Welcome to the Glock owners club!
If you were a smart man you would not pay more for something than what it is worth. When somebody pays $1000 for a gun, and then they find out they could have paid $500 for a Glock, they must now defend their decision to pay more and call it "a better gun"...... or they would no longer be considered smart..... would they? Now you know YOU are the smart one! for buying the better/cheaper gun.
