A few folks have found things an AR is good for other than your two examples which is why is one of the highest volume selling firearm platforms on the market today.

Note: I would love to have a X30 for activities other than skiing so please donít be offended, just trying to make a point as many AR owners get tired of the stereo typing
I'm not offended in the least.

As someone that had used M4s for their main purpose and knowing what they were designed for from on the onset you argument really doesn't relate.

Boats are meant many reasons. The M4 was designed with a single purpose and that purpose was to kill the enemy. It may have been adapted to other things, surfing is not one of them, but it has a single purpose.

So if you are not sport shooting it or killing people its a waste of your money.

I understand where you are coming from, but for example... if a person's favorite hobbies in life were Prairie Dog hunting in the Dakota's or hog hunting in the South, the AR can be a pretty effective option depending on configuration. Some guys prefer other options, but stating that a AR is a waste of money is like saying a X30 is a waste of money if you don't surf or board. I have a family friend that can't ski anymore because of back injuries, but still owns a MC because he believes they are one of the finest built boats in the industry.

Lets agree to disagree to let the other guys keep the thread on topic

Comparing rifles to boats is a waste of time.
