Hard to get ammo if its a .223 right now. I'd sit on it awhile and wait this frenzy out. Lots of guys on here have it figured out on the good AR's from what I've read. You might read thru some of their post for some good direction Rustygrill. Just my 2 cents on it.

Yeah I will probably take your advice and hold off. But I think I do want a .223

Thank your KimberFan

It's a great time to sell right now. But it's a horrible time to buy. I'd wait.

Don't buy if you can help it. I wouldn't sell my two for less than 5k and neither are worth more than 1500 each right now. GL

Bushmaster is what I would do, due to low cost.

Yeah I think your right, are you speaking of AR's only. I think hand guns are ok to buy still right ?

Seeing that you posted this in the Concealed Carry section, I am more interested in how you plan to conceal the dern thing.

Normally, this type of question is posted in the AR section.
