I would love to own an AR. I wish I could afford one. I feel so pressured to buy certain guns before they become 'forbidden'.

WOC, I can almost guarantee you that if you go out and buy a $100 (or so) stripped lower receiver now you'll have a fully functioning AR by the end of the year! With all the stickies and help from the forum you really won't have much trouble (you've seen new people do this and it always works out if they buy decent parts). Or you could just put a S&W M&P-15 Sport on layaway...

Anyway, for now, the stripped lower is the federally controlled part (i.e. "firearm") so the one to buy first if you decide to build. Now you would want to make certain of your local laws since in IL.

And if you decide the AR is too expensive to shoot, well look at the .22LR versions like the S&W M&P15-22.
