I don't view guns as investments as I prefer stocks and bonds. If you bought a gun in 1965 for $400 it would need to be worth $3,160.56 just to keep up with inflation meaning no increase in actual value of the $400 initial investment.

Now if you want the gun then I would never discourage anyone from buying a new gun (unless it was a Glock )

+1 If you love the gun, buy it but don't plan on getting rich from it.

Glock is a terrible gun . The last 10 glocks I owned . Not one of them ever jam or miss fire and shoot anything I put in them . So never buy one . All targets shot at 25 yds not the 10 yds some people post .

I figured I get you to post something TGR. Actually never owned, fired or even held a Glock so I really don't have an opinion just though I'd get you going.

Ditto here, though I have handled a Glock or two. Local LE uses the 19, IIRC, but State Police uses Sig 320.

I've been surprised that TGR isn't more of a Luddite.....
