned a Mini 14 for many years now and it’s awesome; light, fast, reliable, weatherproof. Just ordered a PC Carbine for hoots. My buddy owns two Savage rifles, one in .338Laapoooaaah and a chassis style in 6.5Needmore. Both are quite accurate and didn’t break the bank. We have a few nice Enfields as well, shame they’ve doubled in price recently, great rifles. Barrett M99 50 BMG & Barrett M82A1 50 BMG, little over $12,000 together not including ammo, but it makes me happy, no regrets! Reply My gunz ain’t a hobby. Not when Darth Brandon threatens me & my loved ones… Reply Multiple guns for multiple purposes. Some are mainly for fun. Others are for self and or home defense. Others are defending against more serious threats. Even the cheap fun guns (like Marlin 60) could be used for serious purposes if needed. Reply I shoot quail with a Citorii 20 gauge. Priince of Wales grips. it’s a nice little gun. I like my 1100 Special Field better. It handles like a wand. But, it’s now verboten on most plantations. Only twice barrels. It seems a lot of shooters need to show empty chambers to the guide. I don’t disagree with that. You should be able to show compedence with what you arrive with. If not. Sit down and be quite. Most will like you better. Reply I looked at Citori and a couple other stack barrels when I last shopped for shotguns. I decided on the m2 Benelli. A little lighter and it handles better for me. Reply The last time I shopped for a shotgun, I walked out with a Maverick 88 (with the 7+1 tube). ☺️ Yeah, I’m cheap, and mainly go for inexpensive but functional guns. Reply I have one of those also. It’s my house gun. Different guns for different jobs. Ditto. Though mine now wears a Knoxx stock I picked up for a song. jwm, my buddy has a Super (Black?) Eagle. Very nice. Mines a 590A-1. And yeah, I have a shorter maverick in the house, the shop and the truck. Great little shotties. By the way I left another long opinionated and unfounded screed to your reply in the Ukraine sniper article if like me you don’t get notifications. Reply I don’t. I’ll look it up and then rage at you. 🙂 Read it. I don’t think either side is right in this fight. And I don’t think either side is a friend to us. More importantly, who do we trust to tell us the straight skinny? I don’t make decisions for my .gov or any others. But to me there was no immediate threat to Russia from the Ukraine. What this really reminds me of is when tin pot dictators have needed a distraction for their peasants so they made up an excuse to roll. Think Iraq/Kuwait. Argentina/Falklands. Just my take on it. And yes, I’m a bit biased. Duck and cover drills as a school child and soldiering during the not so cold war may have colored my perceptions. The truth is add up what you spend on anything and you’ll be floored. Especially taxes. Reply And food. Reply I paid 36,000 bucks in federal taxes on one check. Don’t get me started on taxes. Reply Only $3,200? I’ve probably spent double that just on ammunition this year. Reply And wth is golf? Reply A game for those with small balls? Reply Ha! And usually taking way too many strokes to get their tiny balls to the hole? Only in the frigid, rocky, treeless land of kilts and sporrons could this game have possibly developed. @James Campbell So basically a 1911 with grips made from rock? Not understanding why. Maybe I’m odd but I like and carry guns that can be beat on, not put in a display case. Reply Basically. But the rock predates the formation of planet earth. Different strokes. I have few safe queens in the safe. But also have carry, range, vehicle, and beater guns. Reply check the link above where the entire thing is made from rock. Reply That pair of meteorite guns are insane. Did you notice they’re left and right handed too? Reply i seem to remember mirror images, yes. weird to think of cobalt as “rock.” i’m much closer to a dendritic cobalt knife than i am to those pieces. For 4.5mil they should be multi dimensional and gravity defying, not just merely semi auto and ambi. It’s not a “hobby”, it’s a right. 🙂 Reply LOL.
