What do you keep on your AR rifle?

So the question I have is this what do we keep on our rifles that we have forgotten about?

I’m sure you are sitting there thinking I have this, this and this on my rifle. what do you mean I have forgotten about something? Well what are the rail attachments that we bought and mounted to our guns because we thought we needed that micro red dot or that IR laser but 90% of the time we only hunt or shoot from the bench with our rifles so these extras don’t get used.

My Samson forend is set up for quad rails and I have two little 2” on the left and right side of the rifle near the barrel in case I wanted to mount a camera or micro red dot or a laser but more times than not I use my main scope for all of my shots and never use that laser.

Bare boned my rifle weighs in at 8 pounds but once I start adding the scope and the forward grip and a laser and my micro red dot my rifle gets heavy at 11-12+ pounds.

Do we need to periodically review what we keep on our rifles and assess what we keep on them?
