No two persons are exactly alike. No two will agree on everything. When building your own AR, do it the way you want it done. Don’t pay attention to those calling the result “ugly.” I’m aware that my newest build is not on everyone’s beauty list, but I like it, and that’s all that matters. Story over. Except it’s not . . .
I’ve had positive feedback for the most part in the gun (parts list below.) But I find it humorous that when a friend called my new gun ugly. I laughed saying ” it’s not for everyone.” My liberal friend said “you’re not offended are you, Sara?” As if I was more worried about how my gun looks to others than the fact that they’re concerned that I actually have one.
Either way, it takes more than words to offend me. I wouldn’t do what I do – write, blog about guns, build guns, etc. – if I cared what others thought. I don’t need a safe space like these crybabies on college campuses that can’t handle a difference of opinion.
I’ve been called fat and dumb and ugly and many other things I can’t type here – simply because I’m a gun rights advocate. None of that changed my mind. I didn’t get offended or cry myself to sleep. Others’ opinions of my appearance or my beliefs are not my concern, especially if they are negative in nature.
Most gun owners are like myself: they believe that the greatest freedom we have is the freedom to pursue happiness as we see fit. As long as we don’t hurt others, we should be free to keep and bear arms in whatever form we choose, whether that’s a traditional hunting gun, a muddy girl camo rifle or a full-auto SBR. Unlike gun control advocates, we simply want to be left alone. That’s what we consider beautiful.
