I'm looking at buying my first AR soon and I was wondering what thoughts were on buying a .22 AR. I would like to have a .223 but they're almost double in price. I was going to wait until february and buy a colt .223, however I assume an assault weapons ban is coming and I may not be able to get one at all if I wait that long. Can anyone advise on whether or not I would be wasting my money? Also, are their any reccomendations on what to buy. Thanks!
