The man's got a point. Can you think of another investment with a guaranteed 50% annual return?
These weapons are expensive, for sure, but another expense I don't see anyone mentioning is FEEDING the damned things. I used to know a gunsmith and Class III dealer and collector who reloaded ammo ALL YEAR for ONE afternoon of shooting when he and some friends would take them out for some full-auto fun. You can go through $10K in ammo in a few hours. At 600 rounds a minute or more--well, do the math. It sounds like a rich man's hobby to me.
Hey, I'm buying Lotto tickets. Maybe someday...
