Finally released yesterday-- those 10 days were LONG. Daniel Defense M4V2 with an Eotech 516.A65 optic and Radlock. The Ares Armor Huskey Amentum sling rocks. Did a light clean and lube on her and can't wait to put some rounds down range this weekend! Thanks to the guys at Riflegear and Ares Armor for all their great and friendly service.

Guns aren't toys.
They are tools.

Thanks for the kind words everyone! I've never used an Eotech before-- my experience has been with iron sights and ACOGs. It was a toss up between the Eotech and Aimpoint-- in the end, I preferred the sight window of the Eotech. Can't wait to get her out to the range this weekend. mlevans66, appreciate it and the fact that you recognized I was using "toy" in a lighthearted manner (I'll post a range report soon). 5 years in the service -- I know guns aren't toys and can serve a far more serious purpose. But they're still a source of enjoyment for me-- love that "new gun smell"! :D

Saw the title of this thread and just KNEW someone was going to go "range blowhard" on this guy.

guns are toys are when you're not being paid to shoot them. When you start getting payed to use them, you can start calling them tools. until then you're just a tool...

to the OP, nice rifle!

Heh, yeah, I was going to jump in here to say that really, referring to firearms as "toys" rubs me the wrong way, like a lack of respect for what it is. Having said that, my guns are not really tools either. Maybe it's because I have kids and I know what toys are and my guns are not toys!

No offense, OP. I'm just saying that in general it bugs me, not that you bug me! ;)

Congrats again on the DD OP.


For the tool...I guess my motorcycles, guns, computers, cameras, etc are not toys...Then I am happy I am me and not you.

Thanks! LOL-- maybe I should have slugged my post "Adult Toys"? :rolleyes:.

I think we all understand that firearms need to be treated with the utmost respect and handled with caution-- and that they are not, in the literal sense, toys.
