I understand too. Trust me I'm still a gun nut but, have become a bit more practical in my age. Sometimes I laugh at myself. This is coming from a guy who back in the day bought a brand new Springfield Armory Gov't model for $400. Then w/o shooting it, walked nextdoor to the gunsmith and dumped $1,200 into it! Bar-Sto barrel, Wolf springs, Wilson safety, McCormick trigger, etc.. I also went through a phase where if it wasn't a Sig, Walther or an HK with all the bells and whistles I wasn't having it. The Glock makes me focus on the real reasons why I carry a gun everyday.
