    When looking at cost, I also consider whether it's a range toy or a defensive gun. My USP is a range toy.

    During the dark ban years, I paid $120 @ for some of my Sig 226 mags. It hurt. A lot.

    Now I'm confused. Can't seem to find a speedloader for my Vaquero.

    My range toy is my primary 1911, and it accomodates just about all makes of mags. My three carry mags are factory 8 rounders that have been well tested, but for the range and training, I use two junkers. Never had a problem. Can I really have six?

    Whew! TX Chris:]

    I've usually had to stretch to get the best gun, and hope to accessorize it as I go. Dare not remember the $ total put into it in the end. Like my first Lee loader for the 45 Colt ($8.95 back then.)
    I need a calculator to see what I've "saved?" over the years by spending on reloading/casting stuff. I better not. Besides, for me, the money isn't the point. Self sufficiency, independence, self defense, and keeping from going insane (a little crazy maybe) is.
