Just a fun question I was thinking about. Do you view guns as strictly a tool, or is their an aesthetic aspect to it.
My defense guns are boring looking tools. I enjoy practicing with them, but they are just M&P striker fire guns. My full size M&P is a Flat Dark Earth color that I thought was cool.
That being said, I have a little .22 revolver that is a fun gun, it looks cool. It’s a cheap way to get more out of my range time. When I look at 1911s and Revolvers they seem like works of art to me. There are guns I would like to have just to collect.
Disclaimer- at the end of the day my gun is a tool. Like a car gets me from point A to point B. We all know an old Toyota with a chipped paint, missing bumper, and over 200,000 miles will get you from point A to B. However, some people like to have a newer vehicle, and some people like a sports car with all the bells and whistles. I saw a gun with a Texas flag on it. I wanted the gun, but I would not carry it because I just want a plain gun if I’m a defensive shooting. BUT I wouldn’t mind owning it.
