    I did that once on my first AR.

    I spent the same thing on the two ARs I have now and they'd kill anything just as good.

    I have a spreadsheet with all of my firearms expenses. After buying and selling tons of different stuff I've reduced my overall costs but it's still a bunch of money. I don't really think I want to add up all of the costs. It might make me :wtc:

    Edit: It's still not as bad as my car hobby.
