I advise: admire it from afar. Maybe a little drooling before you let the price bring you back to reality.

Though actually, $1000 for a specialty gun like that isn't that outrageous. Well, maybe for a pistol... But my dad collects and shoots various rifles, pistols, and shotguns, and his whole collection is probably worth thousands of dollars.

If you really want one you could make one. That is the point of steampunk, after all. Buy a nerf gun and modify it (paint it, add bits and bobs, etc.). It probably won't look as good as the 1000$ one, but it will still be neat. c:

(Plus, there is nothing that makes you feel cooler than answering "I made it" when people asked where you got something from :P)
