Default With the money enough to buy an iPhone X, which handgun would you like to buy?

I used to be a digit fun, and bought a lot of electronic products, from early Hi-Fi devices, PDAs to recent phones and cameras. However, when I come to the gun world, I find that there are really some pieces of stuff, which does not only work but still be worth even after decades.

Today, iPhone X is released. With the money enough to buy it, which handgun do you think more worth it?

Buy a lightly used nice 1911 or 2 new od green Glocks. Even used Glocks go for almost 500 when a new one cost just a lil over 500.
Electronics are the biggest waste of $$ ever. Right next to alcohol and drugs. Lol
I know i know i have 2 daughters that like nice phones. They have Glocks and various other guns and i remind them how their cell phones are worth nothing after a couple years when their guns are still worth the same.
Any gun you buy in california is worth it because eventually it will be taken away.

A nice Smith&Wesson revolver is a good buy for the long run. So are HK, Sigs, 1911s etc.

Have you seen what an original first gen unused in box iPhone is going for these days? They make a Python sound cheap.

An unused in box iPhone vs. an unused in box Python?

I'm not sure which is worth more, but I'm sure if you open the boxes and play them for a while, or shoot a few rounds, one becomes a piece of electronic waste, and the other is still a gun.

Yeah, I hear you! I bought a $500 mp3 player in 2001... it had 6 Gb of storage and ran for 45 minutes on 4 AA batteries! It's worth about 1 cent now. I bought a $400 Glock in 1999, it's probably worth $399 now ... and still works.

This guy with his $19,000 iPhone seems slightly more optimistic than many off-roster sellers in the marketplace:

https://www.ebay.com/p/Apple-iPhone-...d=253142022506

I like how he still won't spring for the $13 shipping.

It's just about enough for tooling and a parts kit to build a nice AK.

Nobody mentions Dillon 650? Or it's considered as an investment rather than spending?

What a waste. Apple continues to get more expensive and offer mediocre improvements. Plus at least 50% of the "new" tech has been in an android for quite some time.

I ain't drinking that cool-aid.
