Yikes. You can do this on your own for around $1,300 Whoever is milking people for $3,800 is a genius.
I am actually trading in my Beretta 92F for the H&K P30L which is what he used in the first movie. All the reviews say it shoots like butter. A pistol or rifle is a tool and it's only as good as the person operating it.
Buying ridiculously overpriced firearms is crazy since the same results can be achieved with less expensive arms and a sh!t load of practice.

Saw this last night. Fun, but not as good as the first two, and the first one was the best.

I assume you are just comparing the 2011 to a custom Glock 34 as it is clearly not a Glock.

The Jw3 STI Combat master is built on a Browning 1911, but the company also did a Glock 34 from John Wick 2.

I'd have a hard time justifying spending more than 1 grand on a pistol in 9mm.

John Wick's is, it's just modified.

I just bought a Sig MPX 9mm and my wife was pissed for what I paid but it's a great piece. People here don't even blink at dropping that kind of money on a statue, I see it the same way.

Agreed. My gun collection is not what it could have been because of statues of Batman and Captain America. I had to resist getting the XM 1/3 Cap. (For a vacation not a gun) My desire for firearms is beginning to overtake my desire for more statues though.

Yes, not disputing that it was a modified Glock 34 for John Wick 1 and 2, but for JW3 it is a STI 2011 at the end that the concierge gave him in the safe room.

Loved it. Brutal.

Loved the "guns lots of guns" line

I'm pretty sure that fall was a call back to Neo's.
