This wasn't so much a panic buy as it was a "I changed jobs during election time and my old job had to cut me a check for 6 weeks of vacation" buy. I honestly wasn't trying to mall ninja it out. I didn't put anything on that I didn't think would be useful as a all around end of the world type of gun. I didn't really NEED the foregip but I couldn't find a good way to set the light up that didn't require the fore grip to operate it comfortably. I tried to keep everything as light weight as possible. Last thing I need to add is a sling.
