I have more rifles than I can shoot. I haven't touched my 18" or Tavor X95 in months. I just built a 12" Grendel sbr and might get to shoot it sometime this week.
Everytime PSA has a sale on something I want with 10 PMAGs, I but it. I've got cases of ten pmags clogging up the closet. My 5.56 ammo is sparse (IMO) at only 8000+ rounds. I've stopped buying 5.56 since I rarely shoot it and am concentrating on 300blk and 6.5 Grendel.
Not minority enough!
Bingo. A few threads over the past year have stated that if a person doesn't have an AR or two, now's the time to get the lower/upper/rifle. But for many of us here, we don't lack for ARs.
I have enough assembled lowers to last the rest of my life. And it's not a fleet of budget builds, but rather a small group of purpose-built ARs. No scrimping on optics. I'd rather have one AR that fills its intended role perfectly, instead of three that sorta/kinda/maybe do what's necessary. In various carbine courses I've seen a trigger fail at 20k rounds, and buffer springs getting weak at 10k-ish rounds. Those are likely my lower wear items.
I have more magazines than I will ever need -- courtesy of my state's messed up mag capacity laws. But it allows me to toss my grandfathered mags without worry as they malfunction. So the 1-2 mags I'm losing per year are no big deal. I figure I can toss 3-4 per year over the rest of my life any I'm fine.
Ammo is my primary consumable. I don't buy it by the case to hoard, but rather to replenish what's being shot. I'm now finding that barrels are a consumable supply, too. I pulled one shot-out barrel this year, probably will need another next year, and another the year after that.
There are no dust bunnies on my ARs. Dirt, mud, sand, scratches, wear marks -- you betcha.
In my dads “opinion”;
That’s enough mags for 5 guns but only enough ammo for 2.5 guns ... keep working on it!
BTW ... I don’t have 10 mags & 1k of ammo per gun either
If you really want something you'll find a way ...
... if you don't you'll find an excuse.
I'm really not a "kid" anymore ... but I haven't grown up yet either
