Take the money and get a few Glocks. You got me there.
A few Sig's, too.
One or two nice 1911's.
But I'd keep several, the best shooters, and I'd carry them. I carry a 1911 most of the time. I love beater 1911's as much as I love a sexy one.
I guess my point is, if it was a barrel of Glock 17's, it would not evoke anywhere near the same reaction.
That right there is Americana.
