There are two types of shooters in the world... those that 2,000 rounds will last a lifetime, and those that 2,000 rounds is a slow month.
I'd be very curious as to how much hand finishing is required on these firearms. While the 1911 is a simple design and commonly produced the difference between a weapon cranked out with CNC and finished by an assembly line gunsmith is notably different than the same parts finished by an accomplished smith who understands the finer points of the firearm.
I'd also point out that 2,000 rounds is no testament to durability, rather it's just barely out of what most 1911 enthusiasts consider the break-in period.
You choose to purchase a vehicle.
You choose to ride a motorcycle.
In both examples you are making a choice, and choosing to comply with laws passed around those activities. If for example I do not believe in utilizing vehicles, I am not forced to purchase seat belts and helmets.
I personally choose to use the medical facilities available, and as such I choose to have insurance. If I didn't choose to use the facilities, forcing me to purchase insurance is a clear violation of my rights.
Other posters have mentioned water... only if you choose to own property within city limits, etc...

What you're missing is that Glider wasn't used for the handicapped, it was used to totally automate gameplay and level from 1 to 70 while farming loot.
The running joke in my guild was that the UI mod (BOT) I wrote was for my crippled friend who could only press one button over and over... the fact that the one button was hooked to a logic trap that played the game for me is what was cheating.
Glider doesn't even require a button press now and then, you start it, and off you go, for as long as you stay connected, running the script.
