    I don't have the slightest clue where to start.
    Do I build one? Or just buy one? Is it cost effective to build? Where do I find the stuff I need?
    Blah, blah, blah.
    $1,000
    Blah, blah
    Shit's expensive
    Blah
    Nothing is in stock
    Blah, blah, blah
    Obama.


    Help?

    I agree with that statement. If I do build, EA is the place to start.

    No shit. I lost out on the chance at S&W M&P15's for ~$800. Now they're $1400.

    Start giving me links. Links to good shit for building an AR, and links to complete AR's for sale.
    I need to do some comparison shopping. I'm ready to buy like yesterday.

  13. You have to decide what you want to do with the rifle. Do you want something simple and practical for plinking and SHTF or do you want something geared towards long range shooting.

    Grab a lower from EA. While you're waiting for that to come in you need to decide what you want the rifle to be. Like already mentioned are you looking for something just for plinking, shtf, long range, etc, etc, etc. Figure out your optics, upper, furniture.. Make a list and start searching.

    Whereabouts in the country are you? That'll make a difference I'd think.
