Default Geardo question

why do you put the high dollar tactical slings, lights and parts your AR? May be a dumb question but what use do you have for a 3pt or wolf hook sling in the civilian world? look cool and spend money on stuff? a surefire light?? are you gonna be clearing rooms? i can see them if used in a hunting application when tracking at night. Last is why put all the tactical rails and garbage on them? does it make them shoot better or is it more of a pecker measurer at the range for who dumped the money money into a supped up .22?

Hmm, maybe you were never in the Military? You have to plan ahead. What'cha gonna do say after a major power outage (hurricane, ??), and you have loiters coming in your house, with nothing on their mind but rape and killing? No power, generator don't work or out of fuel, how ya gonna see what you're shooting, a bad guy or your family? w/o that surefire light and laser dot, you won't know? Properly sighted, that laser dot will mark exactly where that round will hit. So if a zombie is holding a family member hostage, you can dot his eyeball w/o fear of hitting your family member.
Those "tactical rails" enable you to add/adjust for these lights, laser pointers and certain scopes. So yes, this stuff not only looks cool, but it does the job it was intended for, if and when that threat emerges.
Those 3-way slings, enable you to multitask w/o limiting the use of your hands, also aides in the fast acquisition of a target, and can keep the zombie from taking the weapon away from you, b/c it is strapped to you.
Just my .02 cents, and justification of spending my money. hehehehe
