ARs,

How many are too many ?


At what point would you think it is wasteful ?


At what point would you feel silly ?


I get it a lot also depends on other carbines but I am not going to factor those in yet.


I am thinking one way to differentiate may be to get uppers in different calibers so you at least have the option to have a different caliber.

I recall your 450 bushmaster thread where you mentioned build for fun to have different caliber.


I thought about maybe selling some that were kind of wasteful but now leaning towards getting some different calibers set up just to shoot something different.

I don't mind how many people have, if you can afford it, great...but why would a regular person need more than 1? Is it because people don't want to sell their old one when they upgrade?

6 or 7

 

That’s an incredible collection of interchangeability....

 

I wish I spent more on quality AK though....

Different calibers, barrel lengths, and setups for different purposes.

.300 blackout with an 8” barrel is a pleasure to shoot - it would be perfect in a riot situation.

You mean like 1 for home defense, another for target shooting?

the optimum number is "current number owned + 1"

I may have too many. I have 8 AR’s. 3 DD’s , 2 Aeros, 2 BCM’s and 1 Colt. 

 

Also have many PCC’s.

My favorite which I carry a lot is my Sig MCX. Shoots 556 and folds nicely into my small Vertx sling bag
