Its not being tossed out the window. I am using the gun daily as it was intended. In the same manner if I were to carry one of my Glocks, HK'S, SW's, etc. etc. It's a gun that works all the time and is comfortable to carry. Cost is the very last thing I think of when choosing a EDC. "What If's" don't even make that list. If "what if's" were all I thought about, I likely would never leave the house. Those "what if" scenarios never include how much that Lawyer is going to cost you or god forbid a Hospital stay. A shooting could cost you your home, your vehicles, your bank accounts, your way of life, etc. etc. etc. Yet people want to focus on the cheapest part of the equation (cost of the gun) The only guns I am attached to are my childhood rifles. Which are monetarily the cheapest guns in my safe, yet more valuable to me, than all the high end guns in there.
