I went $2200 after 2 yrs of saving for it. Likely could not have gone much higher.Nah. Someone who can afford a $2500 gun can also probably afford a $3000 or 4000 gun if they work at it enough.
I have two "Gucci" ARs. One's a Larue Ultimate upper built onto a CMC ambi lower - built that one for my left handed wife as a gift. I think that ended up costing me around 1500 or so. It was the most expensive AR I had to that point.
Then I won a raffle at a match and brought home a Daniel Defense DDM4A1. It was listing for just under 2K, now listing just over 2K. No way I'd spend that kind of money on an AR for myself.
On the other hand, I have a matched set of Kimbers, limited edition 1911s that I spent just under 3K on 10 years ago. They're not quite safe queens, I shoot them a couple times a year. My son gets these.
