    Maybe I should not have bought one of these.
    Dang they are fun.
    Glocks,1911s,10-22s etc. are also things that start with an initial purchase and then the fun begins.

    Mods, upgrades and more. It never gets boring.

    Before you hang a bunch of crap off your rifle, shoot it. Get instruction. Adding unneeded junk to your gun isn't going to make you a better shooter.

    What he said. I am old school. I like my rifle clean. I was making center of mass hits at 500 meters with an M16-A1. You don't need all the tacticool crap.

    500 meters? You must be a really good marksman. I remember 300 meter targets being difficult to hit.

    No its not, but I want to be able to flashlight them, laser them, and red dot them before I shoot them.

    Just iron sighting them is no damn fun! :cool:

    OP, I agree ARs are money bags.

    Especially when the guy at the gun store hands you his tacticool'd gun and says "hey look at this" :rofl:

    I am not into tacticool, but I like optics, caliber conversions, slings and maybe a light.

    For a home defense weapon, a light is essential. A sling Optics are good, too, but not required. After that, the best accessories are magazines, ammo, and instruction.
