I don't know about you, but I'm a cheap SOB. Though I have spent more than that on a firearm. And it wasn't even recently. Way back in the early '90s I bought a Dan Wesson 744 VH Hunter. Even back then I paid about $1100 for it. I stopped hunting, and shooting .44MAG so I sold it.Funny, that's about the number I've been pondering for a lightweight 22' travel trailer.
12.5 for a firearm...I am a value gun buyer. Pretty sure the most I've ever paid for a firearm is 650.00
Yeah, shotgun people are crazy. We have a big store over here called Bass Pro Shop. They have this "special" room where you need to be escorted into. I believe the lowest-priced shotgun in there is $15K and goes up to about $85K. I've only stood in the door way looking in.$12.5k for that..!! There's a gunmaker over here, Longthorne, the 'entry level' price for one of their 12g shotguns is around $24k, and you'll wait 10 months for that.. Just sayin'.
