I bet all the money in my pocket, my G42, with Glock OEM night sights and Talon rubber grip decals, shoots just as well.
Or just door dings...No offense, but never understood that chain of thought?
If you shoot somebody in self defense even the complete loss of a couple grand is likely going to be very low on your list of worries. If civil litigation follows that’s not even going a rounding error to what your going to be spending.
It just reminds me of not wanting to drive a nice car because what if you get hit by a train. :dunno:
