    Default How many AR's do I need?

    we could make this a poll... I have a few (true number undisclosed) most purchased FTF, a few special ones from the dealer with background check...
    Palmetto State is having their Labor Day sale - I (or you ) could pick up another for under $500 ... Should I ? (I know the answer is yes)

    Speaking as a professional perpetually broke-ass MOFO... If you already HAVE an entry level AR, unless you just want to have enough of them stashed away for "whatever", I would pass.

    Bare bones, basic M4 style carbines... everyone should own one, and they are a GREAT value for someone with not a lot of money, but they are just not that interesting.
    I would (and do) build each gun differently - the way I want them to be.
    I post those bargain guns up in the Deals thread all the time, but it's pretty rare that I actually wish I had the money to buy any of them - I'd rather build one the way I want it.

    All that said, I will (yet again) say that anyone who has been putting off buying because they are waiting for the prices to come back down, NOW is that time.
    If you wait, hoping to save another $20, you are a dumb fuck that can not be reasoned with, and you deserve to suffer the agony of "I SHOULD HAVE BOUGHT ONE WHEN THEY WERE $500 and NOW THEY ARE $1,000 DOLLARS BECAUSE (fill in the political event that changes things overnight)!!!"

    I*m fairly certain you had need covered a long time ago. Buy what you want and can afford.

    This is where I am. Iron sights, carry handle, no bells/whistles.

    All my bucket list firearms are checked off, except for that Thompson.

    that is the beauty of the platform, with a minimum of mechanical skill and some cheap easily found tools on line, you can lego the heck out of your entry level M4gery into some higher end bolt on attachments, like a better barrel, different hand guards etc etc budget permitting
    sell your take off or keep it if you want to have spares or build another .

    Yep. N + 1...

    But honestly, AR's are usually worth the sum of their parts, and like already said, not that 'interesting.'

    If you have enough for your future defense force, maybe one or two extra.

    Do you have a AR pistol in 300blk with a can? This can be carried loaded in your car legally. Also lots of ammo. Lots of ammo.

    I don't know, if you hunt with them there is quite a few calibers out there now. I am guilty of multiple calibers, but like bortle said, "Also lots of ammo. Lots of ammo".

    As two is one and one is none*..at least one of each of the following

    As above AR pistol in 300 BO with a can

    Basic entry level 16 inch no frills beater

    18 inch squad designated marksmen configuration

    20inch full out CMP. competition rig. Then get to a local club match

    At least two set up with a dedicated .22 rim fire upper and a target trigger . One set up with light weight barrel, the other set up like CMP rifle. Plus lots of ammo as you will shoot these a lot, as will kids, grandkids, ladies, truckers, bikers*well everyone. Then get to an Appleseed shoot. Once you have an entry level rifle this should be second choice

    At least one in winter camo for varmint hunts in snow.

    A pistol caliber carbine

    If you venture into other states, a NY compliant one, including low capacity mags��

    So what did I miss?
