    Carried a M16 back in the 60's, have an AR now, but none of the answer options work for me. It ain't love, it is practicality.

    it's a line from the movie anchorman. it makes no sense.
    maybe love is the wrong adjective, though a lot of people sure do obsess over then like it's love.

    then again, I could say I love shooting pistols the same way I love trucks or food.

    I like the fact that they are simplistic enough to build and knowing I will have a one of a kind. There is a satisfaction to building and firing that first projectile into a target.

    Don't know, but I voted for it. :beat:

    Like others, see them as more useful then any sort of love, but I would think that looking at what I had one would argue it might be more of a fetish. I definitely seem to be hoarding AR and AR accessories over the past couple years.
