I used to have Production, Limited, and Single Stack competition guns, all tricked out by very well know gunsmiths, and complete rigs for each. I had 2 presses for 40 and 9 and bought my 45 rounds from Walmart, since I shot it the least. When my vision got to the point I couldn't see the front sight without cheaters I bought a CKArms Open Gun. I couldn't afford it at the time, but it was that or get out of the sport as I couldn't stand all the vision correction methods I tried. Well, long story short, I was rejuvenated, I could see. I loved shooting again. I have not shot anything but open for 2 years. I sold all 3 of my other competition guns and presses. I have a company load for me to my specifications. My gun has not failed me even once in 2 years, I don't have the headache of reloading, and I really enjoy the sport again.
Do what makes you happy. If stressing over money takes all the fun out of it, do what you did.
If I ever needed to cut back on expenses I'd try CArry Optics, but I love my Open Gun and I hate mag changes.... Lol
