See signature quote Big Grin

But to answer the OP, no, I don’t consider the cost. But I also just carry a pretty basic Glock 19. The cost of the gun has no bearing on my decision to carry it though.

I do have a second Glock 19 just in case this one breaks or in case I have to surrender it for any reason.

An instructor once told the class I was in:

"If you are afraid to drop it (police),
don't use it as your carry pistol..."

I've got a few high dollar pistols that I regularly carry for defensive purposes, including models from Nighthawk Custom, Wilson Combat, and Les Baer. If you've got the means to carry the best, why skimp? Would you go low bid on a parachute, knowing the less expensive model works reliably most of the time? Wink

Just because something is legal to do doesn't mean it is the smart thing to do.

I can't even imagine owning a $5000.00 gun of any type.


Integrity is doing the right thing, even when nobody is looking.

I actually stole that from from Clint Smith at a class. He was carrying a 1911 that was valued at $7000

I don't consider the cost of the gun I carry. P228, P226, or when I pickup my latest renewal permit on the 28th a P229. The first two have been to the volcano base for tweaking. The third I put volcano base DIY parts in. None of them are on the roster anymore, so unless/until that is overturned they'll be difficult and expensive to replace (why I have spares for the first two and will keep an eye out for a spare for the third). I don't care about that. While it is unlikely that I'll ever need to fire them in defense, if I do I want the best tools I can manage. If I have to fire them in defense, the cost of replacing them is probably a rounding error compared to legal costs. You have to be alive to worry about the costs of the aftermath and it seems to me like that is the more important thing to worry about.
