Might pick up another one, or two, to have on hand. Also reached out to a vendor of the uppers to find out what else I need to get, on top of one of their kits. Seems like it includes everything except a stripped lower receiver.

Right now, I plan on building up one complete AR. Not sure on barrel length (between 16" and 24") but I'll want a couple of option right from the start. Might go with a more standard (and lower cost) upper for the other receiver. Then, when I can afford it, I might get a different upper configured differently. Great thing about the AR platform is I can change the upper's around or switch out one for another, depending on what I want to do with them.

Hopefully the madness will go away and things will return to something resembling sanity soon. IMO, people need to get more twist resilient panties.

Yeah, my wife is regularly reminding me that I'm supposed to be building her one before I can't anymore. I just don't want to go and fight the crowds as most of the folks running down to the gun shops are the type that don't have a clue how to handle a gun and start lasering folks and wasting everyones' time asking all the great questions like, "which one has more knock down power," "what machine gun should I get the AR or the AK," "how do I remove the magazine (while holding a bolt action with a floor plate)?" and so on and so forth...so, I'll wait and pick one up later.

Where did you get these lowers from? I've been looking at a few places (I'm pretty sure all sold out), and we have a group buy feeling right now on NES. I hope that goes through because they're hoping to get lowers for under $100. I'm seeing stripped ones between $135-165ish and some others asking the moon for them.

I have a litttle extra right now, and contemplating on buying one, and then building one. I need to start buying mags now I guess just in case!

Good luck finding mags. I've been seeing pmags online selling for a lot of five between $200 and $600.

Yeah that's why I would like to move to DE.
My mother got a shotgun and a case of wine Christmas.

Picked up a virtually un-used 20 round mag the same day (and at the same place) I got the two lowers. I'll be looking for some more 20-30 (or higher) mags over the next few weeks. While I only need the one, I'd like to have a few more for use.

BTW, the same place I got the two lowers from, is sold out and doesn't have an ETA on getting more. Really glad I grabbed two instead of just one.

No joke. My local cabelas and cheaper than dirt were sold out. I hear CTD is asking $60 each for pmags when they do have them. The local shop by my folks place had 8 left, all desert tan and asking $50 each. My friend went to the gun show this weekend and said he couldn't find pmags anywhere. Makes me wish I had bought more when they were $10-12 at the guns shows.
