I fail to understand why people buy these things then hang another $800 worth of gadgets off it.
Because, properly set up, they make fantastic home defense weapons; even better than shotguns in my opinion.
My current setup is a 5.56 Daniel Defense with a 16" lightweight barrel and a modular float rail system, a Fenix flashlight mounted at 2 o'clock near the gas block (I'm right-handed and I like my light to be on the right side), an EOTech as primary and Magpul flip-up sights for backup. And a V-Tac sling and Lancer mags round out the package. Throw in some V-Max or TAP rounds and you have a far better home defense weapon for most situations than a handgun or shotgun.
