I guess I am a reverse snob regarding to guns. I do not find engraved/gold inlaid, custom made by Thor’s jeweler gun attractive but I think they are downright ugly. And I cannot wrap my head around the concept of spending $820,000 on a rifle that will not see the open air or even send a round downrange but maybe once in a while.
If you like that stuff and have the money for it, great! But I see more beauty in the simplicity of a Glock (and I don’t even own one) and its affordability. For what that rifle is worth, I could outfit some 1,600 people with new Glock 19s.
Having 1,600 new fellow shooters is beauty in itself.
