We're OK. I try to be honest in my observations on life and firearms. There is no such thing as a "perfect" anything. You balance the good, the bad and the price. XYZ gun has almost zero faults, shoots one hole groups at 300+ yards but costs $27,000. If you have that kind of money and want to shoot one hole groups at 300 yards, more power to you. If you need a serious fighting rifle to make good hits out to 2-300 yards but only have $1000 to spend, I would prescribe an AR platform rifle. If you need to make decent hits out to 1-200 yardsbut have a more limited budget a Mini may be your best option.
Some folks are itinerate tinkerers. They want to make a Mini into a sub moa paperpuncher. That is how products are improved. Major manufacturers learn from tinkerers. Sometimes tinkerers come up with something that the manufacturer will pay good money for the rights to use.
How did the Colt 1911 become the gun it is today? Tinkerers played with the platform and learned how to make it more accurate, reliable, hold more ammo, etc.
I would never bemoan a person's desires. I just think they need a dose of reality sometimes. If you want to make your Hi-Point .40 into an IPSC ready competition gun, you need a really big dose of reality.
In life, strive to take the high road....It offers a better field of fire.
