Most don't have unlimited resources to buy Wilson Combat Supergrades and Perrazzi's.....hence the compromise to get the best quality they can afford. For those who compromise, it's a still boils down to price. I'm pretty sure Donald Trump doesn't want the "best buy" based on price, he chooses the best quality.....and doesn't shed a tear. I tend to have Donald Trump tastes and occasionally pick up high end quality, unlike him I tend to cry a little.
Yeah see post #6 on the first page.
But that's not stopping folks from making sure I know the answer
On that note I bought a bakers dozen High Points after the second debate to spite a much smarter person than I.
The Ruger P95 and Maverick 88 turn it on its head--and are just as good(or better) than anything in their category.
While for scopes and AR's --it starts with Ziess and Colt
Ity costs you once , crap costs you every time it breaks, which on cheap stuffs frequently
Prior Planning and Preparation Prevents Poor Performance.
They are called AK's. Their popularity is due to the fact that they DO work.
Take a look at what folks in NZ pay, at the "World's largest Gun Store" (their description)
When you see what others pay, maybe folks here will stop whining - and that is from another gun-friendly country
It's an internet thing but you get the point.
Not everyone needs a custom built $3000.00 rifle to shoot 1 hole groups at 100 or 200 yards.
Nor does everyone need a $1000 to $2000 :Leica scope or a $4000 dollar Schmidt & Bender scope.
Do we all drive Bentlys and Roll Royces?
People have no freaking clue what they are talking about.
If it were only that simple!
Totally. I made this mistake with my first mounted shooting SA revolvers. I was getting into the sport and had alot of expenses.
Found a "good deal" (you have to buy 2 guns) and thought I was good.
They were junk and altho most guns for mounted shooting need additional smithing for competition (altho some now come competition-ready)....I wasted alot of time at the SAS gunsmith and those guns never ran reliably. I'd get partway thru a meet and have to borrow guns. My entire first yr was that way.
It was frustrating and lost me matches and slowed down my developing some skills.
I ended up just giving up on them and buying standard reliable guns available in the sport and the guy I bought them from did the additional work on them for $25/gun (instead of the normal approx. $200/pr). And the absolute relief from not having to worry about my guns performing allowed me to focus on my own performance....and we had a ton of fun and won some $$.
Just imagine if you had that peace of mind with self-defense guns? Fortunately for me, I did that right from the start
It probably means...you haven't done it yet
One may need to take into consideration ones age, and financial situation along with others factors. Price alone is not the only deciding factor as to what one needs or its quality.
Of course not, and nobody said nor implied that.
Most often comes true on tools and optics, I try to stick to high quality and US made as much as possible myself.
