Not that anyone that buys and shoots guns is all that frugal. I just spent 2 hours cutting up bulk flannel I ordered for gun cleaning patches. And I reload. I watch you tube videos and have asked gun forum advice and have managed to keep (3) 1911's running for 45k+ rounds without going to a gunsmith. Doesn't sound like much but I recently bought another very nice 1911. And I think what I saved doing the above more than paid for it.
