I know I'm missing something here because I'm an AR-15 noob, but why does putting a sling matter in accuracy?

I'm not too worried about it. Like I said, I've got a relative who's got lots of experience and all the necessary tools and all, and I'm gonna get him to help me out when all my parts come in.

After looking around, I know I could've found an upper for cheaper than I've already spent on all my upper parts. But I couldn't find an upper with all the specs and features I wanted, or at least not for cheap. I spend more than absolutely necessary, but this wasn't a $400 budget gun. I invested some more dough in the parts that I wanted higher quality on, and cut where I didn't think quality mattered as much.

If you need something more powerful than a .45, you need something more powerful than a handgun.
