Come back when you're level 5,428 and you can buy it for $20,000.
This is true. I'm level 21 and I go to the gun shop in hopes of treating myself with a new toy but I get there and it's a pretty depressing collection of, what's available for me to buy? 2 shitty pistols and 2 shitty subs. Max armor requires level 50 too.
