both of my lenses were more than that: my 70-200 lens was $2300 and my 24-70 was $1800 <--- there's 3 AR15's right there....
my D700 was $2600
my D800 was $3000
so yeah, i'd have an assault team if i wouldn't have spent so much money on my camera stuff.
either way - sorry for turning this into a money/camera/gun debate.
i was just trying to explain one of the reasons that i am not a gun guy
Actually AR's are more like $900-$3000 depending, and decent handguns are $500-1000+. So even if you got all low end stuff and absolutely no ammunition or accessories your numbers were just cutting it. I have over $9K invested (not including safes or ammo) and I only have 3 long guns (.22, .556 and 12GA) and 5 pistols. Spent at least another couple thousand just on ammo last year.
