No we don't need them, but we wants them!  Same thing about a nicer truck, sharper knife, more comfortable chair...ect.  Most of the time what you have is fine, its the want factor that pulls the wallet out.  I personally have a passion for highly accurate custom made rifles.... I can't afford them but I love them non the less.  I own exactly one after 34 years of yearning... That one only because an old friend sold it to me for what he bought the action for ... 20 years ago.
My out of the box remington 700 will shoot under an inch at 100 yds with factory ammo  and so will my custom gun.  Ones just purtier than the other one.[:D]

Thats my opinion about myself and my personal condition....but there are plenty out there who try to buy skill...which can't be done, but like with so many otrher things it is attempted anyway.
It matters not the weapon nor its caliber, rather the caliber of the one who wields it.

PT,
"No we don't need them, but we wants them!"  -- You remind me of that creature from Lord of the Rings. LOL.

Your absolutely correct. IMO, it all comes down to what your willing to spend and what you're happy with.
Some folks try to purchase accuracy as you stated. Others, may feel the need to keep up with the latest and greatest.
I've been blessed to be a cheap son of gun. I try to get the best product I can for the least amount of money possible. If
I feel something is too expensive, I go without.

I'll second that MSHunter! I'm always looking for the best product for the money too. A Marlin XL7 in .270 will probably be one of my next purchases just because it's a quality rifle that is very accurate for around $300, why pay more for a rifle that doesn't shoot as well is how I feel about it. It doesn't hurt that my only rifles so far have been Marlin, I guess that makes me a Marlin fan.

Couldn't have said it better.
 
It all comes down to what we want.
