Exactly -- I have a 43 oz. S&W 1006 that is 100% reliable, too, and it was a hell of a lot cheaper. It's a great conversation piece, but then so is the .50 GI!
I don't know, maybe I'm getting old, but it seems like there are more and more "Show & Tell" guns out there and few really good NEW ideas. Sort of like the discussion in the other thread about the ".327 Magnum". Oooo-Ahhh....like there was never a .32 Cal handgun before. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think most police officers were carrying .32s around the turn of the 20th Century.
