I'd own and shoot more guns if I lived in the US, but since I'm from South Africa there's a lot of hoops to jump through to get a gun.
(Like a 6+ month wait for your first gun, police have to interview at least 3 family members or friends or colleagues, handguns being 50% more expensive than the US price and double the price for rifles, can only own 200 rounds max per gun unless you join a club and shoot every month or two)

 

I've got a Glock 26 Gen 4 that I carry whenever I leave the house, which I also use for my local club's competitions (and since I shoot regularly enough, the 200 round max doesn't apply to me) but I'm also going to be shooting IDPA BUG with it soon.

 

I've also got a Taurus .38 Special snub revolver which was my first gun until I could afford a better gun. now I shoot the Glock much more than the revolver.

Grandfather's got a FN 1910 in .380 that he last shot about 20 years ago. It was sitting in a gun shop's storage for about a decade, and somehow the front bushing got lost.

Managed to find a replacement part at my local shop. Cleaned it thoroughly with Ballistol so now I just need to oil it and convince my 90 year old grandfather to come with me to the range so I can try it out.


In Topic: NVIDIA Announces TITAN V GPU with Volta and 12 GB HBM2

I would expect the consumer volta (aka Ampere) to be $1500. Call it 2080 Ti or Titan XR or whatever. Than the rest fall into place. I think the next series is getting a $50-250 price hike.

Maybe Titan A at $1500 and a 2080Ti releasing 8 months later at $999 ? And a 2080 at $799 since the x80 isn't usually a whole lot faster than the previous gen x80 Ti card.
