    AR 15s and Harleys

    With the discovery of left handed rifles, and my fear of Hillary winning the election(now you know why I avoid the dog track), I'm about 8 months into AR ownership. So lately, I've been paying a lot more attention to AR chatter on this site.

    I've noticed a parralell between ARs and Harleys. Everyone that has one swears it's the greatest thing ever, then immeadiately starts swapping parts, and modifying them. Am I the only guy here with a stock AR?

    It's not that everyones swapping because the parts aren't good...it's just to make it...yours. I ride a motorcycle, and I do the same thing to it (only then its usually just performance parts because it's a sportbike).

    The AR is an extremely versatile platform that can be customized to your needs. Is a collapsing stock better than a regular stock, or vice versa? No. But I change from sitting, to standing, to prone a lot, and like to be able to make it fit just right. Of course, it's not as good as a club, and maybe the slight movement makes it a little less accurate for precision shooting. I think it's a great rifle in its stock form, but I also have the ability to make it perfect for what I will be using it for.

    Why are people changing out things on their other firearms? As the previous poster said, to make them yours.

    Mainly to change out parts you need or want to have on your rifle. Having a railed forend lets you put a light on it or other parts.

    Have a DPMS, and it's stock, or well that depends on if you count a scope as a modification or not????

    Can't do much more than that with a Harley, since they sit in the garage most of the time anyway. Harley's are to look at, the others are to ride.

    I think with AR's it's sometimes more about affordability for some of us, versus other priorities. You can first afford the basic set up, then add on what you really wanted when you can afford it. That's one advantage of AR's. LOL... I have the lower assembly, stock, etc. ... now I just have to work on being able to get the rest.

    I have a couple of low dollar scopes that I can slap on mine. And I did add a $20 or so mount for either a light or a laser to my carbine. My H-Bar, I have a cheek piece I can put on it for when I use the scope. Other than that it looks G.I.

    Ooops...I might oughta have mentioned I've ridden Harleys for quite a while. And it's heavily modified, and sitting in the garage. Only because the wind speed is higher than the temperature.

    I used to. I went to the other side.... LOL. Obviously, I ride too (see avator). Love it. There used to be no weather except actual snow & ice on the ground that could keep me from riding (after I got divorced )... however, the last 2 yrs I've been staying home in the really cold weather more often.

    I don't care what anyone else rides .... any more than what kind of gun they own... own and shoot the one you like, as long as it shoots, and if you like to ride... ride whatever suits you.

    But, I couldn't pass that up. It seems there are a lot of people who "think" they'ld like to ride, buy a Harley, then it sits in the garage for the next 3 yrs..... such a waste. I think I've seen more garage Harley's than any other bike (a real shame).

    Doing mods on my bike(s), was one reason I hadn't gotten the AR yet, but now I'm working on the AR .... thanks Obama.
