Okay, so I'm sure this will attract some attention, but this is NOT a political discussion. I just have a question. I am of the school that you don't really need a firearm unless it serves a purpose (shotgun for birds, high-power rifle for deer, even pistol for self-defense, etc.). But I see a lot of weapons people own (like the AR-10 in the gun photo thread) that I can not for the life of me figure out the purpose of. Can someone tell me if they serve a purpose, or is their purpose that you like them and they're cool? I just don't understand. I still WHOLEHEARTELDY am okay with your right to own these rifles (not being political here), but I'm just curious as to their purpose, you know?
