I disagree with it being a waste of time. It might be a good idea to buy a complete AR first, but it's not necessary.
I have never owned an AR-15 before, and I am building my first one. I have done the research, and looked into what was good and bad, and gotten advice/help from a lot of people here.
So far, the lower is completely done, and the upper is on the way. The lower fits me perfectly. It is very comfortable to hold, and feels natural.
