So I guess this has gone south. From what I've seen in firearms, price is
a good indicator of the value and or quality of that piece. Reference a
$200 Davis pistol Vs. Kimber Ultra Carry 2, There is a difference and it will
be notable. By the higher price of the Kimber and word of mouth, etc.,
that the name is being associated with a higher quality and reliability.
Never owned a Lexus, or a Porsche, so it can be said also many don't buy cars
or higher priced firearms to impress you on some forum.
So your answer is if the gun is bad we also need to look at the who and
why they own it. The car they may drive or the fan-boys at the forum.
Not very global at all, its a good many guns (BOLO SOLO) not functioning
properly, and again NOT what one drives, wears, or associates with.
I envision purchasing a firearm that functions as designed. Firearm
purchase pricing is similar to optics ?, cars ? boats ? planes ?,
and underwear ! But if you pay for other than bottom of the barrel,
should you not expect better. An item that you don't have to work
through and around its faults constantly. How long would you put up
with an alarm clock that constantly failed, and you need to be at
work on time, as your income depends on it. not long.
How much tolerance should you have, on a critical defensive item?
Our backgrounds, experience and exposure dictates tolerance.
I don't think a Lexus has much to do with it.
And as always this is just IMHO
