    Tough to say, but my wife continues to hear "just one more....."

    We'll they are so configurable I suspect each persons answer to be quite different.

    I'd love to have a 24" bull barrel target gun, a 16" barrel predator gun and a pink left handed 16" for the wife... It doesn't hurt to dream right!

    Isn't half the purported appeal that these things are modular? That appears to be the battlecry anyway.

    So if you're going to buy nine of something, who cares about modular?

    I think two lowers ought to be enough.

    I've opined to my friends who came home from the sandboxes they should have one AR configured exactly how they wanted hanging by the head of their bed for the rest of their life for things that go bump in the night, and a second lower for however many uppers they want to collect.

    I have found that I really enjoy bench shooting my AR. It shoots tiny little groups with the right loads, recoil is non existent, it is cheap to reload for, and I have found that I can load 5 in the mag and shoot a 5 round group pretty quickly while maintaining accuracy. I don't think of it as a defense or offense weapon any more than my bolt guns, its just another gun that is fun to shoot.

    That said, I think one is enough for me. I don't own multiples of any caliber, except 22lr.

    So many calibers, why not have one of each?

    To each their own.

    Do you go to the golf course with one club? Do you only have only one arrow in your quiver? You can if you choose to. My choice may be different than yours. Favor Center

    The number is 3 for me.
    One registered SBR lower.
    One for Title 1 uppers.
    One LWRCI SIX8 lower to use the new polymer mags.

    At least one more and after that, at least one more. I don't know, it seems that I need to get at least one more gun of some type every so often, otherwise I get really grumpy.

    That's easy...one more than I have right now. I have;
    3 Armalites....AR-10 B model, 16" A4 flat top, M-15 A-4 carbine, 16" flat top. M-15, 20" flat top, stainless match rifle, Wylde chambered
    2 LWRCs........ M-6 SL and a new R.E.P.R chambered in 7.62x51 with lots of bells and whistles
    2 Patriot Ordnance...A 20" 308 configured as a DM rifle and a 14.5" Carbine (with pinned flash suppressor) in 5.56 chamber.
    1 Troy......standard carbine 16" with their 13" hole punched hand guard.
    1 Franklin Armory light weight 14.5" in 5.56.
    Plus a couple of uppers in different chamberings to snap on when desired.
    And as soon as I decide what my next will be it will be.

    I hunt with these rifles, I shoot multi gun comp, I use them in my classes to teach proper use and handling and AR rifle marksmanship. Passing on a skill set that could save lives. Those who don't find them necessary may one day wish they hadn't beat their swords into plow shears so quickly to please tyrants, submit to thugs or appear politically correct in the face of terror.

    I think the going answer is "just one more.." LOL.

    For me, I'd like to have a complete AR for each member of my family. That would certainly reduce the arguments at the range.

    For now I'll settle for finishing the ones I'm working on. Personally, I tend to reduce the calibers rather than have a bunch. I'd rather have 12 guns shooting the same caliber and a massive pile of rounds for them than 12 calibers and a small stack for each. That's just me, I know many don't share my opinion.

    I can understand the "zero" crowd. I enjoy the wood and steel rifles more.

    I "need" several and enjoy the specific uses of each. True you can move parts around, but it's not as easy or quick as some say, at least for me. I'm very hesitant pounding out pins.

    I wanted to build the Wife a pink one, but she would not allow it; EBR, light weight, for her.

    All our ARs are in .223. We try to keep a good supply of components for them. I'm considering a couple of other cals. (uppers). That would just mean some more of something else, not less of the .223. Might need another lower or two.
