Question about the last ban. If you had a AR with a collapsible stock, bayonet lug, and a flash hider when the ban came into place, did you have to have all that removed?

As far as the former federal AWB, they were grandfathered in. There's no way today to be sure what a new law will permit. Or if there will be a new law next year.

The 1994 ban only prevented you from buying certain new parts, like hi-cap mags, bayonet lugs, flash hiders. If you already had that stuff, you could keep it. You could also buy the same guns with out that stuff, or stuff that was manufactured before the cutoff date.

What I don't get is all these posts asking what a future ban will ban. Who the hell knows? It hasn't happened yet. Nothing says it has to be like the last one. I would be tempted to say it might be more severe in nature.

As to the worry about buying AR lowers and not being able to find uppers: buy the lower, it will be worth more next week, & next year, most likely. So you can't find an upper.....sell the lower for a profit. Last week I bought 6 P Mags. I have no AR. Now, 5 days later, they're likely worth more. No one has them on the shelves. I'm not worried.

Should it come to that, I predict an uptick in tragic boating accidents involving firearms in deep water.

Sorry, but if you are buying PMAGS and don't even own an AR, then YOU are part of the problem.

That pisses me off. I have 2 AR's and can't find PMAGs because of *******s like him. I hope the market gets flooded with Mags so all these ****tards buying them up get screwed.

Did I maybe forget to mention that I'm looking to acquire parts slowly to build one? Been thinking about it for a while. Thought I'd start with the potentially hardest to get/going to be scarce parts 1st. Lower is next. After that a lower parts kit. Am I an a$$hole until I have the whole thing completed?

Maybe if you own an AR already, you should have bought some mags to go with it, huh? If I made that mistake, I'd be pissed, too. As far as I know, it's a free market, and I can buy whatever I want, for any reason. I probably wouldn't even sell them, unless it becomes impossible to complete the gun.

No offense. Don't blame him.. this is free market. You should blame yourself for not moving fast! Not to mention supply vs demand in control right now.
